Service Center Papers on Asian Studies: A Critical Guide to Four Published Asian Studies Curriculum Programs. Number One.
Davis, Daniel F.
Four selected East Asian Studies programs for secondary grades are analyzed and evaluated in this paper, intended as a guide for teachers and, moreover, as a model for the assessment of similar programs. Categories of criteria utilized in each evaluation are: scope and sequence, structure, level of questions, arrangement of readings and adequacy of sources. Asian Studies Inquiry Program uses a multidisciplinary approach to examine Asian thought and the historical and changing patterns of Asian life. Having both excellent materials and sources, the author feels that this is the best "total program" available. A Look Across Cultures: China, and A Look Across Cultures: Japan, are thematic, discipline oriented, and traditional, providing inadequate treatment of concepts and analytical questions. With adequate conceptual preparation and rearrangement of and supplement to the readings, the projects have merit. Kansas Extra-Mural Project focuses on the treatment of major philosophical strands of thought. The project is excellent for those concerned with the thinking process. (Author/SJM)
