Asian Studies in American Secondary Education. A Report on Two Conferences Sponsored by the Association for Asian Studies and the U.S. Office of Education.
Institute of International Studies (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC.
Proceedings of two conferences which brought together university scholars, secondary school teachers, and curriculum specialists concerned with expanding and improving Asian studies and with broader issues of international education in secondary education are reported here. The first conference, national in scope, convened February 20th, 1970 in New York, focusing on the methods and approaches available to those concerned with the teaching of Asian studies in American schools and analyzing and comparing ongoing Asian and African studies programs in California, Indiana, and New York. The second, a state conference held in Ohio during October 1970, evaluated the discussions and resolutions of the New York Conference and formulated a new Asian studies curriculum for Ohio's schools. Conference papers, reactions, summaries of discussions, a pilot project proposal, a report on findings, and several recommendations are offered in an effort to promote quality instruction in Asian studies.
