Project on Asian Studies in Education (PASE).
Michigan Univ., Ann Arbor. Project on Asian Studies in Education.
The focus of the Project on Asian Studies in Education (PASE) is assistance to teachers in secondary schools and two and four year colleges in the Midwest to improve their instruction of Asian Studies through better teacher training and guidance in selecting educational materials. This is to be accomplished by: 1) providing a Resource Center with a coordinator and library of materials to aid teachers in planning their curricula; 2) in-service training for secondary school and college instructors through seminars, conferences, and a year's study for secondary teachers at Michigan's Asian area center; 3) providing greater learning opportunities at all levels for future teachers of Asian Studies. Special aspects of this project include a Mediamobile, a mobile unit with selected resources for dissemination, and Mini Courses, packages which use current pedagogical materials to develop units concerning Asia culture.
