India. Grade Eleven. [Resource Unit IV.] Project Social Studies.
Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Project Social Studies Curriculum Center.
This unit on India is one of four resource units for an eleventh grade area studies course. The objectives for this unit are listed as to generalizations, skills, and attitudes. A double-page format relates objectives to pertinent content, teaching procedures and instructional materials. The materials lead pupils to make comparisons between India and China and also between India and Western Europe in terms of the economic, political, and social systems. The unit is used as a vehicle to develop a number of anthropological concepts related to the cultural problems of introducing technological change into a society. The unit calls for testing a theory of economic growth as well as a theory about which factors lead to revolutionary and which to reform movements. The introduction, concerned with the low living levels, compares the levels of living in India with those in China. Pupils are asked to do an independent study to decide if India has the geographic potential for as rapid economic growth as does China. A teacher's guide for the entire course is SO 006 320.
