The Changing World Today: Cultural Change in Japan, Kenya, and India. Student Text and Student Study Guide.
Clawson, Elmer U.; Rice, Marion J.
This student text and accompanying pupil study guide for intermediate grades examine cultural change in Japan, Kenya, and India. The unit objective is to help students examine processes of change occurring in the world today by systematically presenting cultural change concepts and illustrations in case study settings. The books provide students with intensive practice in the concepts developed in the unit. In addition to readings, open-ended questions, and suggested activities, the books contain exercises in which students match key words with definitions, write definitions, match examples or an illustration with a keyword, and answer thought questions. Both the student text and study guide consist of the following units: (1) Culture, (2) Cultural Change, (3) Industrialization and Urbanization in Japan, (4) Nationalism and Modernization in Kenya, and (5) Planned Agricultural Change in India. A glossary is included in the text, and exercise answers and multiple-choice chapter tests are provided in the study guide. (Author/RM)
