Bringing China to the Classroom. Profiles of Promise 38.
One year ago the Bay Area China Education Project (BAYCEP) was begun by specialists in Asian Studies from Stanford University and University of California, Berkeley. The purposes of BAYCEP are to develop a series of programs which will encourage the use of China-related materials in elementary and secondary schools and improve the methods and content of precollegiate teaching about China. BAYCEP staff members work as consultants to Bay Area elementary or secondary teachers who request their help. In addition to consulting, BAYCEP staff develop materials useful to teachers; two available products are an annotated bibliography (ED 092 469) of easily available materials on China and a short unit entitled Misunderstanding China (ED 092 421), focusing on the dispelling of stereotypes. The unit is highly adaptable and can be modified to meet the requirements of almost any classroom situation. For teachers who wish more indepth background preparation on China, BAYCEP conducts workshops in both content and additional teaching techniques. While BAYCEP is currently focusing on China, the associates hope to expand their services on other countries, with the next concentration to be Japan. (Author/JR)
