Two units of Asian materials for secondary students comprise this document. The first unit presents a brief history of Asian man and his environment, including geography, climate, ethnic groups, resources, food, and population. Following the historical narrative are community references and various learning experiences and activities which further aid the student's cultural awareness of Asia. An extensive glossary and a bibliography of resource materials conclude the unit. The second unit introduces cultural patterns of the Asian man by examining religion and philosophy, artistic and cultural expression, social aspects of Asian life, political patterns, ethnocentrism, pluralism, and cultural diffusion.
