India through Inquiry: An Examination of Strategies and Resources. Service Center Paper on Asian Studies, No. 9.
Cody, Donald K.
This teaching guide presents a description of the inquiry method as applied to the study of India. Some specific techniques are presented that might be employed to use India-related materials for secondary level Asian studies. The inquiry learning method is emphasized, in contrast to most materials on the study of India which offer a traditional, historical approach. Some basic principles of inquiry with examples of how they can be applied to the Indian unit are described in the first section. The second section discusses materials that can be employed -- maps, pictures, readings, and data. The third section describes some values clarification techniques that work well with India materials. The final section explores the need for revisions in evaluation, and suggests possible tools for testing and evaluation. Source materials are recommended and illustrated throughout. (Author/ND)
