New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Secondary Curriculum Development.
This guide, part 2 of a two-part publication, contains resource units on life today in China which can be used with 9th-grade students. The materials and activities, gathered by American secondary-school teachers who visited China in 1973, are intended to provide a pattern for an elective course or supplementary material for regular social studies courses. Suggested teaching techniques include readings, classroom discussion, media, research, and class reports. The resource units treat the following topics: Economic Life: An Analysis Module; Sex Roles, Marriage, and the Family: A Valuing Module; Education: A Comparison Module; and The Dissenter in the People's Republic. Teacher background material, student objectives, teaching methods, discussion questions, and classroom materials are provided for each unit. Sections suggesting methods for teaching students to weigh evidence and sources of information for learning about China are also included. (Author/RM)
