High School Teaching Unit Plans on Inner Asia. Teaching Aids for the Study of Inner Asia, No. 4.
Fishman, Rosalind M.; And Others
Five teaching units for middle, junior high, and senior high school comprise this pamphlet, the fourth in a series of teaching aids about Inner Asia. The units were developed in 1975 by secondary school teachers who attended an inservice institute on Inner Asia at Indiana University. Objectives, activities, and resources are presented for each unit. One activity involves students in a simulation of barbarian and civilized groups to illustrate that certain "freedoms" must be sacrificed in order to become "civilized." Other objectives include understanding the importance of the horse on the steppe, influences of China and the Soviet Union on boundary clans, role of Buddhism as a religious force, and the diverse nature of clans within Inner Asia. Several of the units contain detailed outlines of content matter. Lists of books and pamphlets, learning activities, and audiovisual materials supplement the units. (AV)
