Basic Skills in Asian Studies: China. Service Center Papers on Asian Studies, No. 13.
This publication contains 20 learning activities for developing basic skills while teaching about China at the secondary level. The activities, which were field tested, are self-contained and include short readings followed by student work sheets. For developing skill in reading about China, the learning activities focus upon translating Chinese into English, pronouncing Chinese in English, classifying sources of information on China, and using reference books on China. The learning activities which teach critical thinking involve students in applying Chinese mathematical skills, comparing the economy of China with other Communist nations, and judging right from wrong using American and Chinese perspectives. To develop skill in understanding the history of China, students learn to tell time in the Chinese tradition, make a timeline in Chinese history, assess the Chinese Ladder of Success, and analyze the 1978 Constitution of China. Students develop skill in interpreting the geography of China by drawing inferences about the location of China and by analyzing satellite pictures of China. A posttest is included. (Author/RM)
