Asian-American Media Skills Handbook.
Haines, Roberta M., Comp.
This handbook is for teachers to use in the classroom and as a reference source for information about Asia and Asian-Americans. The handbook uses information about geography and culture to teach skills such as almanac, atlas, and encyclopedia use. Other student exercises include: how to sequence a Chinese fairy tale and present it to the class, how to research a Chinese holiday using various reference sources and how to plan its celebration, and how to give a slide presentation using Asian subject matter. The handbook includes a guide to evaluation of materials about Asian-Americans, a list of the countries included in the category "Asia," and a listing of Asian embassies, information services, and organizations in the United States. The handbook closes with listings of the artifacts contained in a "Chinese Traveling Trunk" and a "New Americans Traveling Trunk," available on loan to district teachers for use in enhancing understanding of Asian culture. There is also a 20 page bibliography arranged by country. (CG)
