Is There a Place for Asia in the K-12 Social Studies Curriculum? A Survey of Requirements and Common Course Sequences in the 50 States, 1987-1990.
Martin, Roberta; Gronewold, Sue
A nationwide survey of state education departments was conducted in order to learn the extent to which study of Asia is included in precollegiate education. It was found that there is a place for Asia in the curriculum. A course in world history, world geography, and/or world cultures is reportedly offered as part of the common course sequence in almost all 50 states, and is required in approximately 1/3 of the states. Responses from state education departments in each of 15 survey categories are included. The 15 categories are: (1) state; (2) contact persons; (3) state mandated requirements; (4) usual courses/sequences; (5) state textbook policy; (6) teacher training networks; (7) language provisions; (8) international high schools; (9) geographic alliance/JCEE (Joint Council on Economic Education); (10) other key organizations/individuals; (11) outreach programs; (12) mood of the state; (13) sister city/sister state relations; (14) other; and (15) notes. General conclusions from the survey are provided, as are a number of other summaries of survey data. (DB)
