Fulbright Hays Summer Seminar Abroad Program: Curriculum Projects, 1984.
National Committee on United States-China Relations, New York, NY.
Three separate curriculum projects were developed to help secondary school educators to teach about the People's Republic of China. "How does China feed its one billion people?" (Susan Ember) is a lesson plan that seeks to make students aware of the dilemma of food supply and shortages in poor, underdeveloped countries. "The history, geography, and language of China," (Dennis D. Smith) provides middle school teachers with a resource guide for the delivery of an exploratory unit of China. "China Connection: A computer simulation game" (Patricia Wasley and Micki McKisson) presents a sample of each of the component parts of a computer simulation game designed to encourage higher level thinking skills and greater global understanding while teams of students engage in simulated travel through four cities in China via the computer. Sections from the teacher's travel guidebook, the student's travel guidebook, and from information contained in the computer are included in order to demonstrate how the game works. (DB)
