Destination: Sri Lanka. Video Guide.
This video guide was developed by the Peace Corps' Office of World Wise Schools. The activities it describes are designed to supplement elementary and secondary students' exploration of South Asia and to enhance their correspondence with a Peace Corps volunteer. Used in conjunction with the videotape "Destination: Sri Lanka," the activities in the guide provide students with the opportunity to: (1) identify similarities and differences between their lives and the lives of young people in another country; (2) apply fundamental geographic themes to Sri Lanka; and (3) research the geography and culture of the Peace Corps volunteer's host country. Teachers should select tasks from each section that are most appropriate for the interest and experience levels of their particular students. For ease of selection, activities and worksheets are arranged first by level and then by topic. A list of 56 references and 5 organizations is attached. (LBG)
