Indonesia and the Challenge of Development. Fulbright-Hays Summer Seminars Abroad Program (November, 1991).
Institute of International Education, New York, NY.
This collection of works from the Fulbright-Hays Summer Seminar presents curriculum projects and cross cultural studies developed by the participants. The 18 works deal with Indonesia and the problems facing developing nations. Subjects include tradition, popular culture, change, and economic development and its impact on women. Indonesia is compared with nations in Africa, and with the United States in a project dealing with freedom of speech, censorship, and freedom of the press. Some of the works include reference bibliographies, maps, classroom handouts, and lesson plans. Many of the items included are materials and projects for teachers to use as a basis for a lesson plan or unit. A teacher workshop agenda provides all materials necessary to hand out to students, a list of goals for the program, and the agenda and program for a teacher workshop on Indonesia. Several units consist of syllabi for university courses and include required and reserve readings, videos, and course outlines. Research proposals also are included. Plans suitable for elementary or secondary school levels include materials covering geography, history, economics, anthropology, and government. Mass communication is discussed in several works. Because of the diverse nature of the population and cultures making up Indonesia, some of the projects deal with multiculturalism, unity in diversity, and problems relating to ethnic and religious differences.
