A South Asia Curriculum: Teaching about India.
Greenberg, Hazel Sara; Mahony, Elizabeth, Ed.
This curriculum evolved as an interactive cooperation between South Asian scholars and an educator/curriculum writer. The materials are congruent with the mandates of the New York State Global Studies program. Each lesson provides focus questions, performance objectives, procedures with accompanying student materials, and a summary/application. Teaching strategies also are included. Each student worksheet is keyed to the lesson with the same title and sequentially numbered worksheets. The teacher's guide is divided into the following themes: (1) "The Physical/Historical Setting"; (2) "The Dynamics of Change"; (3) "Contemporary South Asian Nations and Cultures"; (4) "Economic Development in South Asia"; and (5) "South Asia in the Global Context." Appendices provide a scope and sequence, a bibliography, and a videography. (EH)
