This volume contains 23 lesson plans that were written for middle school teachers to help students learn about East Asia. The lessons are organized across six themes: (1) "People, Places & Environment"; (2) "Technology, Production, Distribution & Consumption"; (3) "Cultures, Continuity, and Change"; (4) "Aesthetics, Celebrations and Values"; (5) "Institutions, Power & Government"; and (6) "United States & Global Connections." The themes involve several areas of study including, geography, economics, agriculture, history, anthropology, archeology, arts and humanities, citizenship and government, and world cultures. Each lesson plan states the purpose, theme, suggested time, key vocabulary and concepts, materials needed, initiation, development, and key questions. Student handouts are included in this volume. Two appendices conclude the volume. The first appendix contains ideas for additional lesson plans that encompass the six themes. The second appendix contains maps of China, Japan, the Korean Peninsula, Taiwan and the entire continent of Asia. (LB)
