Exploring India: An Interdisciplinary Approach. Fulbright-Hays Summer Seminars Abroad 1998 (India).
These unit lessons are designed to supplement a study of India. The lessons provide enrichment activities in history, mythology and religion, social customs, and demographics. Though originally designed for ninth-grade world geography students, the lessons are appropriate for use in grades 6-12 by students with a variety of skill levels and learning modalities. The lessons consist of four units. All four units emphasize connections between cultures, in forming points of identity and commonality. Titles of the units are: (1) "An Eye for an Eye Makes the Whole World Blind: Teaching Modern Indian History through the Film 'Gandhi'"; (2) "You Who Have Sprung from Heaven and Earth: A Self-Directed Exploration of Hindu Mythology"; (3) "Tradition and Modernity: Forming Connections between Cultures"; and (4) "Discovering Demographics: A Lesson in Reading, Interpreting, and Displaying Demographic Data." Each unit contains a rationale, sources, strategies, and evaluation options. (BT)
