Tradition and Modernity: India's Quantum Leap into the 21st Century. Independent Curriculum Project. Fulbright-Hays Summer Seminars Abroad 1998 (India).
This lesson on India is suggested as a culminating activity to bring together previously taught units about infrastructure, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, ancient India, and contemporary India. The lesson's goals are to examine how a country's cultural background can influence change and to study the development of modern infrastructure. The students develop a board game that allows them to create as much infrastructure as possible. Directions for the game's creation are given in the lesson, as well as a list of the materials needed and project evaluation standards. Resources listed include videos (2), books (4), study prints (3), and slides (1). A relevant list of vocabulary terms on Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and India also is provided. (BT)
