Larkin, Julie; Dowling, Seamus
This unit of study focuses on belief systems from China. It is crucial that students understand there are different ways of viewing the world, all of which may be valid. The 20 lessons in the unit stem from the presumptions that place students in the role of "historian" for the duration of these China studies. The unit is divided into the following sections: "A Note to the Teacher"; "Standards Addressed in This Unit"; "Resources"; "Literacy Connections"; "Historian Tips"; "Essential Questions for Inquiry"; "Document Based Questions"; "Lesson Plans"; and "Resource Packet." The unit contains the following lessons: "Historian Tip 1: What Is a Historian?"; "Historian Tip 2: What We Already Know about China"; "Historian Tip 3: Where Is China?"; "Historian Tip 4: Maps of China";"Historian Tip 5: The Daily Lives of the Ancient Chinese"; "Historian Tip 6: The Chinese Zodiac"; "Historian Tip 7: Oracle Bones"; "Historian Tip 8: The Chinese Writing System"; "Historian Tip 9: Chinese Paper Making"; "Historian Tip 10: Confucian Sayings"; "Historian Tip 11: Chinese Folktales and Confucius"; "Historian Tip 12: Confucian Relationships"; "Historian Tip 13: The Life of Buddha"; "Historian Tip 14: The Four Noble Truths and the Eight Fold Path"; "Historian Tip 15: Karma"; "Historian Tip 16: The Silk Route"; "Historian Tip 17: Daoism"; "Historian Tip 18: Legalism"; "Historian Tip 19: School Rules in 1315 and Today"; and "Historian Tip 20: Gender Stereotypes, China in the 1300s and the U.S. Today."
