Visible Traces. Teacher's Guide.
ASIA Society, New York, NY.; Queens Borough Public Library, Jamaica, NY.
This teacher's guide is based on the exhibition, "Visible Traces: Rare Books and Special Collections from the National Library of China," a collaborative effort of the Queens Borough Public Library and the National Library of China; it links rare treasures from the National Library of China to curriculum standards. The following themes are explored in this guide: "Traces of Boundaries: Mapping One's Place in the World"; "Traces of Ideas: Communicating through Writing and Technology"; "Traces of Belief: Making Values Tangible through Word and Image"; "Traces of Identity: Reflecting Diversity through Language and Writing"; and "Traces of the Self: Expressing Individuality through Poetry and Calligraphy." Each theme-based chapter consists of an introduction, one or two background essays, and two or three classroom activities. The chapters' introductions focus on the objects from the exhibition, while the essays explain the larger historical context relating to the "Visible Traces" objects and are intended for the teacher. The classroom activities are organized by educational levels, with variations suggested for adaptation to a particular grade. Includes reproducible handouts. (BT)
