GlobaLinks: Resources for Asian Studies, Grades K-8.
The growing accessibility of the Internet in schools and homes has removed borders and barriers to learning. Schools can maximize students' multicultural experiences by developing curricula that heighten global consciousness and responsibility. This book seeks to offer current resources that are available for purchase or through school and public libraries that help fulfill national standards for social studies, geography, language arts, information literacy, science, technology, life skills, and character education. The book is intended as a guide for unlocking the treasures of Asia's history, people, culture, and environment. Part 1 offers specialized resources on Asia, grouped into sections on Central Asia, East Asia, Southeast Asia, Southern Asia, and Southwest Asia. It begins with general Asian fiction; folktales, fairy tales, myths, and legends; nonfiction and reference; Asian Americans; and videos if there are extensive resources. There are also subdivisions by genre. Part 2 lists Asia resource Web sites for specific countries. Part 3 lists e-mail addresses and listservs available for key pal/pen pal projects for classroom collaborations or individual pursuit. Appendix A includes World Resource Web sites that can be used for research of specific Asian countries. Appendix B contains a Web site by title index. Appendix C lists short story and folktale titles mentioned in annotations. (Contains author/illustrator, title, and subject indexes.) (BT)
