Turkovich, Marilyn; Hollick, Julian Crandall
This curriculum packet is based on a National Public Radio series of 10 one-hour programs produced in India between 1986 and 1989. The tape cassette is designed to introduce middle and high school students to the people and land of India. The three programs on the tape include: (1) "Listening to India," which exposes the listener to the sound of everyday Indian life; (2) "On the Shore of Vast Humanity," which presents the diversity of land, religion, and language through poetry and song; and (3) "Beneath the Surface," which offers conversations with six Indian teenagers about their values and life goals. The booklet provides individual lessons to help students understand the complexity of India, its expansive topography, and the diversity of its people. (Contains 17 references.) (EH)
