This course is an in depth examination into the historical development of modern Asia. Our study will focus on China, India, Indochina (Vietnam and Cambodia). We will also weave in connections with Japan, North and South Korea, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and other parts of Asia. Students will have opportunities to pursue some individual interests about other countries of east, south, southeast and west Asia. There will be an emphasis on current events with our goal being to understand political, economic, environmental, geographic, and social terms as they relate to Asian countries, the challenges Asian countries face today, and trends in Asia. There will be 4 thematic units of study:
Geography & Identity
Beliefs & Values

How the overall usage of the space will evolve will depend on the creative ideas of both the students and teacher. Remember, that as a member you have the ability to edit, add to, and change any page. Just be sure your additions/changes are appropriate. Please don't delete anything without checking with the teacher or original contributer first unless there is a blatant error.
