Product Description
This one-page flyer provides information via links for educators to explore Open Source, resource-rich lessons about modern China. With its resources differentiated by levels of comprehension, these six non-fiction multimedia stories and accompanying lesson plans make modern China accessible for middle school, high school and university students. Its character-driven stories are grounded in a rare visit "home" taken by two American teen-aged adoptees who were born in China, abandoned during its one-child policy, and raised in the United States in Caucasian families. The adoptees return to the rural towns where they were left as newborns. There, Chinese girls, who are their age and grew up in the town, guide the Americans in discovering what it's like to grow up as a daughter in 21st century China. Their girls' cross-cultural discoveries are told in the stories, taught in the lessons and bolstered by constantly updated resources. The National Council for the Social Studies has endorsed Touching Home in China.
