And Tara Tate has begun compiling a dropbox of matrerials for teaching about the china topic
Courtesy of some time, my lack of expertise on China, and a summer curriculum project through Glenbrook, I have created a Dropbox of curriculum materials on the new China topic for any teacher that is. A lot of the materials are for the purpose of providing background material on China/US foreign policy. This was primarily designed for my novice class (we are in the midst of our China unit now) that has both policy and non-policy debaters in it. In the Dropbox link below, you will find materials others have contributed (thank you!) plus an internal folder with my plans. I have a day-to-day lesson plan guide that includes activities, an in-class mini debate plus a “silent debate”, a formative assessment – this guide is still a work in progress. This entire Dropbox is a collaboration – please feel free to add materials as well. The more, the better!
