Programs and Activities: Part 1. Guangdong, China, and Southeast Asia
Going Further 1 (15 minutes)
Relationships in Your Region
Site Leader: Part of this activity involves working with partners. Please be sure to allow enough time for individuals to create their drafts before breaking into discussion. Be sure to limit the entire activity to fifteen minutes.
Using Fred Walk's ARGWorld lesson on Indonesia as your model, work with a partner to draft a written lesson plan to show how you might adapt the major steps in his plan for your classroom. For instance, how might you teach the importance of relationships among location, people, and resources associated with the region in which they live? Be certain your draft engages students in cooperative and inquiry learning and includes their use of maps and other data sources.
