A handbook which provides methods and techniques that are designed to involve students in a variety of learning activities to broaden their perceptions of the world. The activities are student oriented and include an overview of approaches to teaching about the non-Western world. The hand-book includes models of non-Western studies programs and a list of major resources and curriculum projects in non-Western studies.
The book is divided into four sections. The first is a brief overview of various approaches to teaching about the non-Western world. This is followed by several sample models of non-Western studies programs. While these are not complete, they should give the reader an adequate idea of various ways non-Western studies methods for teaching non-Western studies. These have been designed as instructions with appropriate examples, but teachers should feel free to vary them as they wish. The last section is divided into two parts. The first is a listing of some of the major resources in non-western studies. It should be noted that this is not a comprehensive listing, but represents some of the major, in our opinion, best resources.
