Bring South Asia to your Classroom!!

Photo of a Male teaching a classroom of young childrenFaculty and graduate students from the South Asia Center are available to present on topics of interest which satisfy New York Learning Standards for Social Studies (2-5) such as: geography, food and dress, family life, language, technology and development, folk arts and oral narrative traditions, history, religious practice, the environment, historical and contemporary political systems, the growth of India as an economic power, and migration within and from South Asia.

Check out page 9 to see some of the outreach activities we helped organize in 2012! In addition to classroom visits, we can work with teachers to design or revise lesson plans. We are particularly interested in working in rural school districts whose students may have limited experiences with South Asian cultures.
