Bring South Asia to your Classroom!!
Faculty 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. Contact Emera Bridger Wilson (email@example.com) for
