Nepal- Online Resource for K-12 Educators

Description:

In the Fall of 2003, a group of educators from Southeast Michigan traveled to Nepal as Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad Fellows. They participated in a series of seminars and field studies that introduced them to and immersed them in Nepali culture. They also were linked with Nepali teachers already engaged with Michigan teachers through a water quality monitoring exchange and were able to visit those teachers in their classrooms and observe students conducting water quality monitoring in the Seti River. As a result of their participation in cultural and environmental education activities during the three-week study tour, the Michigan teachers committed to contribute educational units that have become this Study Guide. The Study Guide offers teachers a valuable resource to bring Nepal to Michigan classrooms while meeting state standards and benchmarks.

Audience:

K-12 teachers of Asian languages and cultures.

Partners:

MSU's International Studies and Programs; MSU's Asian Studies Center; U.S. Department of Education Fulbright-Hays Program. There were many contributors from Michigan and Nepal.
