CHINA SINCE 1644
China Since 1644, the updated and retitled 2nd Edition of China in the World, explores China’s captivating history from the seventeenth century to the present through hundreds of compelling primary sources–imperial edicts, letters, short stories, essays, propaganda posters, maps, photographs, political cartoons, and more. Unit overviews, introductory essays, and timelines provide context, while a wealth of primary source-based classroom activities require close reading of texts, thoughtful evaluation of source documents, critical thinking, and visual literacy. Aligned to the Common Core State Standards, China Since 1644 encourages students to view events form multiple perspectives and genres as it guides them towards a deeper understanding of China.
Written by teachers for use with their students, China Since 1644 serves as a perfect companion to standard world history texts and courses in world literature. It is also ideal for courses on East Asian studies, the history of China, or Chinese language and culture at the high school and college level. The emphasis on document analysis makes it a valuable tool for AP® or IB® courses.
The downloadable resources include hundreds of full-length documents, full-color images, maps, and additional materials for students and teachers.
