Touching Home China
Developed by global educators, Touching Home in China’s interdisciplinary and transmedia curriculum is aligned with national standards and applicable for middle school, high school and college level studies in World and American History, Asian Studies, Global Studies, Ethnic Studies, Women’s Studies, English/Language Arts, and more.
Each of the six lesson plans is presented in tandem with one of the transmedia stories on Touching Home China's website. These stories emerge from the cross-cultural encounters of American teens wrestling with their dual identity as Chinese-born daughters adopted into Caucasian families and only-child daughters growing up in rural China today.
Using the lesson plans, teachers and students explore a wide range of topics – contemporary China, gender, identity, race, population policy and multicultural America, to name a few. Curated resources – as video, audio and print stories – are identified by recommended reading level.
