Intended for high school students, two humanities lessons on India approach India from a "world cultures" perspective. In the first lesson, "Story Scrolls," pairs of students create and present stories from Hindu mythology using traditional methods. The lesson gives content objectives, skills objectives, and evaluation/assessment criteria, as well as background information on India, procedure for the activity, and iconography. In the second lesson, "Project Ganesh," students, working in groups of 3-4, research contemporary issues of importance to India and create a position paper that describes the current situation; examines the history of the issue; and then explores planned actions/changes that will affect the issue in the future. The lesson lists content objectives, skills objectives, and evaluation/assessment criteria, and provides background information and possible research topics. Contains 14 annotated references and selected resources. (BT)
