Those studying the Indian subcontinent may be interested in the home page of India's constitutional government. It includes schedule and proceedings information for both houses of parliament, as well as links and other facts and information about government in India.

tag(s): asia (67), democracy (15), india (26)

In the Classroom

A World History or government class could use this site to compare and contrast the government structure of India to that of the United States. Share the site on the interactive whiteboard or projector and use an online venn diagram to compare what they're reading about India to what they already know about the US. Use an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram (reviewed here). This would be a great segway into a discussion of the effects of globalization, varying cultures, or even a dialogue on how India came to have the government they do.

This site offers historical, cultural, political, and travel information about Malaysia. The reading level may be a bit high for some middle schoolers, but the site could be a great source of research information for studies of other cultures and peoples.

tag(s): asia (67), religions (57)

In the Classroom

Use the historic timeline to study the spread of Islam to Malaysia and the rest of South East Asia during the 15th century. The timeline is extremely detailed and can actually be used as a learning center or station too. To help guide students through the content, we recommend creating a graphic organizer. For help making those, try Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).

This site offers a thorough and graphically well-designed introduction to the history, cultures, and 20th century politics of India and its neighbors. While a bit text-heavy, visuals support most of the sections, and the content could be useful for research projects or general information. The site includes a short biography of Mahatma Ghandi. This is a "labor of love" site created by two faculty members at UCLA.

tag(s): india (26)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a unit studying India. This activity works best if students have a graphic organizer to accompany the information - we recommend a tool such as Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).

Introduce this site on the interactive whiteboard before allowing students to read it on their own on classroom computers or paper. This would be a great addition to a unit on Buddhism in a wold history classroom.
