Lesson for use with Prentice Hall World Geography Text

Prentice Hall World Geography Building a Global Perspective- Use with Unit 10
1. The rational for this lesson is to incorporate some primary source and videos into the world geography course work and fortify the content. This lesson fits into Unit 10 of our world geography course. Our school has adopted Prentice Hall's World Geography, "Building a Global Perspective". The skills that the student will have by the time they get to this unit are knowledge of the five themes of Geography which are location, place, human-environment interaction, movement and regions.
Section 1- The Emergence of Modern China
*Outline Mao's programs for building a Communist state in China
*Identify the Four Modernizations
*Describe the Chinese government's response to the 1989 democracy protests.

As there are no California standards for world geography, I listed the national standards.*
