Pengyou Posted March 25, 2022 at 01:34 AM Report Share Posted March 25, 2022 at 01:34 AM I am teaching a short course in Chinese geography (6 weeks long) to grade 8 students. The book uses an unusual way of dividing China, dividing it into 4 regions instead of 6. We have the North (Dongbei + Beijing and Xianxi), the Northwest, the Southwest and then the South. I am looking for themes to use, more tangible handles than just North, Northwest. For example, for the Northwest, I am going to call it the geography of The Silk Road. For the South, I am going to call it the geography of the Yangze River. Both of these topics provide a tangible image in students and are broad enough to encompass all of the geography that I want to include. I am looking for themes for the NW and SW. They must be NONPOLITICAL! That is one of my problems - most of what I know about Xizang is political. Thanks for any suggestions you can provide.
