Asia has some of the world’s oldest civilizations—and some of the most significant today. This new supplement explores the past achievements of leading Asian nations and examines the international role they will play in the future in politics, electronics, finance, marketing and trade. A special “How Many Californias” feature helps students understand Asian countries by comparing them to our most populous state. This supplement is a perfect choice for May, which is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. Supplement comes with a FREE Teacher Guide that can extend deliveries of newspapers up to four weeks. Because creation of this supplement was made possible by the support of Ford Motor Company Fund, it is branded with the Fund logo and includes a quarter-page thank you ad acknowledging the Fund’s support on the inside back cover. NIE programs are free, however, to seek local sponsorship, and to use the back page to acknowledge local sponsors. The support of Ford Motor Company Fund may open doors for sponsorship by local Ford dealerships. No competing auto companies may be sponsors. These materials are not available in Michigan.
