The culture, history and society of Sri Lanka provide an excellent resource for case studies that illustrate broader themes relevant to many community college courses. As a result, AISLS is commissioning a number of teaching units for use by community college teachers. These units may also be used by teachers of introductory courses at four-year colleges. At present, two units are available.
Teaching about the 2004 Tsunami
This unit is aimed at instructors of introductory courses in World Geography, Sociology. Cultural Anthropology, Environmental Studies, and World Religions.
Teaching the Ramayana
This unit is aimed at instructors of introductory courses in World Religions, Women’s Studies, World Literature, and World History.
