This resource, from AskAsia, features an essay by scholar Elgin Heinz on using Chinese literature in translation as a tool in social studies and language arts education. Studying Chinese literature provides opportunities for teachers and students to exercise the skills of examining evidence, comparing, contrasting, distinguishing stereotypes from useful generalizations, analyzing, synthesizing, inferring, and perceiving analogies. A list of books for potential study is included.
