Chinese Dynasties Part Two: The Song Dynasty through the Qing Dynasty is the second of a two-volume curriculum unit from Stanford Program on International and Cross-Cultural Education (SPICE).1 Anyone with exposure to the curriculum products previously offered by SPICE will find themselves on familiar ground with this unit.
This unit introduces students to Chinese history and provides an in-depth view of China from the Song Dynasty through the Qing Dynasty. Each dynasty left behind a unique legacy, from cultural and artistic
achievements, to new religions and philosophies, and innovative ideas about government, society, military strategy, and economy. The materials produced by Selena Lai and Waka Takahashi Brown comprehensively cover the Chinese Dynasties from 960 to 1911 with lessons that can be differentiated and adapted for grades five through twelve.
