What are the fundamental differences between Western philosophies and Native North American ways of knowing? (Generally, how does each culture view the world and education?) How can you incorporate
seemingly different ways of knowing in your curriculum? When responding to your classmates' posts, take the role of a student of a Native North American culture and ask a what if question.
The most fundamental difference between Western philosophy and Eastern philosophies is that Western philosophies are largely reductionistic. [ They try to start with basic building blocks and build up to an answer or an explanation of a more complex thought. They try to explain things. Eastern philosophies begin with an explanation or an answer already known and the student must find a way to
get there. Somehow the proof of the puzzle has been lost, but the structure of the universe is known. There have been some Western philosophers who have espoused an Eastern way of thinking, Plato for one. Plato believed that we already know everything we want to know, but the process of birth somehow caused us to forget it. If we think hard enough, we can remember what we already know. There really are no why questions in Eastern philosophy; a better question is: Because? Also, the western idea of mysticism, monasticism, solitude, and prayer come closer to Eastern ways of knowing. ]

What is the significance of the city Anyang, China User: What are the significance of the city Anyang, China?
Weegy: Xiaonanhai, on the far western edge of the city, was home to prehistoric cavemen during the Stone Age. [ Over 7,000 artifacts (including stone tools and animal bone fossils) have been unearthed here, representing what has been dubbed the Xiaonanhai culture.[1] Around 2000 BC, the legendary sage-kings Zhuanxu and Emperor Ku are said to have established their capitals in the area around Anyang from where they ruled their kingdoms. Their mausoleums are today situated in Sanyang village south of Neihuang County.[1] At the beginning of the 14th century BC, King Pangeng of the Shang Dynasty established his capital 2 km (1.2 mi) north of the modern city on the banks of the Huan River. The city, known as Yin, was the first stable capital in Chinese history and from that point on the dynasty that founded it would also become known as the Yin Dynasty. The capital served 12 kings in 8 generations including Wu Ding, under whom the dynasty reached the zenith of its power, until it was wiped out along with the dynasty that founded it by King Wu of the Zhou in 1046 BC. Anyang's Tangyin County was the seat of Yue Village, birthplace of the famous Song Dynasty general, Yue Fei. This was also the historic home of Zhou Tong, Yue's military arts tutor (though fictional sources place him in Shaanxi). ] (More)

Weegy: A global school is one that "prepares children to become citizens of the world and to be aware of the cultures and countries beyond their own", according to Clare W all, the global education coordinator at Batheaston primary school in Bath. [ [ "I think that is one of the most crucial things we as teachers have to teach young children." Wall takes her responsibilities seriously because most of the school's predominantly white, British pupils have only what they see on TV or in the newspapers to fuel their understanding of what it means to live in a multicultural society. Wall, though, is slowly changing their perspective on their world - beginning by establishing a school allotment. "There is a plot for every class and the food they grow goes back into the school kitchen, so they are eating the food they grow. The garden is part of a wider sustainability project, which has got them thinking about world environmental issues." The project has also encouraged the children to think more analytically and develop simple critical skills. "They are much more willing to think about the bigger issues and are much more motivated," admits Wall. Job satisfaction But the benefits of bringing a global dimension into the classroom go beyond creating more motivated pupils. It also brings additional professional satisfaction. Sarah Howells is international coordinator at Danum school technology college, in Doncaster, with a pupil roll of 2,000. Taking on this new role allowed her to complete a masters module in international partnerships to improve both her understanding of the global dimension and her professional skills. "This work has really helped me to think about whole-school teaching. It's been a huge asset to me. Because of the global links with other schools I have also made new friends with colleagues across the world, especially with our partner schools in Turkey, Poland and Germany, who I am in regular email contact with." All primary and secondary schools ... (More)
