25 Questions Along the Tea Road (Revised)
How does your life compare to others along the Tea Road? And how has life changed along this road?
This is a project that is meant to introduce students to a wide variety of cultures and daily life of people along the historic Silk Road through the eyes of others from other countries and cultures. Using video, audio, still images and interviews through the Tracing Tea project (http://tracingtea.com/), students will create multimedia presentations  that compare and contrast their lives with people living along the Tea Road today and in history. The hope is to bring relevance and understanding to students about history and current day international, cross cultural relations.
