http://www.askasia.org/
GRADE LEVEL: K-12
Written By: Hazel Jobe

CONTENT:
AskAsia, produced by the Asia Society, is your gateway to current information, news, and high-quality classroom resources on everything Asian.

AESTHETICS:
Small graphics and clean layout make for quick downloads.

ORGANIZATION:
Well-defined links guide you through each major section. A side navigation bar makes the sections accessible from any page on the site.

REVIEW:
The resources on this site are outstanding. Teachers will find a long list of instructional resources for Asian studies, a school-to-school bulletin board for making contacts, and access to information about professional development grants. Students will quickly find the Adult-Free Zone, where they can find E-pals, play Asian games and learn Asian words in the Activity Corner, visit the Virtual Gallery to download images and maps, or satisfy their curiosity about Asia at Kids Ask AskAsia. You will also find the most current information and related sites in the Information/News and Gateway to Asia sections.
