For more than a thousand years, China led the world in innovation. And then, about 500 years ago, it lost its creative edge to the West. As China’s Communist Party prepares to celebrate 60 years in power, China hopes to regain its advantage. This audio segment from PRI's The World Science Podcast explores the roots of China's creative past, and the geographical, political, and economic factors that might have contributed to its apparent demise.

Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
