From Round to Square (and back)

For The Emperor's Teacher, scroll down (↓) to "Topics." It's the management book that will rock the world (and break the vase, as you will see). Click or paste the following link for a recent profile of the project:

A new post appears every day at 12:05* (CDT). There's more, though. Take a look at the right-hand side of the page for over four years of material (2,000 posts and growing) from Seinfeld and country music to every single day of the Chinese lunar calendar...translated. Look here ↓ and explore a little. It will take you all the way down the page...from round to square (and back again).
*Occasionally I will leave a long post up for thirty-six hours, and post a shorter entry at noon the next day.

Primary Sources—Resource Center

The "Primary Sources" readings are broken down into various segments, starting with an introductory essay in eight parts and all of the elementary school readers from the Ministry of Education in Taiwan (c. 1985). Feel free to find your way. I recommend reading the posts in order, but it's your decision.

We're just getting underway in this series, and it will take the better part of two years to post all 276 texts. There is plenty here for starters, though, so let's get to work.

Introduction to "Primary Sources"
Introduction (e)—Butterflies                                       Introduction (f)—K-12, c.1985
Introduction (g)—Impassioned Communities            Introduction (h)—History, Language, and Culture, c.1985

*Note that the first semester of first grade has only twelve texts. This is because the first half of the semester is spent learning the 注音符號 (zhuyinfuhao) pronunciation system and doing pronunciation drills. All eleven semesters that follow have twenty-four lessons per semester.
