Formatted Abstract/Summary
The resource is intended for use by students and teachers from diverse school curriculum areas, including Ancient History and Visual Arts, tertiary students from History, Museum Studies and Art History, and the general community. It is available to download from learning.

In terms of curriculum linkages, the resource acknowledges the cross-curriculum priority of Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia in the Australian curriculum (Foundation to Year 10) and the focus on developing learning experiences for students that support knowledge and understanding of Asian societies, cultures, beliefs and environments (see History/Cross-Curriculum-Priorities#Asia-and-Australias-engagement-with-Asia).

Teachers may find study of the 20 objects in the Nat Yuen Collection provides opportunities to develop classroom learning activities that can be integrated into existing units of study, or adapted to suit student needs.

For Queensland teachers, this resource is useful for the Senior Ancient History and Senior Visual Arts learning areas (see Interdisciplinary themes that might be investigated include ‘animals in art’ ‘ancient design patterns and motifs’ ‘ceramic production’ ‘spiritual beliefs’ ‘Chinese export porcelain ’ ‘the role of patronage’ ‘Warring States in China’ and ‘political structures and power’. These themes align with the inquiry learning model in the senior Visual Art syllabus, and the general objectives of making and appraising, and with specific inquiry theme topics in the senior Ancient History syllabus , including ‘Studies in conflict’; ‘Studies of the everyday lives of people in ancient societies’ and ‘Studies of funerary practices’.
