Well, I got on a roll with those overviews today, so I also wrote up overviews for the three Buddhist reading units in the India module too. I am so excited to have these units available! One reason is that I know many students are truly interested in Buddhism but might not get any other chance to encounter it in their other classes. Also, the jataka stories in particular are one of the great storytelling traditions of the world! I had a jataka week in the World Literature course that I used to teach, but I had to give up that course a few years ago because of the high demand for upper-division classes (it was lower-division). So, I am really excited to have the jatakas back as part of my class once again!
