I teach at the high school level and sometimes I teach Government. If your student are anything like mine, they are curious about China and they know that China is a global power but they don't know much else. I came across this website and I thought it would be great for kids to be able to compare the two nations in various ways that they maybe interested in.

I love this tool. This is great for my students. I can have them compare China to any of the Latin American countries they need to know information on for their AP exam, especially for communist and socialist Latin American governments. Thank you for sharing it!

Wow! This is extremely useful information! A little out of date, but I could see the broad information being very useful for comparing countries, especially when paired with some more updated date, asking students to find primary sources for looking at how things are now, and how they've changed.

Thanks for the link! Definitely bookmarking this one!
