NEA - Exploring Global Questions in Asian Perspective (Virtual)

 In courses already straining to cover the world’s diverse history, literature, and geography, incorporating Asia has often necessitated an additional compromise: what material to cut? This PD sessions seeks to alleviate this issue by considering Asia not as a new, replacement curriculum, but as a way of gaining important global perspectives on familiar questions: the discovery and conquest of the new world, the industrial revolution, World War I, and the global supply chains that define our modern world. This 6 hour workshop will meet for 3 hours synchronously over zoom June 8, (8:30-11:30) followed by an additional 3 hours of asynchronous modules via google classroom whereby teachers can workshop more specific lesson plans and resources. In the past we allowed participants a week to complete the asynchronous portion. Teachers are then sent complementary classroom resources and a stipend upon successful completion of the workshop. This session will explore the role of East Asia in addressing the biggest environment, economic, and political issues in our world today, and provide teachers with books, digital curricula, and pedagogical tools for making sense of Asia’s growing importance on the world stage.
