Program on Teaching Asia


As an area with a rich past and diverse cultural background, Asia is an essential field for history teachers today, yet it can often be difficult to cover such an extensive area and field of study. Changing dynamics in the Far East, as well as the fact that Asia is home to some of the world’s leading powers, make accurate education on this subject more crucial than ever. In order to best present this information to students, it is important that teachers not only understand the topic, but are also capable of explaining modern-day events in their historical context. This program offers educators the unique opportunity to expand their content knowledge on Asian history and culture, as well as learn about how the region impacts the United States.
