SCCTA, South Carolina Center for Teaching about Asia - June 15-20, 2014
The South Carolina Center for Teaching about Asia (SCCTA) is offering this FREE residential seminar addressing social studies and global studies standards that pertain to East Asia. More details can be found at the SCCTA website.
As a residential program, this seminar has particular advantages. Participants are housed in apartment-like dorms with fellow teachers. The opportunities for informal discussions and networking are particularly rich. The speakers approach their presentations assuming that although participants teach about China and Japan, they most likely have had little opportunity for formal detailed instruction in the histories and cultures of these regions. The goal is to build
confidence in teaching about these fascinating and significant “major players” in the world current students are inheriting.
How to apply:
