In an effort to infuse Asian studies in the social studies and literature curricula, the Stanford Program on International and Cross-Cultural Education (SPICE), in cooperation with the National Consortium for Teaching About Asia (NCTA), is offering a professional development opportunity at Stanford University.
This all day workshop will focus on teaching about contemporary China in the social studies classroom. Participants will hear from top China scholars, engage in China related curriculum, and network with other local teachers. This is the first workshop in a four part series.
During the course of the day, participants will learn about the challenges China faces, including their geopolitical, cultural, military, and economic significance.
