In an effort to infuse Asian studies in the social studies and language arts 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 summer institute for middle school teachers at Stanford University. Over the course of three days, this summer institute will highlight the geography, cultures, religions, history, literature, and arts of East Asia, with a focus on ancient Chinese dynasties, feudal Japan, and the Silk Road. 



Participant benefits include:

  • Content lectures delivered by Stanford faculty and other experts
  • A teacher-centered learning environment that values globally minded classrooms
  • Curriculum demonstrations and pedagogy-focused discussions with SPICE curriculum experts
  • $250 professional stipend (upon completion of all seminar requirements)
  • Optional three units of credit from Stanford University Continuing Studies
  • Free books and extensive complimentary curricula and other teaching materials
  • Complimentary breakfasts and lunches. Parking permits will be provided.

* Please note that SPICE is unable to sponsor transportation and accommodation costs for this summer institute.
