In the workshop, middle and high school social studies teachers will learn about the geographies, histories, belief systems and economies of China, Japan, the Koreas, and Taiwan, as well as major contemporary international and domestic issues that affect both Asian countries and U.S.-Asia relations. In the space below, please address why you are interested in learning more about two or more of these topics and how you might use what you learn to better educate your students.

If accepted for this professional development program, I agree to complete brief preparatory assignments, attend the Tuesday, June 22nd and Wednesday, June 23rd workshops, as well as a follow-up virtual workshop in the fall (if a schedule conflict occurs with the fall virtual workshop, participants who wish to receive NCTA alumni credit or advanced NCTA certification will be provided a digital alternative).
