2017 Professional Development Workshop on Teaching about East Asia
Maps are the cornerstone to understanding the network over land and water that characterize trade and commerce crossing East Asia. We’ll explore maps as representing the mindset of their makers—the differences between Eastern and Western cartography traditions—and set off on a journey that explores pilgrimages as well as the pathways of contemporary politics. Along the way, we’ll explore spices and artifacts, food and religion to provide an experiential , hands-on discovery designed to translate directly into classroom projects and lessons.
This year the University of Michigan offers a two-day immersion workshop to support educators in deepening their skills and knowledge in teaching about East Asia!
At the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor, Hatcher Graduate Library Gallery. Lodging will be available.
