Help spread the word:
NCTA is not running a Teaching about Asia seminar in Alabama in 2010 (although one may be offered 2011).
However, Alabama teachers may attend the residential seminar in Indiana this summer.
This summer the East Asian Studies Center (EASC) at Indiana University will hold a weeklong National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA) Teaching about Asia residential seminar in Bloomington, IN. The dates are from July 26 to July 31. Generously funded by the Freeman Foundation, the NCTA seminar is a no-cost professional development program for educators who are interested in learning about East Asian history and cultures. This one-week/30-hour seminar provides a broad overview of the history and cultures of China, Japan, and Korea and gives participants the opportunity to discuss classroom applications and resources. EASC will provide free University housing, parking, and most of the meals during the seminar.
Those who complete the program will receive:
* a solid foundation for teaching about East Asia;
* texts and resources on East Asia ($200 value);
* the option to purchase three graduate credits from Indiana University;
* a certificate of participation;
* a $300 grant to your school for the purchase of East Asian resources; and
* a $500 personal stipend.
Educators from Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Alabama, and Louisiana are eligible to apply. First priority is given to middle- and high-school teachers who are in the strongest positions to teach East Asia in their classes, but elementary educators may also apply. Highest priority is given to teachers of world geography, world history, world cultures, religion, economics, and language arts/literature. Media specialists, art teachers, world language teachers, guidance counselors, and Gifted and Talented teachers who are in a position to promote the sustained presence of Asia are also eligible to participate. In-service educators must be employed half-time or more in a K-12 public or private school to be eligible.
