The National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA) is a collaboration between seven East Asian Studies programs to support primary and secondary teachers in incorporating East Asia into their classrooms and to build a global competency for students.
Along with our partner sites, we provide learning though workshops, seminars, book groups and more through our programs. The Freeman Book Awards identifies quality texts from picture books to graphic novels. Our resources link to a wide range on online content, including primary resources and learning units aimed at students.
NCTA is funded by the Freeman Foundation. NCTA’s History.
