Exploring East Asia for K-12 Educators: Common Foundations, Different Journeys

This free, online foundational seminar presented by University of Maryland, Baltimore County and NCTA at the University of Pittsburgh will provide educators all you need to help students see that East Asia is NOT one entity. While China, Korea, and Japan do indeed share some cultural underpinnings, they each embarked on different pathways that make it impossible to tell just one story of East Asia’s development. Our lecturers (all UMBC faculty) will walk you through these exciting narratives by using primary sources and samples of visual culture that are perfect for incorporating into your own curricula and classrooms.
