East Asian Case Studies in Human Geography: Population, Migration, and Innovation

How do you teach about East Asia or use the many outstanding classroom resources of NCTA if you do not teach an Asian Studies course? Over the past ten years of my association with NCTA, I have incorporated Asia content and case studies into general history, social studies, and humanities classes. During this workshop, I would like to share three examples from my AP Human Geography class:
Population and Demographic Transition through a comparison of Japan’s declining birth rates with Northern India
Migration of Chinese workers from villages to cities - Factory Girls, Girls on the Line, and Ai Wei Wei's documentary Human Flow.
Innovation in North and South Korea: a tale of two industrializations
