This interdisciplinary seminar for K-12 teachers will explore how rivers have shaped, and in turn were shaped by human society and the environment in China and Japan. Combining geographic background with artistic representations, and environmental/political perspectives, this workshop will help teachers gain a comparative perspective on Asia’s landscape and culture. Geared toward secondary teachers, course content will look at rivers through the lens of geography, the arts, and environmental challenges.
