China is frequently the subject of US news, and students have a range of perceptions (and a lot of questions!) about the country and the people who live there. In this workshop, we’ll touch on several topics, including the Uyghur community and other minority groups, the outbreak of the coronavirus, biases against China, and more. We will provide Inquiry Design Model lesson plans and primary source material for classroom instruction, and we will help provide teachers and Social Studies Education students with relevant questions to ask and resources to draw from. Lunch will be provided.
Participants will receive a certificate from North Carolina Teaching Asia Network confirming 2 hours of professional development for the completion of this workshop.
