Teaching East Asian Literature

Teachers who have experienced this workshop rave about it. For 6 days in July, on the beautiful campus of Indiana University in Bloomington, experts in the history and literature of China, Japan, and Korea lecture and discuss the full range of literature in English translation, from classical, pre-modern, and modern writers. Two days are spent on the literature of each country. Participants come to the workshop having already received the course packets and books, so are prepared for discussion in advance. A master world literature teacher each day guides the implementation of the day’s selected literature into options for lesson plans and classroom activities. In the evenings, additional cultural options are scheduled.
