The Mao Era Through Primary Sources

Led by one of NCTA's Master Classroom Teachers, this four-week, 12-hour course for secondary educators will examine classroom-friendly source material (documents, memoir, and art) to consider Mao’s ideology and how it translated to the Chinese people through the Civil War (1945-49) period as well as the sociopolitical campaigns led by Mao from 1949-76. Course reading is light and the emphasis is on examining the source materials and discussing classroom strategies for their use. A stipend is available for those submitting an optional completion paper.
