Write About Asia: 2022 Freeman Award Winners

The National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA), the Committee on Teaching about Asia (CTA) of the Association for Asian Studies (AAS), and Asia for Educators (AFE) at Columbia University sponsor the annual Freeman Book Awards for new young adult and children’s literature. The awards recognize quality books for children and young adults that contribute meaningfully to an understanding of East and Southeast Asia.

During this online workshop, facilitated by Lyn Jackson and Nora Douglass, teachers will study and write about the 2022 Freeman Award books for children and young adults. Participants will review the 2022 Freeman Award Winners for grades 2-12, read and write about the texts, and share written responses with other writers.
