A series of NCTA Master Teacher workshops on integrating East Asia into your classroom.
Join us for a teacher to teacher presentations that will cover content, strategies, implementation, and resources for bringing East Asia into your classroom this year.

This presentation will examine the foundations of world beliefs, how (and why!) to teach about them in a social studies classroom, and ways to help students see their relevancy in the world today. Participants will learn most directly about the basic tenets of Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Emphasis will be placed on the worldviews that underpin each faith, how they are connected, and how they are distinct. Resources will be shared and opportunity to work in collaborative online groups will be given, to simulate the student learning experience.
