Teaching on the Silk Roads: A Workshop for K-12 Educators Resources for Educators

Teaching on the Silk Roads: A Workshop for K-12 Educators was an August 20, 2020 program that featured Dr. Margarita Delgado Creamer (University of Pittsburgh) and Dr. Thomas R. Mueller (California University of Pennsylvania) in an exploration of the global significance of the Silk Road trade network that connected India, Central and East Asia, and Europe for over a thousand years. Special focus is paid to the development of the New Silk Road and how the Silk Roads of the past are shaping China's Belt and Road Initiative. Part of our exploration of the Silk Roads will involve interactive mapping (using ArcGIS Online) which teachers and students can use throughout the school year.
