May 25 - Sept. 30, 2010

This course will focus upon teaching about culture and daily life in China, Japan, Korea, and Vietnam through the literacy curriculum. Teachers will use stories from and about East Asia as avenues for understanding places, peoples and ways of thinking, and will have opportunities to experience and explore other cultural elements such as storytelling, music and visual arts. The course will also touch on East Asian schoolchildren and their cultures in the U.S. Topics will include stereotypes and geography, common and divergent traditions, and the lives of East Asian children.
