Outlines of Buddhism in East Asia

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Participants will interact with primary sources in Buddhist arts, literature, and history that connect to major themes in social studies, such as the transmission of ideas between cultures and their local adaptations, the expression of values and beliefs in art and literature, the impact of religion on local societies and economies, and the role of religion in the contemporary world. Presenters will pair the introduction of themes and sources with teaching ideas modeled through a variety of engaging activities, including a fun and empowering gallery experience that cultivates observation and critical-thinking skills as it synthesizes big ideas.
