The Program for Teaching East Asia at University of Colorado invites applications to its 2010 summer institute, “China’s Century? Global Issues, Classroom Applications.”
Designed for secondary social studies teachers, the institute will run from July 19-23 and will consider China’s role in the world through examination of domestic and international issues. The program offers teachers a unique opportunity to consider these issues with specialists who will share diverse perspectives on a “Chinese Century.” Among the questions that frame the institute are the following:
What are the domestic policies that fuel China’s growing global role?
What responsibilities will China shoulder to protect global resources?
How is China's economic reach into Central Asia and Africa affecting regional and international relations?
How do U.S. policymakers respond to China's emerging role as a global leader?
All costs of the residential program are covered and teachers receive a travel and living expense stipend. For additional information visit www.colorado.edu/cas/tea .
