In an effort to infuse Asian studies in the social studies and literature curricula, the Stanford Program on International and Cross-Cultural Education (SPICE), in cooperation with the National Consortium for Teaching About Asia (NCTA), is offering a professional development opportunity at Stanford University. SPICE is a non-profit educational outreach program of the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI) at Stanford University. SPICE supports efforts to internationalize elementary and secondary school curricula by linking the research and teaching of FSI to the schools. The National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA) is an initiative to encourage and facilitate teaching and learning about Asia in world history, geography, social studies, and literature courses around the country.
SPICE, in cooperation with NCTA, is offering a series of seminars for middle school and high school social studies, world literature, and language arts teachers. The objectives of the program are to enrich the teaching of East Asia in the secondary school curriculum, develop a professional cross-district dialog, and foster a community of inquiry among educators interested in Asian studies.
