Increase your knowledge of East Asia in 2018 beginning with the “Four Keys to the Culture of China” presentation from the Kansas Consortium for Teaching about Asia on Saturday, February 3rd at 4:30 PM, Room #126A in the Carlson Center at Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, KS.
“Four Keys to the Culture of China” will benefit educators in all grades and subject areas by providing content and additional resources needed to enhance teaching about this increasingly important country. East Asian topics provide good case studies for investigating how societies are shaped by beliefs, ideas and diversity (Kansas SS Standard #3), and how societies experience continuity and change over time (Kansas SS Standard #4). They also provide content to help ensure students learn basic and higher-order skills, including problem solving and critical thinking (Missouri Learning Standards for the Social Studies).
The presentation is followed by the Kansas City Chinese Association (KCCA) Cultural Showcase and Stage Performance plus a VIP reception with food and drinks! Cost of the presentation, the Stage Performance and the VIP reception for twenty educators will be paid by KCTA in association with KCCA. Registration is on a first-come-first-served basis, so don’t delay. Email your name, your school, grade and subject(s) taught to Nancy Hope at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place, or contact her with any questions.
