National Consortium for Teaching about Asia

NCTA seminars serve more than 1,000 teachers yearly. Participants interact with East Asia specialists, receive extensive readings and other materials, and discuss effective strategies for bringing East Asia into their classrooms. Each seminar leader or team facilitates a seminar on East Asia that incorporates primary-source selections from the Chinese, Japanese, and Korean traditions. NCTA offers seminars in different delivery methods to accommodate the different needs, schedules and preferences of teachers. Seminars can be taken in a face-to-face setting, online, or in a blended format (face-to-face and digital used together). NCTA targets teachers of world history, world geography, other social studies courses, and language arts/world literature as the primary audience of its programs. Teachers of Asian languages, media specialists, librarians, and art teachers who play a key role in teaching Asian studies content also are eligible for NCTA programs. NCTA seeks to develop a community of inquiry among educators interested in East Asian studies that serves as a forum for collegial discussion of issues relevant to the teaching of East Asia.
