Application deadline: June 23, 2006 (extended deadline)
Do you teach in the Inland Empire? Simi Valley? Santa Clarita? Antelope Valley? San Diego or Imperial Counties? Santa Barbara or Ventura Counties? Kern or San Luis Obispo Counties? Have you wanted to participate in a UCLA seminar but simply couldn’t manage the commute?
Thanks to funding from the Freeman Foundation and the U.S. Department of Education, the UCLA Asia Institute is offering a residential seminar for secondary social studies and language arts teachers. Those selected for the program will receive free hotel accommodations (double occupancy, adjacent to the campus) during the seminar. (Housing is provided July 31-August 4 and August 7-August 10. Does not include the weekend break.)
Interested in adding more about East Asia to your curriculum? Wish you had taken East Asia-related courses in history, literature, politics, and geography in college? Eager to learn about effective teaching strategies and materials? Willing to invest some time this summer getting up to speed?
Home to a third of the world's people, some of the oldest and most complex civilizations, and several of the largest and most dynamic economies, East Asia has long interested Americans. This seminar will help you teach your students about East Asia and help them develop vital analytical and communication skills.
Priority in enrollment will be given to world history and language arts teachers, though others may apply. The seminar will be held in 10383 Bunche Hall on the UCLA campus. Teachers will be provided with hotel accommodations a short walk from the campus.
The seminar aids teachers in addressing the California history, social studies, and language arts standards. Participants will study the history and culture of the region, as well as discuss how East Asian case studies can be used to explore a variety of issues (e.g., state and religion, economic development, population trends, democratization).
Participating teachers will also learn how to use the internet to conduct research and to present information to their students and how to design lessons and units that require students to use the internet to gather information, to collaborate with others to evaluate and synthesize this data, and to share their conclusions. By the end of the program, participating teachers will have developed lesson websites and East Asia-focused and web-based units to use with their students.
In addition to becoming better able to bring Asia to their students, participants also earn:
Teachers completing seminar requirements are eligible to receive four UCLA Extension quarter units (optional, requires payment of UCLA Extension fee).
