Since 2013, we have provided a two-day summer workshop on contemporary China for 6-12 grade teachers. We are happy to announce that the public will now be able to attend the “seminar” sessions of the workshop anywhere internet is available, via livestream.
Expect to find the following at our workshops:
- Relevant Themes: Each year we select a currently relevant and thought provoking theme on contemporary China that would be interesting and exciting to study in the classroom.
- Inspirational Speakers: We invite uniquely qualified China specialists with background and experience to present diverse but balanced viewpoints. These speakers come from both academic and non-academic worlds, including lawyers, business people, advocates, journalists, authors, and university professors — both U.S. and Chinese nationals. (See list of speakers and topics this year.)
- Most Current Information/thoughts about China today: Speakers are equipped to bring most current information and thoughts about today’s China.
What’s the difference between attending the workshop and the simulcast?
If you are a U.S. grades 6-12 teacher, you are invited to attend this workshop. Besides the benefits described above, you will have the opportunity to:
- Direct Interaction with Speakers: Teachers are encouraged to interact with the speakers during the lectures with discussions, Q&A, as well as during other networking times such as lunch. (We invite the speakers to join us for lunch and stay afterwards in case teachers need more clarification.)
- Suitable for Teaching: We ask the speakers to present their material in a manner that would be suitable for teaching grade 6-12 students.
- Assistance in Developing Lesson Material: UC Berkeley History & Social Science Project (UCBHSSP) members will lead/help teachers develop classroom material based on this year’s workshop lectures.
- Network and collaborate with fellow teachers.
- Additional Resource Materials: Speakers are asked to provide PowerPoint files to go with their lectures. These files can be downloadable from our website during and after the Workshop.
- Stipend: Upon completion of all workshop requirements, teachers can receive a stipend from $200-$400.
- CEUs: Teachers have the option of applying all or part of their stipend to receive 1.6 CEU units from San Francisco State University. (The CEU registration fee is $200.)
- Meals: Complimentary breakfast and lunch are provided both days.
