    Teaching Modern China | June 2024 Workshop

    Arkansas NCTA presents "Teaching Modern China: A Century of Revolution," an in-person workshop for teachers of grades 5 - 12 taking place on June 14. This workshop engages educators with the major events, themes, and ideas that defined twentieth century China. Register here!

    China’s modern transformation from enfeebled empire to global economic superpower is among the most significant historical developments of the last century. This workshop provides Grade 5 - 12 teachers with an overview of the major events, themes, and ideas from China’s tumultuous twentieth century as well as a guide to its present political moment. Along the way, we will explore rich classroom resources—from the radical literature and glamorous advertisements of China’s Republican period, to the propaganda posters and poignant memoirs of China’s communist revolution under Mao Zedong, to the policies of (and protests against) China's current authoritarian government.
