Virtual Event: Ties that Bind Workshop
Mia is pleased to partner with the National Consortium for Teaching About Asia to offer this workshop: Ties That Bond: Connecting the U.S. and East Asia. The “Ties That Bind” project is a teacher-researched project documenting connections between East Asia and the United States. These
ties began with whalers and traders in the colonial era and continue today. In this workshop, learn from classroom teachers about early ties in the greater Boston area and more contemporary ties beyond before moving on to explore some Minnesota ties. Learn how to research your own topics to enhance your curriculum, and how to add your discoveries to the project. The workshop will also include an introduction to learning resources related to Asian art and culture at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Dr. Anne Prescott of the Five College Center for East Asian Studies and NCTA Director will lead this workshop.
