Congratulations to our Phila-Nipponica Teachers!
The Center for East Asian Studies is pleased to announce the group of 12 teachers selected to participate in the Phila-Nipponica program for 2013. This cohort has successfully completed a series of preparatory seminars, and will travel to Japan from June 25 – July 12, 2013, for a 17-day study tour. The program will conclude with curriculum workshops in the fall.
Phila-Nipponica is intended to educate “beginners” about Japan, offering a broad base of history and culture in preparation for a study-tour of Japan, with a focus on: Recovering Japan: Preparing Philadelphia Area Educators to Teach about Japan as It Responds to the Disasters of 2011.
The University of Pennsylvania Center for East Asian Studies is pleased to offer the Phila-Nipponica Project, the 13th year in a series that has helped nearly two hundred Philadelphia-area educators enhance their classroom teaching about Japan through seminars, a summer study-tour, and curriculum development workshops.
