Doors to the World: East Asia Summer Institute for Educators
Co-sponsored by the Five College Center for East Asian Studies and the Five College Doors to the World Project
July 9-14, Hampshire College, Amherst, MA

This summer institute studies diversity and representation in global children’s literature about and/or from China, Japan, and Korea. Participants will consider the histories and cultures of these nations to contextualize selected children’s books. They also will engage in dialogue with children’s book authors and illustrators, and children’s literature, culture, and pedagogy specialists to design multimodal learning experiences offering opportunities for children to engage with the themes, words, and images of the books. The institute will culminate with teacher-designed mini-units to support classroom inquiry.
PreK-grade 3 teachers, librarians and literacy coaches nationwide may apply. Grades 4-5 educators may be given consideration to the extent their application addresses how they use picture books in their grade level teaching. We welcome applications from educators who have previously participated in National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA) seminars, institutes, or other programs. Limited to 25 educators.
