The Silk Road: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Teaching about East Asia—Feb 6 through May 30
Take Our Silk Road Course This Spring!
This spring AFE is again pleased to offer our popular Silk Road course! The 36 credit hours earned in the course will allow qualifying educators to apply for a summer study tour in 2014 or teachers in New York City may register through the NYC After School Professional Development Program for 36 hours of credit from ASPDP.
The "Silk Road" refers to a series of routes that crisscrossed Eurasia from the first millennium BCE through the middle of the second millennium CE. Music, art, technology, belief systems, and stories were carried along this ancient trade route. This course will knit literature, geography, economics, history, art, and music into an interdisciplinary exploration of Asia’s diversity and interdependence.
15 Weeks & Postings: Weekly asynchronous sessions with three postings due per week - one each on content, pedagogy, and response to others' postings.
Faculty: Karen Kane, Columbia University and experts on nomadic cultures, art, and music.
Info on Enrollment and Credit: All are welcome to take the register and take course! Educators in the NCTA states AFE serves (see our webpages) earn 36 professional development hours with course completion and meet the required credits to apply for a study tour in summer 2014. Arrangements for others to receive professional development hours may be arranged. Also, educators in New York City may opt to instead register through the NYC After School Professional Development Program to earn 36 hours of credit from ASPDP.
Deadline for Registration and Enrollment: February 20th
