AKI MATSURI WORKSHOP FOR K-12 TEACHERS
Bellevue, WA: September 6, 2014
Teachers in grades K-12 are invited to participate in a half-day workshop from 9:30 to 12:45 on Saturday, September 6th. Presented at the annual Aki Matsuri (Japanese Fall Festival) by the UW East Asia Resource Center, the workshop draws on festival themes and current issues to present new ideas for using material about Japan across the curriculum. The workshop brings teachers together to share creative ideas for teaching about Japan and to explore Japanese culture, past and present. After the workshop, participants can continue exploring the themes at the many festival booths and demonstrations. Previous participants are invited to return, as the topics of this fast-paced workshop change every year!
Participants receive materials, 3 free clock hours, and a Japanese box lunch. Follow the link to register with the EARC before September 1. You will receive a confirmation of registration once your $25 registration fee is received at the EARC.
The East Asia Resource Center presents this annual workshop with the Eastside Nihon Matsuri Association, the organization that brings Japanese culture to the campus of Bellevue College in Bellevue, Washington. The Aki Matsuri presents two days of demonstrations, speakers, and over 60 traditional and contemporary exhibits with something to interest everyone. General festival information can be found at enma.org.
The EARC will host a "Book Club" in Bellingham in late Fall 2014. Please sign up for email updates from EARC to receive the latest news about this event.
