This free workshop will be led by Dr. Brian Dowdle, Associate Professor of Japanese at the University of Montana. It will be held in tandem with the Academic WorldQuest program, which has a focus on Japan in this year’s module. During this workshop teachers will discuss how to educate students on diversity and make interdisciplinary connections when teaching global perspectives. Lectures will detail the development of the The Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center, how to engage youth through Japanese popular culture into global issues, and a discussion of how to foster foreign language education. The workshop will also introduce teaching ideas and activities to help students explore historical connections between Japan and Montana. The Workshop is sponsored by the The Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center and Montana World Affairs Council at the University of Montana, and the East Asia Resource Center at the University of Washington.
