Participants joined EARC program leader Tese Wintz Neighbor and Seattle World Affairs Council Global Classroom Director Ryan Hauck for a Book Club focusing on issues facing Tibet today. Teachers grappled together with the complex issues of economic gain vs. cultural loss, the Dalai Lama’s teachings on non-violence vs. self-immolations, education reform vs. watering of language and culture, Xi Jinping’s political tightening, etc.
This program was co-sponsored by the East Asia Resource Center at the University of Washington and the Seattle World Affairs Council Global Classroom, and funded by a Freeman Foundation grant in support of the National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA). It was open and free to current K-12 in-service, current teachers of all grades and subjects.
