Teaching the Mongols

The East Asia Resource center and the Center for Global Studies of the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies were proud to present “Teaching the Mongols”.


Teachers explored the rise and fall of the Mongol empire in both regional (East Asian) and global contexts with an emphasis on pedagogical approaches for the middle and high school classroom. This workshop made participants more familiar with history, culture and significance of the Mongol Empire in the development of East Asia. Beyond content, participants discussed and practiced pedagogical strategies for working this knowledge into their courses.

This 15 hour workshop took place over two days during which participants studied essential aspects of the Mongol empire and its history in the morning under the direction of an East Asian scholar. In the afternoon, participants worked on pedagogical issues. Outside of class, participants were responsible for readings, investigating online resources and the preparation of a unit plan for classroom use.
