Providing K-12 educators with opportunities to deepen their knowledge of East Asia since 1971

As part of the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies and as a co-founder of the National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA), the East Asia Resource Center brings the expertise of university and college faculty and master teachers to K-12 educators across the U.S., but primarily in the Pacific Northwest.

    College Organizations

Through grant funding, the EARC provides a wide range of professional development programs on China, Japan, and Korea, including:

  • National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA) professional development seminars in Washington, as well as Alaska, Idaho, Montana and Oregon;
  • weeklong intensive residential summer institutes held on the University of Washington campus in Seattle that are open to teachers nationwide;
  • other events such as book clubs, writing groups and one day workshops on East Asian art, literature, music and history.

These programs are designed to help educators expand and update their own knowledge of East Asia. They also recommend effective resources and teaching strategies for the classroom. Some are geared specifically to the needs of elementary, middle or high school teachers, while others are intended for teachers of all levels who want to gain a deeper understanding of the subject matter. EARC programs invite teachers of history, social studies, geography, language arts (ELA), art, music and world languages (Chinese, Japanese, Korean), as well as school librarians and curriculum specialists.
