Introduction to NCTA

The National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA), funded by the Freeman Foundation, is a multi-year initiative to foster a permanent place for the teaching and study of East Asia at the middle and secondary school levels. The objectives of the program are accomplished through a lifelong approach to professional development: Teaching about Asia seminars, curriculum development, texts and resources, continuing education programs and study tours to East Asia.

Since 2004, The Ohio State University has collaborated with other colleges and universities around the state of Ohio to offer Teaching about Asia seminars in Akron, Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Marietta, Toledo and Wooster. These thirty-hour seminars have given the teachers who participated a strong background in Chinese, Japanese and Korean history and culture, which they have passed on to Ohio middle and high school students. The Ohio State University has also led program graduates on study tours to China, Japan and Korea, and maintains a bank of East Asia lesson plans created by program graduates.

The NCTA-Ohio seminars are coordinated by the East Asian Studies Center at The Ohio State University with the support of its NCTA national coordinating site, Indiana University. For further information on NCTA programs around the country, see www.nctasia.org.
