2008-2009 Courses: A World of Learning
At the start of Primary Source's 20th year of programs, a wealth of opportunities is available for schools looking to expand students' perspectives on world history and culture. From introductory one-day workshops to in-depth five-day seminar series, all of our courses are designed to provide educators of every subject area and grade level with the background knowledge and teaching strategies they need to successfully integrate global content into the curriculum. Participating teachers also have the opportunity to earn professional development points and/or graduate credits.
This year's course offerings include a look at conflict and resolution in the Middle East, an introduction to Latin America, and an exploration of Indian culture through the arts.
One of Primary Source's newest courses will be Modern Topics in Asia, an afternoon series featuring a look at the future of India and China with Harvard professor and author Tarun Khanna (Billions of Entrepreneurs), an examination of the Cambodian genocide with filmmaker Socheata Poeuv, a discussion about modern Tibet, and an exploration of China's new generation of global artists. Educators are welcome to register for the entire series or for individual sessions.
