The remarkable richness and endurance of Chinese civilization will be the central focus for this online course, which will explore the long period from the emergence of China's earliest civilizations to the end of the dynastic phase in 1911. The course will mirror the thematic approach taken by Primary Source's own sourcebook, The Enduring Legacy of Ancient China. Topics will include geography, belief systems, the arts, and China's relationship with the world. The course will feature supplemental readings, scholar podcasts, and web-based activities to engage teachers in some of the most current scholarship, while exploring student-friendly tools and resources.
This course will be offered completely online and will require a basic comfort level and interest in the use of computer technology as a medium for learning. The time for completing each week's work is approximately 3-5 hours.
Open to all K-12 educators.
