How are China’s relations with countries across Asia - and beyond - evolving?  We'll explore China's initiatives to build infrastructure and influence, promote its culture, and influence overseas Chinese.  How are other countries viewing China’s efforts, and how are they responding?  We will explore present policy, but also take a historical lens to topics such as the relationship between India and China, and consider how history affects how we see the present. Our focus will be how China is asserting a new direction and sense of leadership -- both through its policies and its people.

Especially for educators of grades 6-12.
