Introducing the Classic Chinese Novels and Historical Context in General Education: Background for Educators (Teacher Resources)

Asia for Educators, Weatherhead East Asian Institute, Columbia University, 2022 and beyond

Principal Investigator(s): Roberta Martin, Asia for Educators

Asia for Educators will create a series of recorded presentations and related professional development resources to expose secondary and non-specialist undergraduate-level teachers and their students to the Ming dynasty, and to introduce them to the narrative classics of Chinese literature. These presentations, given by experts in the field, will include background information on the period in which the work was written, a short biography of the author, and suggested excerpts to read in class.
