Vietnam Study Guide for K-12 Educators

Description:

Understanding Vietnam: Beyond the War provides resources for the K-12 classroom that are focused on modern Vietnam’s culture, arts, and history in a context that emphasized the country’s contemporary status as a dynamic Southeast Asian society rather than its bitter wartime past. These resources aim to: (1) teach participants about Vietnamese culture, environment, and educational systems, (2) develop a curriculum guide and multimedia material to assist in integrating international studies into the K-12 classroom, and 3) thereby developing critically-needed awareness of human diversity and strengthening cultural competencies of Michigan educators and students.

Audience:

K-12 teachers of Asian languages and cultures.

Partners:

The Asian Studies Center at Michigan State University (MSU), in collaboration with the MSU College of Education and LATTICE (Linking All Types of Teachers in International Cross-Cultural Education), with funding from a USDE Fulbright-Hays Group Project Abroad (GPA) Program Grant.
