36-hour professional development course for grade 6-12 educators in cooperation with the NYC Department of Education

After School Professional Development Program

From 1600-1900, Japan underwent an amazing transformation from a relatively isolated, fragmented land to a modern nation central to the development of world events, along the way producing some of the most important works of art and literature of the era. Regarding Japan from 1600-1900, teachers will know: 1) principle competing historical narratives; 2) why this period is essential to understanding early modern/modern global history; 3) important works of literature, theater, and visual arts; 4) how to incorporate this knowledge into existing global history, ELA, or art related classes.
