ABOUT THE EARC
The East Asia Resource Center (EARC) provides a wide range of outreach programming and services to K-12 educators nationwide. The EARC helps educators expand and update their knowledge of China, Japan, and Korea; recommends effective resources and strategies for teaching about East Asia; and develops quality curriculum materials.
EARC offerings for K-12 educators include workshops, seminars, summer institutes, a resource collection, and a quarterly newsletter. EARC programming strives to bring the expertise of UW faculty and K-12 master teachers in Asian studies to its audiences of educators across the Northwest. EARC activities are supported by grants from the Freeman Foundation, the US Department of Education, and other foundations.
The East Asia Resource Center works in partnership with the University of Washington's East Asia Center, a federally funded and designated National Resource Center. The East Asia Center serves as a comprehensive center to advance the knowledge of China, Japan, and Korea through undergraduate, graduate, and professional instructional programs, faculty research, the East Asia Library, as well as programs and events for the larger community.
