The Asia Centers and the Center for Global Studies of the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington are proud to present Exploring Asia: Asian Cities - Growth and Change, its 2014 Newspapers In Education Series and Workshop. The five-part series, in conjunction with The Seattle Times, includes articles on Vietnam, China, India, and Central Asia, in addition to an overview article. The workshop will include presentations by series authors as well as an introduction to the curriculum guide that pairs with the articles.

This workshop is one aspect of a collaborative project between the Newspapers In Education program of The Seattle Times and the University of Washington Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies Asia and Global Studies outreach centers as well as the East Asia Resource Center. The project consists of a five-article series, a teaching guide, and this workshop for K-12 educators.

Designed with high school readers in mind, each article in the online newspaper series entitled Exploring Asia: Asian Cities - Growth and Change, focuses on cities of Asia. The teaching guide provides a lesson plan for each article that includes activities to do with students before, during, and after reading the featured article. Together, the articles and accompanying lessons take students on an exploration of contemporary urban issues in several Asian countries, asking students to look at the issues from multiple perspectives and investigate the complexities and challenges of Asia's rapidly growing cities.

The cost of registration for the workshop is $30.00, which includes three Washington State clock hours, dinner, and curriculum guide. To register for the workshop, please complete the online registration form at
