Educator Workshop: American Foreign Policy In Asia

Asia Society Texas Center says
The Obama administration made a notable decree to pivot its foreign policy focus to Asia in 2011. While analysts have not reached consensus about the policy’s implementation, the importance of China and India is an ongoing topic of discussion for American interests in the Asia-Pacific region. The US and China are arguably the world’s two superpowers, while India continues to augment its economic and military might. Moving further into the 21st century, what are the most pressing matters for policymakers on both sides of the Pacific? How will factors such as nuclear treaties, population growth, and the acquisition of industrial resources play a role in each country’s quest for regional hegemony?

We will seek to answer these questions and guide discussions centered around classroom applications in Asia Society Texas Center’s first workshop of the academic year. Lectures by experts in their respective fields will be supplemented by a packet including relevant lesson plans and ideas for sharing content with elementary, middle school, and high school students. All attendees are eligible for GT credit through the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented (TAGT).

A box lunch will be provided.
