Please join us on February 13th for Angela Singer’s presentation on her study tour of China this past summer. She spent two weeks studying at Zhejiang University with the University of Pittsburgh Chapter of the National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA) followed by another two weeks traveling through China on her own.
NCTA is a university collaborative funded by the Freeman Foundation that provides professional development on East Asia to teachers. The organization’s goal is to encourage and facilitate teaching and learning about East Asia in elementary and secondary schools.
Ms. Singer will discuss economic changes in China’s cities and the new capitalism in China, as well as showing a number of slides from her trip. Those who attended her presentation on Japan last year will recall that Ms. Singer is a keen and insightful observer with a knack for taking vivid, story-telling photographs. She is an English teacher and Department Chair at Melrose High School (go Red Raiders!).
The meeting is on Wednesday, February 13, 2013, at 7PM at the First United Methodist Church, 645 Main Street, in Melrose, MA 02176.
