Teaching East Asia: In Memory of Arlene Kowal

Arlene Kowal was a valued FCCEAS NCTA consultant for twenty years. She was particularly passionate about geography education and using literature in the classroom. In addition to facilitating NCTA seminars in Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island, she was part of the team which developed the 2022 Buchanan Prize-winning Walking the Tōkaidō curriculum. 

In her memory, each NCTA teacher below gives a short presentation on teaching East Asia, followed by a Q&A session.
