Welcome to the Program for Teaching East Asia

The Program for Teaching East Asia (TEA) at the Center for Asian Studies conducts national, regional, and state projects designed to enhance and expand teaching and learning about East Asia at the elementary and secondary school levels. Specific projects focus on curriculum development, professional development for teachers, and curriculum consultation and reform related to Asia in K-12 education.

TEA staff includes research faculty with expertise in Asian studies and K-12 education, graduate research assistants, and an undergraduate intern staff. TEA is housed at the University of Colorado at Boulder's Center for Asian Studies. Program for Teaching East Asia projects are currently supported by generous grants from the Freeman Foundation, STARTALK, the Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership, the United States-Japan Foundation, and the Korea Foundation.
