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 projects are currently supported by a generous grant from the Freeman Foundation and a grant from CU's Office of Outreach and Engagement.

The Program for Teaching East Asia is conducted under the auspices of the University of Colorado Boulder Center for Asian Studies. Our Center's statements on Institutional Racism in the US and the University of Colorado Campus Land Use may be found at https://www.colorado.edu/cas/center-asian-studies-statements.

New Resource!

Observe Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Awareness Month 2021 with Resources and Strategies for Teaching about Asian America and Responding to Anti-Asian Racism. May is Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Educators have a critical role to play in teaching about Asian America and, now more than ever, educating to combat anti-Asian racism and all forms of racism.  NCTA at TEA offers educators a selective "toolkit" to address these goals during May 2021 and beyond.
