As funding allows, TEA occasionally offers workshops specifically for Colorado K-12 educators during the school year. In addition, Colorado teachers are invited to register for any of TEA's online professional development courses offered through our funding as a National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA) National Coordinating Site or our other grant-funded programs. Please check our NCTA tab in our menu bar. 

In-person Workshop: Teaching Natural Sciences through East Asian Picture Books

In Fall 2023, TEA will offer an in-person workshop in collaboration with the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. This program is aimed at elementary and middle school teachers interested in integrating picture books into science and/or social studies instruction. The workshop will focus on the teaching of the natural sciences and the cultures of East Asia in Colorado classrooms. The five books featured address specific Colorado standards in life science, earth science, and social studies. By using these specific picture books that deliver the content with  accuracy, teachers will help students gain literacy and visual skills as they read and examine the materials.
