When teaching about a complex continent like Asia with several regions, it can be difficult to know what to focus on. Do you focus on specific region in Asia? Culture? Current Events? History? Since you typically do not have all year to focus on one part of the world, choosing a few topics to highlight is important.
Asia Society has current videos and articles about events happening throughout Asia. You can search by region and country including the Middle East. To help teachers Asia Society also has a Center for Global Education where you can find information on Global Competence, Project Based Learning, and Mapping the Nation which includes resources that help us to understand that the United States is a global nation.
Need to know more information about Women in Southeast Asia, Japanese New Year or Chusok: The Korean Thanksgiving? Asia Society has a section for Background Reading on Asia where you can find dozens of articles on topics related to countries in Asia.
