China, Identity and Multicultural America: Global Learning with a Cinematic Edge

Tuesday 3:00 Room B-2

Presenter Melissa Ludtke, Touching Home Publishing

Educators learn to partner mixed-media storytelling about contemporary China with lessons stressing students’ reflective exploration of core social studies themes related to global citizenship. Video and interactive graphics in “Touching Home in China: in search of missing girlhoods” (the project’s stories) appeal to digital native learners. Annotated resources, organized by subject matter and grade level, stimulate group discussions revolving around topics such as identity, racial and ethnic stereotyping, gender and China’s one-child policy.
