The South Carolina Center for Teaching about Asia (SCCTA), headquartered at Furman University, is associated with the National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA) funded by the Freeman Foundation.
The purpose of SCCTA is to work with South Carolina school districts to enhance instruction on Asia throughout the curriculum, especially in world history, social studies, and geography courses. The faculty teams working with SCCTA seminars are drawn from among Asian specialists on various university campuses as well as master teachers who have demonstrated their effectiveness in middle and high school classrooms.
For the seventh year, Furman University will hold a residential SCCTA
graduate seminar on its campus in Greenville, SC from June 16-21, 2013.
SCCTA Director, Dr. Jim Leavell
