APARC faculty and researchers serve as principal investigators and content advisers for SPICE’s Asia-studies curriculum units.
Curricula we helped develop include Korea-related teaching resources on topics such as South Korea’s economic development, inter-Korean relations, and U.S.-South Korean relations; lessons on U.S.-Japan relations and on China’s economic development; and Divided Memories, a unit based on APARC’s research project and its resulting publications that compare how prevalent history textbooks from five Pacific Rim societies cover sensitive historical episodes of the twentieth century, and probing into what happens when our interpretations of history differ. For more details view SPICE's catalog.
Our faculty and researchers teach Asia-Pacific topics through SPICE video lectures and distance-learning programs designed for American and Asian high school students. Participants are offered opportunities to engage in learning experiences at Stanford.
APARC co-sponsors and contributes content to SPICE teacher-training conferences and workshops that help educators incorporate contemporary Asia issues into their curricula.
