China in the Curriculum was a one-day professional development program for junior high and high school teachers in the Greater New Haven area. Supported by the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations’ Public Intellectuals Program and the Yale-China Association, this event included three sessions on how to use visual materials, literature, and oral history to integrate the recent Chinese past into secondary school curriculum. Group discussions were held to brainstorm lesson plans, and the day culminated with a special visit with two colleagues from the University of Pittsburgh’s Cultural Revolution oral history project. We hope to offer similar programs in the future.
