about

Globalization, migration, transnational movements and the development of the tiger economies of Asia have led education leaders and policy makers around the world but particularly in Australia, the USA, Canada, and New Zealand to view schools as key sites for developing 'globally competent', 'Asia literate' citizens who have the capabilities to live, work and interact with the peoples, cultures and societies of Asia. In what has been dubbed the 'Asian Century', nations are increasingly seeking to transform their schooling policies, curricula, and teaching workforces to engage with the growing influence of the peoples, cultures and societies both within and beyond Asia.

This is the first book to subject to critical scrutiny and analysis the concepts, policies and practices of schooling involved in building intercultural relations with the diverse contemporary manifestations of 'Asia'. It brings into dialogue scholars who are at the forefront of current thinking, policy and practice on Asia-related schooling, and contributes to a broader, international debate about the future shape of intercultural schooling in a global world.Asia Literate Schooling in the Asian Centuryoffers chapters on:

' Learning Asia: In search of a new narrative

' Asia Literacy as Experiential Learning

' Professional Standards and Ethics in Teaching Asia Literacy

' The Feasibility of Implementing Cross-Curricular Studies of Asia

' Deparochialising Education and the Asian Priority: A Curriculum (Re)Imagination

This book will appeal to scholars and practitioners in Education, and is suitable as a reference for teacher education courses. It will also interest scholars specialising in Asian Studies.

Christine Halse is Professor and Chair of Education at Deakin University, Australia.

Editorial Reviews

¿As a whole the collection does interesting work to define Asia literacy and to map why we should consider it important... I finished reading the collection with a much deeper understanding of how the term Asia literacy is used, why and to what effect.¿ ¿ Annette Woods, Teaching Education, February 2016
