Newberry Teachers' Consortium

We often hear that China enjoys a rich history spanning 5000 continuous years, but how much change was paired with that continuity? During the seventh to ninth centuries, China came under significant Turkic influence. During the 14th century it was part of the Mongol empire. Finally, during the Qing dynasty it was ruled by foreign conquerors from Manchuria. Furthermore, imperial China was host to a variety of different religious traditions introduced at various times. In this seminar participants will learn about the distinctive features of the major dynasties with an eye to preparing students for the AP World History exam.
