Funder: Bureau Of Educational and Cultural Affairs
Due Date: December 22, 2017
Institutes for Secondary School Educators will provide three multinational groups of 20 experienced secondary school educators (including teachers, administrators, teacher trainers, curriculum developers, textbook writers, ministry of education officials, and others) with a deeper understanding of U.S. society, education, and culture – past and present. The focus of the Institutes will be on providing content and materials for participants to develop high school level curricula about the United States. The programs are organized around a central theme or themes in U.S. civilization. Through a combination of traditional, multi-disciplinary, and interdisciplinary approaches, program content will examine the history and evolution of U.S. institutions and values, broadly defined. The program will also serve to illuminate contemporary political, social, and economic debates in American society. One week study tours to a different region of the United States will complement the four week academic residencies at U.S. universities, colleges, or other academic institutions. The host institutions for the programs will be confirmed in April 2018.
