2018 TEACHING EXCELLECE AND ACHIEVEMENT PROGRAM (TEA)
The Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program (TEA) is a program of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State, and implemented by IREX, a Washington, DC-based nonprofit organization. TEA will provide international secondary school teachers with unique opportunities to develop expertise in their subject areas, enhance their teaching skills, and increase their knowledge about the United States.
TEA consists of a six-week non-degree, non-credit customized academic program including academic seminars focusing on new teaching methodologies, curriculum development, lesson planning, teaching strategies, and instructional technology training. Intensive English language instruction will be offered to teachers who need additional practice. The program will also include a practicum of at least 40 hours with a U.S. partner teacher in a U.S. secondary school near the host university to actively engage participants in the U.S. classroom environment. Cultural enrichment, mentoring, and support will be provided to participants throughout the program.
3 grants are available for this six-week program in September - November 2018 (Cohort II): two grants for the field of English and the other for the fieild of science, math, and social studies. Successful Thai teachers will be placed in the cohort II of about 22 teachers at eight U.S. universities that are selected through a competitive process. The program will also include an internship at a U.S. secondary school to actively engage participants in the U.S. classroom environment.
