  Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program (TEA)

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The non-Fulbright 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, brought together 178 international secondary school teachers to the United States to develop expertise in their subject areas, enhance their teaching skills, and increase their knowledge about the United States.

Up to six grants are available for this 6–week program in September-November. Successful Thai teachers will be placed in cohorts of about 22-24 teachers at eight U.S. universities that are selected through a competitive process. The program will consist of academic seminars focusing on new teaching methodologies, curriculum development, lesson planning, teaching strategies, and computer training. Intensive English language instruction will be offered to teachers who need it. The program will also include an internship at a U.S. secondary school to actively engage participants in the U.S. classroom environment. Cultural enrichment, mentoring, and support will be provided to participants throughout the program.
