Annually the Foreign Policy Association works to bring high school educators from across the U.S. to New York City to learn about current global affairs issues. We have a 3-day workshop in June designed to allow select high school Social Science and History teachers to find innovative ways to teach their students about current global issues. During the 3 days, teachers will attend a series of discussions with experts in various international fields, have sessions with Master Teachers to design curriculum around the issues they learned, and have a mock classroom session to teach current area high school students.
The program provides a $300 travel stipend, provides accommodations, and is a no-fee program that takes place from June 26-28, 2013.
This year the program will address the following issue areas:
-Chinese Interests in Africa
-The Dollar and the Euro
-Humanitarian Intervention and U.S. Policy
-Looking Ahead at NATO
-Political Evolution in Myanmar
-Three Decades of Complex U.S.-Iran Relations
-Uncertain Transitions in Egypt
We believe this will provide a unique opportunity for high school social science educators to learn about global affairs issues to teach to their students. Link to download the flyer and application
