More wonderful educational travel and funded opportunities!

1. Full-time middle school and high school teachers (with at least 3 years of teaching experience): The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has a FUNDED week-long summer program (July 13-18) as part of their Bridging Cultures Initiative. U.S. teachers will get the chance to interact with foreign teachers from 20 different countries in order to enhance your ability to infuse your curriculum with multicultural perspectives. The program, accommodations, and some meals are provided, as well as a small stipend and some travel costs, if necessary. But space is limited. To find out more and to apply, go to:

2. Secondary teachers: The program for Teaching East Asia at the University of Colorado is accepting applications on a rolling basis to their summer program "Korea's Journey into the 21st Century: Historical Contexts, Contemporary Issues." It's July 13-17 in Boulder, Colorado. Participants will receive a travel allowance, room and board, materials, and a stipend. for more information - and to apply - go to: 

3.  Primary Source is a good non-profit organization, so I wanted to tell you about this opportunity: "Turning Points in Latin American History and Culture: From Colonialization to the Cold War." It's an online course, running from July 8-August 4. Teachers get 22.5 PD hours. The cost is $225. You could also get 1 graduate credit if you pay an additional fee. For more information, go to:
4. The Dar Al Islam Teachers' Institute is held in a beautiful area of rural New Mexico. This year it will be July 21-Aug. 1. It is well-done, education focused program which helps teachers teach about Islam  more effectively. IT is FREE except for transportation to Albuquerque. Housing, meals, materials, programs, and transportation to and from the Albuquerque airport are all provided. It's not a competitive application - more of a first-come, first-served process, but priority is given, of course, to people who apply early. We hear that they sometimes take preservice teachers too.
