The Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program (TEA) is especially designed for teachers of English, Social Studies, Mathematics and Science teaching grades 6 to 12 at schools in India. In addition to teachers from India, TEA brings together teachers from Europe and Eurasia, East Asia and the Pacific, the Near East, South and Central Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, and the Western Hemisphere to the US for a six-week professional development program that further develops expertise in their subject areas, enhance their teaching skills, and increase their knowledge about the United States. TEA, a fully funded program consists of a non-degree, non-credit customized academic program including seminars on new teaching methodologies, curriculum development, lesson planning, and instructional technology. Participants will also participate in a practicum in a US secondary school near the host university to work closely with US teachers and teach and present to US students. Cultural enrichment, mentoring, and support will be provided throughout the program. The international participants will travel to the United States in two cohorts, one each in spring or fall.
Upon returning home, TEA program alumni are eligible to apply for small grants for essential teaching materials, follow-on training for other teachers, collaborative projects between schools in their home country and the United States, and other activities that build on their US experience.
The 2013 TEA competition is closed. USIEF may announce the next round of competition in October/November 2013.
