Information for Teachers
For the last decade the University of Pennsylvania with the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia has partnered with the US–Japan Foundation in the Phila-Nipponica Project, preparing educators in our area's schools to convey knowledge and understanding of Japan to their students and colleagues. We have prepared more than 130 teachers in the Phila-Nipponica project with seminars conducted by Penn faculty and a faculty-led study-tour of Japan.
International Summer Institute
Each summer, CEAS, in partnership with the three other National Resource Centers at Penn (South Asia, Middle East, Africa), offer a week-long teacher development seminar. Each year we choose a topic that is relevant to all of these regions and then provide teachers with the knowledge and tools to bring this topic into the classroom.
