Host teachers needed.

Middle-High School Geography Teachers Needed to Host Visiting Teachers from Germany Folks, First, thanks for helping me in placing the German Fulbright teachers in schools around the country during the week of April 12. Let me explain what is needed and why. The teachers are sponsored by a Fulbright grant and have been selected by the German Fulbright Commission. This program has been in effect for a number of years in a variety of forms. Having worked with prior groups of German teacher, I can attest to the fact that they are intelligent, hardworking and have fine senses of humor. This year 20-24 teachers will spend two weeks with us at Penn State focusing on American school issues and visiting urban, rural and suburban schools.   Then they will travel to the various school sites to spend two days in a school where they can meet with teachers, students and administrators, as well as observe daily school life. They will then move to another school within a couple hundred miles to replicate the process. All of these teachers hope to establish a relationship between their schools and the schools which they visit, one that will be able to lead to further teacher exchanges and, possibly student visits. Thus, any school selected must have a course of courses with some European focus such as German language, World Languages, World History, World Cultures and a willingness to explore exchange possibilities.  Accepting a teacher is NOT a commitment to such exchanges, but, rather, a willingness to consider such exchanges. Exchanges might be done electronically such as reading  the same book and discussing it...
