Toyota is inviting high school teachers from Alabama, California, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Texas, West Virginia–and for the first time–New York and Washington, D.C. to apply for an “ultimate” field trip to Japan-and an all-expenses-paid educational study made possible through the Toyota International Teacher Program. During a rigorous, two-week stay, 60 teachers will visit six cities from Tokyo to Hiroshima to learn about Japan’s past and present and explore key global issues. The program takes place June 16 through July 3, 2005. Teachers are selected based on their professional and leadership qualifications, as well as their plans to incorporate their experiences and research into their curriculum. Teachers in all subject areas are invited to participate. The Institute of International Education in Washington, D.C., the nation’s largest nonprofit educational exchange organization, administers the program.
