Program Description

Executive Summary: ECA intends to award one cooperative agreement for up to $420,000 to fund a multi-phased exchange program that supports English Language teaching. Program design and implementation will involve three workshops to be presented to consecutive groups of competitively selected students participating in ECA-funded academic year high school exchange programs, the training and inclusion of former alumni as peer trainers starting with the previously funded spring 2015 workshop, and follow-on activities. The overarching workshop goal is to provide each participant the skills to actively engage and teach others upon their return home; therefore, alumni support and follow-on is in many ways the most important component in this program. Program development and planning should begin in September 2014 with the transparent and merit-based recruitment strategy to identify workshop alumni who will travel to the United States starting in the fi rst half of 2015 to participate in teaching at a series of U.S. workshops that will take place in the spring of 2016, 2017 and 2018. . The theme of the workshops will be the teaching of English as a foreign language. A similar award was made in FY12 for workshops taking place in 2013, 2014, and 2015. Alumni should undergo training and preparation for their participation through a virtual component. ECA will assist the FY14 award recipient in reaching out to workshop alumni and building on resources developed through the FY12 project.
