Summer Study Tour to Japan, July 26-August 6, 2014

Dear NCTA Alumni,

The NCTA coordinating site at the University of Pittsburgh is teaming up with Global Exploration for Educators Organization (GEEO) to run a summer Study Tour to Japan July 26-August 6, 2014. This study tour is open to K-12 teachers, and NCTA alumni from across the USA are especially encouraged to apply. The tour, “NCTA Backroads of Japan,” will be led by Dr. David Kenley of Elizabethtown College, a popular leader of previous NCTA study tours. Dr. Kenley will be working in conjunction with a member of the GEEO team to give you content and context for the tour sites. On this study tour you may bring a “guest” (a colleague, a spouse/partner, an adult child over the age of 18).
Some of the highlights of the tour: a walking tour of Tokyo, and a visit to the Japanese Alps city of Nagano. The tour will spend time at the Jigokudani Monkey Park in Matsumoto, followed by a visit to the traditional alpine market town of Takayama. The tour will conclude with two nights in Kyoto, the cultural heart of Japan.

The cost of the trip, not including airfare, is $3,419.99 (there is a 5% discount to this price if you book before January 31st). You may want to check if your school or district will help to defray some of the costs of this study tour (the “Very Useful Information” tab of the GEEO website also lists some potential sources of alternate funding for teachers).
Space for this Study Tour is limited and applications will be accepted in order of receipt.
