Other Opportunities for Participants
Below you will find several funding and professional development opportunities for teachers interested in lesson study.
The Mathematics Education Trust (MET) at www.nctm.org/about/met/ supports the improvement of mathematics teaching and learning through the funding of grants, awards, and other projects by channeling the generosity of individuals and corporations into teacher-initiated efforts that benefit all children. MET provides funds to support classroom teachers in the areas of improving classroom practices and increasing teachers' mathematical knowledge.
The Fulbright Memorial Fund Teacher Program (FMF)
at http://www.iie.org/ is a unique
opportunity for United States primary and secondary school teachers
and administrators to participate in a fully funded three-week study
visit to Japan. The FMF program, a program sponsored by the Government
of Japan since 1997, has, to date, enabled 3,100 educators to travel
to Japan and study the Japanese culture and educational system. This
year, 600 more American educators will be selected to participate in
the FMF program. In addition to overall professional qualifications,
a primary factor in selecting award recipients is the teacher's ability
to share his or her experiences with students and colleagues upon returning
to the U.S.
