Asian Studies Outreach Program
Hosting a Visiting Scholar
If your school is interested in hosting a teacher or intern, please contact Bill Williams for more information at William.H.Williams@uvm.edu.
We will need to know about host schools by mid-April in order to complete the complicated invitation process.
To assist Vermont schools in teaching about Asia, ASOP directly invites visiting teachers from China and Thailand and interns from Japan. They teach various aspects of their cultures to Vermont students.
Teachers from China and Thailand visit Vermont for six months. Japanese nationals visit Vermont for various lengths. Receiving schools are responsible for assigning mentor teachers; making arrangements for teaching, local transportation, and activities for the visitors to experience American culture; identifying host families, and covering the cost of lunch. Host families are responsible for housing, food, and, depending on the local arrangements, transportation. All requests for having visiting teachers must be submitted in writing to ASOP Office eight months prior to the arrival of the teachers.
Workshops & Conferences
Each Year ASOP hosts several workshops and conferences throughout the state of Vermont. The workshops will be announced via listserv, in our e-newsletter, and also on our News & Events page. Please check back often.
The ASOP curriculum library has an increasing number of books, CD ROMs, videotapes, handicrafts, and photos of China, Japan, Thailand and other Asian countries. The library is open to school professionals only. To schedule a visit, or for an after-school visit, contact Jacqueline at (802) 656-7985.
