This just came in to our office. It sounds like a lot of fun!
“Please see the attached document for information about a wonderful opportunity for a study tour in Turkey. The program is jointly sponsored by the World Affairs Council of St. Louis and the Turkish Cultural Foundation, which this year is opening the program to any teacher in Missouri, Arkansas, or Illinois. Those interested must attend a one-day seminar on Turkey in St. Louis on 8 March, and are then eligible to apply for the program. The seminar is free, includes food from St. Louis’ best Turkish restaurant, and perhaps music from a local Anatolian music group. The study tour runs for two weeks, with a cost to participants of just $900. If you are unable to participate in the study tour, please consider attending the one-day free workshop. Teachers from a variety of social studies disciplines, and others as well, are welcome.”
