Teacher Professional Development

Teacher training programs provide K-12 teachers with the knowledge and resources to effectively teach about Japan in the classroom. These innovative programs on Japanese history, culture and current issues link K-12 educators with leading scholars and Japanese luminaries to increase mutual understanding and build future U.S.-Japan relations. Participating teachers are also eligible to receive state PD credit.
