Summer Teacher Workshop on Persia to be held in Washington, DC

The World Affairs Councils of America is now accepting applications for a summer teacher workshop on Persia, July 8-11, 2008. The program is open to all high school educators and will focus on Persian culture, history and politics. We thank the Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian - Americans for their sponsorship of this workshop.

The WACA is pleased to announce a teacher workshop on Persia for July 8 - 11, 2008 in Washington, DC.  This exclusive workshop will offer 20 teachers the opportunity to meet with State Department officials, academics, and other Persian experts in an intimate setting to gain a comprehensive understanding of Persia's politics and culture.
The workshop will begin on the evening of July 8 and continue through lunch on July 11.  Thanks to a generous grant from the Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans (PAAIA), the only cost to the participants is the cost of their transportation to Washington, DC.

Teachers who participated in our two previous workshops on the European Union and Africa called the experience the best workshop they had attended.  The combination of the small group and setting in Washington, DC means that participants have an opportunity to engage with our experts and each other in a way that is not possible with larger groups.

You can also contact Melissa Lawrence, Education Director at if you have any questions.
