2009 Hawaii Chinese Language Teacher Training Institute

Honolulu, HI • Chinese • July 1, 2009 July 24, 2009Residential Session

Fifteen in- or pre-service Chinese language teachers will work with five highly experienced lead instructors to focus on the principles and practice of standards- and task-based, learner-centered instruction in Chinese. We will begin with a three-day immersion session on principles. However, the heart of the institute will constitute of three weeks of beginning and intermediate level instruction for 30 high school learners of Chinese. During the first week, the lead instructors will demonstrate a range of experimental and effective teaching approaches, using an exciting and brand-new suite of materials in draft format (Encounters: Global Chinese Language And Culture from Yale University Press and the China International Publishing Group). In the second week, lead instructors will work with teacher-trainees to design and teach task-based, learner-centered modules in each of the four skills. And in the third week, teacher-trainees will teach by themselves, with much support from all other Institute participants. Introspection, reflection, constructive feedback, and experimentation are highly encouraged.

STARTALK University of Hawaii Chinese Language Teacher Training Institute

Chinese • June 29, 2010 July 24, 2010Residential Program
  • University of Hawaii at Manoa, Honolulu, HI

STARTALK-Hawaii will recruit 20 talented preservice and inservice teachers of Chinese to spend 24 days in Honolulu, HI, immersed in a program to change how they teach Chinese to secondary school learners. The STARTALK-Hawaii Teacher Training Institute will run concurrently with the STARTALK-Hawaii Chinese Language Sports Camp for 28 students, ages 12 to 17, led by three highly experienced master teachers of Chinese language. For the first three days of the Institute, teacher trainees will be immersed in theory, through live lectures, videotaped presentations, demonstration classes, experiential classes that they take themselves, and feedback sessions. Following that, the Sports Camp will begin, and for the first week, trainees will watch and analyze model lessons taught by the lead instructors. They may participate in teaching sample lessons if they choose. Beginning the second week, they will be expected to teach lessons themselves, and by the end of the camp, each trainee will have the opportunity to teach at least twice, if not multiple times, both to their colleagues in test-runs, and to the students (with all their colleagues watching and helping). All lessons are followed by critique and feedback sessions. Some will be videotaped.

STARTALK-CI Hawaii Chinese Teacher Training Institute

Chinese • June 30, 2011July 23, 2011Residential Program
  • University of Hawaii at Manoa, Honolulu, HI

This 3.5 week residential institute is held concurrently with a student camp. Participants will discuss principles, observe innovative lead teachers instructing at the camp, and participate in friendly feedback sessions focused on the degree to which principles have been implemented. During the feedback sessions, suggestions for improvement are solicited. Beginning with the second week of the camp, perhaps even earlier, participants are expected to take over teaching responsibilities in teams, to implement some of the approaches discussed in a supportive environment. Evening activities include cultural events, lesson planning, student tutorials, and bonding excursions for the teachers. There is heavy use of media in the institute. For video of previous camps, see <http://confuciusinstitutehawaii.org/programs/summer-programs/media/>.

STARTALK-CI Hawaii Chinese Teacher Training Institute

Chinese • July 5, 2012July 27, 2012Residential Program
  • University of Hawaii at Manoa, Honolulu, HI

The Hawaii Chinese Teacher Training Institute combines major support from STARTALK with supplemental support from the Confucius Institute at the University of Hawaii. A team of four experienced, innovative lead instructors, nationally recruited within the US, will work with 12 teacher trainees, both pre- and inservice, from all across the U.S. and Hawaii. Four faculty from the Confucius Institute will provide support, and additional self-funded international instructors may participate as well. The Teacher Institute begins 3 days before and then runs concurrently with the STARTALK-CI Chinese Language Camp, a residential program for 28 US students learning Chinese. Presentations, discussions, model classes, hands-on teaching modules and reflection sessions will allow teacher trainees to gain familiarity and confidence with all aspects of teaching and learning for the information age. We will focus on instructional techniques that promote communication, task-completion, problem solving, critical thinking, confidence to seek out, assess, and organize information as necessary, and insight into Chinese as well as US culture. The Institute will also take full advantage of Hawaii's glorious environment through a structured series of weekend "language-learning" excursions to the historic Honolulu Chinatown, hiking on Diamond Head, Bellows Beach, a guided exploration of Pearl Harbor, and more.

STARTALK-CI Hawaii Chinese Teacher Training Institute

Chinese • July 2, 2013July 26, 2013Residential Program
  • Hawaii STARTALK Chinese Teacher Institute, Honolulu, HI

Fifteen Chinese language teachers (either experienced or new to the field) who are interested in observing and teaching according to standards-, performance-, and task-based principles, as well as TPRS (“Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling”), are selected to participate in the institute and concurrent student camp. A five-day preparation workshop is the lead-off to introduce participants to the principles of a standards-based curriculum, as well as to available resources to teach following such a curriculum. Once the concurrent student camp begins, teachers observe and participate in all scheduled activities, as the institute’s lead instructors demonstrate a variety of teaching approaches. All instruction is followed by critique and friendly feedback. After the first week of instruction, institute participants are invited to teach selected modules together with or in place of the lead instructors. By the last week of the Institute, participants are in charge of all instruction—lead instructors serve as guides and consultants. Daily summative feedback sessions allow for on-going reflection. Goals: Participating teachers will be able to articulate the basic principles of standards-based instruction, as well as demonstrate the implementation of this approach in their teaching.
