Chinese • Residential Program
  • June 15, 2015June 26, 2015: Program segment (face-to-face)
  • Confucius Institute at University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN

The goal of STARTALK Teaching and Assessing Chinese Culture and Language Authentically (TACCLA) is to improve participants’ ability to rethink their curriculum and instructional methods toward enhancing their students’ language proficiency levels while integrating elements of culture learning at the same time. This program will use the proficiency-oriented principles of language teaching, which are aligned with national standards. Participants will be able to better identify and enact the characteristics of culture in proficiency-based instruction, and the specific implications for curriculum, instruction and assessment for a U.S. classroom. This is a free residential program with limited travel allowance to offset the cost of transportation and limited tuition scholarship. Participants in this program will: --Explore theories and research about culture and culture learning --Create objectives for culture learning with particular reference to the national standards --Examine curricular models for integrating language and culture --Investigate techniques and materials for teaching culture --Explore traditional and alternative methods of assessing language and culture learning --Develop and apply criteria for evaluating cultural content of teaching materials --Create authentic teaching materials that has the potential to achieve proficiency through culture as core content --Share newly created lesson plans during their practicum experience

Heritage Language Teacher Workshop: Materials Development

  • June 28, 2015July 2, 2015: Program segment (face-to-face)
  • UCLA Center for World Languages/NHLRC, Los Angeles, CA

In spite of the large number of Heritage Language Learners (HLL) in K-16 classrooms, language instructors in the U.S. are not prepared to teach them and few methodologies, curricula, or materials for teaching HLLs are available. This challenge is compounded in all STARTALK languages because they are less commonly taught and the teachers are often required to create their own materials. This teacher workshop is designed to help language teachers learn how to develop suitable materials for their students by focusing on instructional materials that answer the needs of HLLs. The workshop will be designed to impart the principles and methods of HL materials development. The workshop also aims to create a cohort of language teachers who will be leaders and mentors in the field of HL instruction. We hope that teachers who participate in the workshop will commit to re-teaching “lessons learned” at their institution or in their region when they return home. The instructors are Dr. Olga Kagan, UCLA ,and Dr. Maria Carreira, CSULB.
