  • June 2, 2014June 13, 2014: Option 2: development of workshops and training to replicate workshops (face-to-face)
  • June 9, 2014June 13, 2014: Option 1: participation in demo workshops as well as training to replicate workshops (face-to-face)

Focused on teacher empowerment, participants will not only refine their own practices but also learn to develop professional development materials that can be shared and disseminated in their school, district, or region. There are two options for participation to meet the varied needs of teacher leaders. Option 1: designed for teachers to improve their practice through participation in a series of mini-workshops on high-yield teaching strategies. Possible replication materials and strategies will be shared as well. Option 2: designed for experienced teacher leaders with previous STARTALK experiences or STARTALK instructional leads. This experience will allow participants to work with national leaders such as Greg Duncan and Helena Curtain to develop and capture demo lessons or video exemplars of high-yield teaching strategies that would support their professional development presentations as well as practice sessions as part of the program. Serving as a teacher leader-training program, participants from other STARTALK programs will be able to immediately implement their learning in their own program. *Partial-travel assistance may be available for accepted participants.

In the afternoons, attention will be given to individual language groups, and experiences will be much more hands-on than in the previous year.

The second week will target teachers who have not yet attended a STARTALK teacher program. It will be organized around STARTALK principles as explicated by the TELL framework and will primarily address standards-based instruction, comprehensible input, and checking for understanding.
