STARTALK: Empowering Teachers for Change 2

Arabic, Chinese, Dari, Hindi, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, Swahili, Turkish, Urdu • July 8, 2013July 19, 2013Residential Program
  • Professional Development Center, Arlington, TX

Recognizing the need to strengthen foreign language teaching, especially in the area of critical languages, Arlington ISD proposes a two-part program for Summer 2013. The program will last two weeks, and the first week of the program will target teachers who have already participated in a STARTALK teacher program and particularly teachers who were a part of the AISD program Summer 2012. This time will be used to reinforce skills presented last year and to deepen participants understanding of STARTALK principles as explicated by the Teacher Effectiveness for Language Learning (TELL) document. In the afternoons, attention will be given to individual language groups, and experiences will be much more hands-on than in the previous year. In response to participant requests from last year's program, groups of students will be brought in for micro-teach experiences. 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. Time will be allotted for a micro-teach experience for these teachers, as well.
