Arabic, Chinese, Portuguese, Russian
  • 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)
  • Memphis, TN

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.

The 2011 STARTALK North Carolina Student Summer Institute in Russian will be a two-week, residentia- immersion Russian Language and Culture Program offered July 18 - July 31, 2011, at Appalachian State University (ASU), in Boone, North Carolina (NC).

It is important to bring these students from across the state together in one place and create an immersion environment where they can bond socially, learn more Russian, and put their language skills to use. The theme of the Institute is Discover the World of Russian Fairy Tales. In-class and out-of-class activities will center around this theme and connect it with the art and music of Russian culture. Also, this summer institute will offer an intermediate level of Russian for heritage speakers, because this is the largest population of students currently enrolled in the online Russian program in North Carolina. By offering this level in an immersion environment on campus, we can accommodate students who have taken Russian online and further develop their oral and written skills.

  • 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.
