Increasing Engagement through Storytelling, Scenario-Based Learning and Gamification: a STARTALK Program for Teachers of Russian

Russian
  • June 1, 2015June 30, 2015: Program segment (face-to-face)
  • Virtual, Chicago, IL

During our proposed program “Increasing Engagement through Storytelling, Scenario-Based Learning and Gamification: a STARTALK Program for Teachers of Russian,” we plan to train teachers of Russian on how to increase engagement in blended and distance learning classrooms through the use of storytelling, scenario-based learning and gamification. As a result of their training, we will develop a fully functioning online course on the Russian Folklore based on the materials developed by the teachers. We will also use this course during our Fall 2015 semester in real classrooms to conduct research on learner engagement in blended and online environments. As a result of this research, we will shed light onto the complex construct of learner engagement in a foreign language classroom, and analyze its relationship with storytelling, scenario-based learning and gamification. This research will provide insight into the nature of learner engagement- a concept that is very important in language learning and especially in LCTL learning, and will highlight practical suggestions for teachers. The findings can be used by other STARTALK language programs to increase engagement in their classrooms. We are planning on recruiting 10 teachers for this project and provide them with CEU credits for their training.

Fauquier County Language Explore

Nokesville, VA • Turkish • July 6, 2009 July 21, 2009
Nokesville, VA • Arabic • July 6, 2009 July 21, 2009

The Fauquier County Language Explore program is an introduction to the Turkish and Arabic languages and cultures. The goal of our program is to expose rising 5th- through 8th-grade students to less commonly taught languages and cultures. Students will choose one of the languages to focus their studies as the two programs will run at the same time. We hope to build a foundation for further study and inspire students to want to learn more about languages and cultures. Specifically, students who complete this program will be able to participate in simple conversations on familiar topics including, but not limited to, greetings, numbers, colors, clothing, food, and animals. Students will be able to identify alphabetic characters leading them towards the ability to read the target language. Students will become aware of the different languages and cultures around them to help them to be more productive citizens in a global community. This program will be held at Kettle Run High School in Nokesville, VA. The program runs from Monday, July 6 to Tuesday, July 21. There will be no classes on Fridays.
