Camp participants engage in thematic instruction which actively involves them in sports, the arts, a field trip, and more—all in Chinese. Pre-service teachers participate in a methods course at Rutgers University and in a practicum experience at Princeton High School. The teacher program is designed for teacher candidates to connect theory to practice, have opportunities to observe best teaching practice, engage in micro-teaching, reflect upon their experiences, and prepare a long-term professional development plan.

2009 Persian STARTALK Camp, Grades 1-12

San Diego, CA • Persian • July 6, 2009 July 24, 2009

The Language Acquisition Resource Center at San Diego State University will offer a 3-week (July 6-24) full-time Persian STARTALK summer camp for students nationwide (grades 1-12). Our standards- and performance-based curriculum will follow the models offered by the Standards for Foreign Language Learning. Our students will be of varying linguistic and cultural backgrounds and will be grouped appropriately, especially in activities that are demanding linguistically. Since the group will have varying interests in cultural and artistic activities, teachers will tailor lesson plans to appeal to a number of diverse learning styles. Students will be assessed in several ways. We will use Linguafolio, student portfolios, and performance-based evaluations. We will gather performance data from audio and video files, crafts projects, students' interactions, and class discussions. In addition to the 3-week summer camp, students will continue to be instructed by STARTALK teachers twice during the year via on-line modules to maintain their language skills. Prior to this year's camp, teachers received extensive training in instruction and in curriculum and lesson development, and they have created media-rich resources to be used in the class. Materials used in class will be posted to the STARTALK site at http://persianstartalk.sdsu.edu.

Turkish Language and Culture STARTALK Program

San Diego, CA • Turkish • August 10, 2009 August 21, 2009

This proposal is developed in collaboration with the faculty from San Diego State University’s (SDSU) Language Acquisition Resource Center (LARC) and the committee members of San Diego Turkish School of the American Turkish Association of Southern California (ATASC). The proposal is to offer an intensive summer language program in Turkish for up to 20 students, grades 1-5. A unique feature of our proposal is that we will ensure the sustainability of our program by offering Turkish language courses for students in grades 1-5 for the following fall and spring through San Diego Turkish School of ATASC. Our summer program will not only focus on teaching language but also will emphasize teaching Turkish culture by bringing in Turkish-speaking community members to teach Turkish history, music, dance, and other expressive forms of Turkish culture. We will have a small student to teacher ratio (20:2) and will use a co-teaching model, meaning that we will have 2 teachers for the classroom with expertise in the Turkish language, history, music, or art. In this way, students will be able to have small group instruction in Turkish based on their level of language proficiency.
