Chinese Dragon's Math Maze - Chinese Language and Culture Immersion Program

Chinese • June 30, 2011July 15, 2011
  • Edward P. Boland Elementary School, Springfield, MA

This elementary immersion program is in its 3rd year. There are many returning students and students who have some Chinese language ability, so the program has two levels of proficiency. The program centers around a Chinese Dragon’s Math Maze theme. The program goals and outcomes address both the 5 Cs of language instruction and the 3 modes of communication leading to Chinese proficiency. To support the link to the elementary math standards and outcomes, a district Math Consultant prepares teachers to address district math goals and reviews the requisite math vocabulary and concepts. As a result, the immersion experience reinforces district math concepts and skills while using Chinese. Daily life and social interaction vocabulary and Chinese culture (calligraphy, origami, tangrams, martial arts, song and dance) are also included in the program. Breakfast and Lunch (provided by the district) are also a time for learning with teachers using the time for review and interaction at each grade level.

This program is designed to prepare teachers of the STARTALK-supported languages to play the role of Cooperating /Master Teachers to future members of our profession. The program is designed to assemble teams of professionals responsible for teacher preparation programs at different colleges and universities across the nation. Ideally, each team will have a representative who is a Methods Instructor, a University Supervisor who conducts classroom observations of student teachers in the field and a Cooperating/Master Teacher who has or plans to play this role in the future. Cooperating/Master Teacher applicants who have at least three-years teaching experience will be given preference for this program. While the program focuses on the preparation of Cooperating/Master teachers to support teacher candidates, it is intended to strengthen the overall teacher preparation program by clarifying and aligning the goals, program outcomes and the roles of the three main components of the teacher preparation program (methods course syllabi, university supervision observation tools and the cooperating/master teacher modeling of standards-based teaching and assessment practices. The overall goal for the program is for each teams to leave with an action plan designed to make their entire teacher preparation program a coherent learning experience for the teacher candidates.
