Chinese Program Enhancement Project (C-PEP)

Chinese • June 11, 2010 August 21, 2010
  • C-PEP for Teachers, Columbus, OH

This is a continuation of a successful Startalk Teacher program in 2008 and 2009 and aims to continue to improve the instructional quality of Chinese programs in the state of Ohio. This year's C-PEP will focus on differenciated classroom management and performance assessment. Twelve teachers will be selected to participate in C-PEP, through which each may optionally receive one graduate credit. The training is on the implementation of standards-based curriculum and instructions, using the performed culture approach. C-PEP will consist of three phases. Phase One, in early June, prior to the start of the sister student program, Chinese Immersion Summer Day Camp ("C-Camp"), is a three-day intensive program in Columbus, OH in preparation for the C-Camp. In Phase Two takes place during the two-week C-Camp at four Ohio locations. The teachers receive on-the-job training from their personal trainers as they implement testing and assessment and differenciated classes. Phase Three will take place in August. The trainees and the trainers will gather in Columbus for a day to debrief, reflect, and prepare for the teachers' preparation for the school year.

Chinese Immersion Summer Day Camps for Ohio Students

Chinese • June 16, 2010 June 29, 2010
  • Gahanna Middle School South, Gahanna, OH
  • Polaris Career Center, Cleveland, OH
  • Sycamore High School, Cincinnati, OH
  • Miami Valley School, Dayton, OH

The Chinese Immersion Summer Day Camp for Ohio Students is a collaborative project proposed by the Ohio State University to operate in four metropolitan areas of Ohio: Columbus, Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Dayton. The goal is to provide Chinese immersion experience to a large number of students (expected to enroll 90 at four sites) with limited prior exposure to Chinese language in four Ohio locations. There will be 12 specially trained teachers of Chinese (most of whom have Ohio license to teach Chinese) and more support staff to work for the camps. These teachers will have gone through a three-day intensive training by the Chinese Program Enhancement Project. The 12 peer mentors (heritage speakers) will not only help the learners, but also be motivated to become potential teachers of Chinese in the future. All camp learners will have the opportunity to use the rudimentary Chinese they have studied in real contexts, and to enhance their chances of success in their continued study of Chinese.

Designed for any teacher as well as instructional leads in STARTALK programs, this online course will help participants use resources identified by the Teacher Effectiveness for Language Learning Project to increase their effectiveness. Participants will be able to complete up to 100 hours of professional learning through four online modules. Module 1 will provide an in-depth look at choosing learning targets not only focused on language and cultural competencies, but also how to develop “LEARNING TARGETS” that allow learners to connect and compare to other content areas, and demonstrate their learning in their community. Module 2 will provide the opportunity to see how carefully identified learning targets ease a teachers implementation of strategies for “USING THE TARGET LANGUAGE” and providing comprehensible input. Module 3 will ask participants to develop an understanding of the role of assessment in meeting the National Standards through the development of their own “PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENTS.” Module 4 will ask participants to reflect on their own effectiveness and develop a growth plan based on the “TELL PROJECT”. Each module includes videos, readings, threaded discussions, coaching sessions, and online chats with expert consultants. Within each module, participants will have a choice of assessment tasks to demonstrate their learning.

Penn State STARTALK Arabic Academy

University Park, PA • Arabic • June 15, 2009 July 10, 2009

Integrated into Penn State’s well-established Summer Intensive Language Institute, the Penn State STARTALK Arabic Academy offers scholarships for underserved high school and college students to study Arabic in an intensive, innovative, 4-week summer program and to earn 4 Penn State college credits. In addition to rigorous language classes (4 hours, Monday-Friday mornings), the Arabic Academy is distinguished by: • Afternoon "Immersion" programming, designed to meet students’ learning needs and foster a sense of community through enjoyable activities and simulations of “living the language and its culture.” • An introduction to the diversity of spoken Arabic dialects via a “Journey Through the Dialects” module that uses Web broadcasts and targeted dialogues to sample the range of colloquial Arabic and its cultures. • Authentic peer-to-peer interaction with young people who come from, or have lived in, the Arabic-speaking world. Arabic-speaking Penn State students serve as Academy interns, and STARTALK students will interact via email, SKYPE, or similar technological means with students in Tunisia who are learning English. High school students need to be within commuting distance of Penn State’s University Park campus, as housing is not provided. College students (priority given to Pennsylvania residents) may make their own housing arrangements.

This program will bring together K-14 Mandarin teachers to discuss their teaching practices, meet colleagues, and develop contacts for future collaboration during the school year. It will provide a good example for K-14 articulation to bring standards-based Chinese language and culture instruction to K-14 classroom. Furthermore, the participants will have the opportunity to attend a 2-day conference on Chinese Language Pedagogy with scholars and educators engaged in improving Chinese language education worldwide. The participants will learn to integrate theories and practices for teaching Chinese language and culture effectively. Each participant will receive a $400 stipend, 4 professional units from UC Berkeley Extension and a Certificate of Completion. This program is a condensed version of the Teaching Chinese as a Heritage/Foreign Language Certificate Program. Participants can enroll in the Certificate Program after the summer program to pursue the Teaching Chinese Certificate awarded by UC Berkeley Extension. Graduates from this Teaching Chinese Certificate Program who successfully completed a 4-year teacher training program overseas will have the chance to receive the preliminary Single Subject Credential in Chinese (State teacher licensure). Therefore, the 2010 Berkeley STARTALK Teacher Program is a sample of the Certificate Program that can lead to California teacher certification.

Swahili language and culture for Indiana high schools

Swahili • June 7, 2010 July 2, 2010
  • Swahili language and culture for Indiana high schools, Bloomington, IN

The main goal of the STARTALK Swahili student program is to introduce Swahili to Bloomington High schools, initially, as a nonresidential program. In the future we would like to offer it as a residential program and make it available to all Indiana high schools.The program will integrate the 5Cs of the National Foreign language Standards with a focus on the C of Communication and the C of Cultures. This will be a four week program with each week focusing on a particular cultural theme such as greetings, extended family, traditional clothes, food, and story telling. The first week will focus on greetings, introductions and talking about family members. The second week, students will learn about different kinds of food, ingredients required, and how to shop and bargain for them at the market. Week three will introduce students to the art of story telling using children’s stories and folktales.

  • India studies House (WH), Bloomington, IN

STARTALK-SIPHUR 2010, targeted for high school students and a few college students, is a three-week summer intensive language program that runs from June 21 to July 9. This summer language program is a combined program of Hindi and Urdu, thus students can learn two languages by acquiring both scripts of Hindi and Urdu and also obtain a large vocabulary by being exposed to Hindi and Urdu words. Our program will consist of four components: morning in-class instruction, afternoon extracurricular activities, evening culture classes, and Saturday field-trips. The major instructional goals of our program are for the participants to acquire linguistic and cultural competence to communicate successfully using all three modes, and obtain other learning skills and strategies through learning a new language. They will also develop insight into their native language and culture and begin to compare their native language and culture to the language and culture of the target country. Students will broaden their knowledge and perspectives as curricular contents will be drawn from various disciplines. Students will become life-long learners by using the language with their relatives in the target countries or with local Indian/Pakistani community members, and hopefully continue to use it throughout their lives.
