Russian High School Program

Russian • June 25, 2013July 25, 2013
  • UCLA Center for World Languages, Los Angeles, CA

The UCLA Center for World Languages (CWL) and the National Heritage Language Resource Center (NHLRC) will offer two courses in Russian for high school students. "Russian for Heritage Students" is for learners who have been exposed to Russian since childhood and have some proficiency but are dominant in English. "Russian for Beginners" is for L2 beginners and heritage speakers without sufficient competence to function meaningfully in Russian. Both classes are theme-based; the theme for the heritage speakers' class is "Life and Culture of Teenagers in Russia," and the beginning class's theme is “Virtual Travel to Russia.” Our primary goal for these classes is to provide standards-based language instruction, equip students with the knowledge of Russian necessary for real-life situations, and expose them to Russian culture. Beginning students will learn to communicate with native speakers, get around in Russia, and build a solid foundation in the four language skills, while students in the heritage learners' class will expand their knowledge of the functional domains encountered outside the home and develop their literacy skills. An additional goal is to give high school students the opportunity to study Russian so that they can continue their studies and reach a high level of proficiency.

Heritage Language Teacher Workshop

Arabic, Chinese, Dari, Hindi, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, Turkish, Urdu • Residential Program
  • June 23, 2014June 27, 2014: Program segment (face-to-face)
  • UCLA Center for World Languages, Los Angeles, CA

In spite of the large number of Heritage Language Learners (HLL) in K-16 classrooms, language instructors in the U.S. are not prepared to teach them and few methodologies, materials, or curricula for teaching HLLs are available. This challenge is compounded in all STARTALK languages because they are less commonly taught and the teachers are often required to create their own materials and design the curricula. This workshop is designed to help language teachers understand the principles of heritage language instruction and how to apply them. Participants will explore ways to design their own curriculum and select materials and assessment tools. They will learn to involve students as active participants in the learning process. The workshop will incorporate the five Cs as recommended by the National Standards and the tenets of Backward Design. Participants will be assigned to complete our online STARTALK workshop, "Teaching Heritage Languages” prior to the workshop, and view the workshops by STARTALK/Seattle Public Schools on backward design and by STARTALK/Rutgers on World Language Standards. The instructors are Dr. Olga Kagan, UCLA ,and Dr. Maria Carreira, CSULB.

This challenge is compounded in all STARTALK languages because they are less commonly taught and the teachers are often required to create their own materials. This teacher workshop is designed to help language teachers learn how to develop suitable materials for their students by focusing on instructional materials that answer the needs of HLLs. The workshop will be designed to impart the principles and methods of HL materials development. The workshop also aims to create a cohort of language teachers who will be leaders and mentors in the field of HL instruction. We hope that teachers who participate in the workshop will commit to re-teaching “lessons learned” at their institution or in their region when they return home. The instructors are Dr. Olga Kagan, UCLA ,and Dr. Maria Carreira, CSULB.

University of Central Florida Russian Program subscribes to the philosophy that you cannot understand a foreign culture unless you speak the language. Our Russian program is an important asset to the nation's strategic language reserve and teaches a critical language targeted in the National Security Language Initiative program. In today’s global community doing business with other cultures has become inevitable. Our program focuses on Russian language and cultural understanding in the business world for future business leaders. The theme is “Preparation for a Business Trip to Russia”. In 2012 Russia became a new player in the World Trade Organization, exposing itself as a place of opportunity for American business. Mutual misunderstanding of culture between Americans and Russians has caused deleterious repercussions that have hindered healthy, peaceful business relationships.“Preparation for a Business Trip to Russia” is a three-week summer program offered to prospective and current UCF undergraduate students (50-60 students) with no or a little knowledge of Russian.Students will meet from 9a.m.-3p.m., Monday- Friday for a total of ninety hours of instruction, extra-curricular activities, and field trips.We intend to achieve a proficiency in Russian Language and an understanding of Russian Culture necessary for a business trip to Russia.

The program will focus on Chinese language acquisition pedagogy and related issues, including standards-based instruction, assessment, and curriculum development. A secondary focus of the workshop is on effective language instruction at the middle-school level, with attention to guided instruction in developing integrated, team-taught units in collaboration with other disciplines, and effective strategies for institutionalizing Chinese language within the middle school setting. Guest speakers will provide expertise on articulation issues, hands-on culture activities, and case studies of successful Chinese language-culture programs embedded in the middle school curriculum. Each participant will be expected to complete three workshop products: (1) a draft plan for working with teachers of other disciplines in the teacher’s own school building, (2) a draft for a cross-disciplinary team-taught unit on Chinese language-culture to be implemented in the 2010-2011 school year, and (3) a brief review of curriculum materials. All major costs of attendance are underwritten through funding from STARTALK.
