  • Scenic Park Language and Culture Camp, Anchorage, AK

Our 2013 STARTALK Chinese summer camp will give up to 60 students the opportunity to experience and learn Chinese in a fun and stimulating environment. Activities will be based on the 5 C’s of the National Standards for Foreign Language Learning in the 21st Century and will incorporate authentic, integrated performance assessments. Students will experience Chinese culture and language through the theme: “The Wandering Panda.” Activities invoke the five C’s, emphasizing Communication and Culture. Activities are thematically organized around a story that unfolds and is told and acted by the students themselves throughout the ten days of camp. The Wandering Panda travels and explores the wonders of three main regions of China. Panda is in search of an abundant food source—bamboo—for his or her family and friends. At the beginning of the camp each child creates, draws, describes and names his/her own Panda, creates a passport, and begins the quest. Students will learn Chinese language and culture through best practices and meaningful, enjoyable activities that maximize time and engagement with the language. They will demonstrate increasing use of Chinese, understanding of Chinese, engagement with the language, love of the language and culture, and a desire to continue.
