Startalk Kentucky: Chinese Certification and Advancement

Chinese • June 1, 2012March 1, 2013
  • University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY

The STARTALK KY program will provide ten teachers of Chinese with training and experience for rank advancement. We anticipate teachers who have participated in the STARTALK program in the past and gained initial certification through the Teacher program and now wish to improve their abilities and to secure progression in the instructional system. As demand for Chinese language instruction K-20 has increased rapidly throughout the state of Kentucky, finding sufficient numbers of highly qualified, certified teachers is a limiting factor in building programs to meet this demand. The STARTALK KY teacher program will include 120 hours of instruction and practice teaching over 4 weeks in June 2012 and is articulated into the UK Masters of Arts in Teaching World Languages (MATWL) and its Chinese certification curriculum. Startalk KY is designed for current teachers including 1) those who are not yet certified in Chinese language who will enroll in a lateral entry program that leads to certification and 2) certified teachers who wish to improve their teaching and research skills, leading to promotion in rank of certification. Rank advancement is important for these teachers to become teacher trainers and supervisors for incoming Chinese teachers throughout the state of Kentucky.
