The GLP Summer Startalk Program: Highly Effective Teacher By Design, is a two week program designed to bring together learners to both improve their own instruction as well as support colleagues in their professional growth. We will begin our time together by establishing a common understanding of the characteristics of highly effective world language instruction as well as the components of the world readiness standards. We will continue by exploring the role of learning targets and formative assessment as a means to monitor student language development, ensuring participants meet their end of course goals. Next we will focus on lesson planning, comprehensible input, and checking for understanding, which are essential elements of a successful second language classroom. In week two we will focus on practicing the implementation of what was learned in week one. This week will provide opportunities for participants to teach lessons to groups of students and receive feedback on those lessons. Based on the feedback, participants will revise the lesson and re-teach it to a new group later in the week. This focus on the reflection and refinement process will provide participants the opportunity to develop skills they can implement in their classrooms in the fall.

Hunter College’s Chinese Teacher Training Program (6/24–7/23) will offer three 3-credit courses at undergraduate and graduate levels: Methods, Second Language Acquisition, and Teaching Chinese With Technology. These courses can be used to fulfill the requirements for the New York State Chinese Certificate and for Hunter College’s MA degree in Teaching Chinese. Non-Hunter students can take courses with non-degree status. The courses will be taught by college professors with high school teaching experience. Participants can choose to take one or more of the offered courses depending on personal interest and time availability. Training will be conducted every day (Monday through Thursday and some weekends) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. through a variety of activities including lectures, classroom instruction, observation, student teaching, presentations, workshops, and individual research projects. Different levels of student teaching (tutorial sessions, small group, or whole class teaching) will be assigned to participants based on their ability and background. Instructors will be available for office hours, lesson plan writing clinics, and individual conferences to assist teacher-trainees. Participants will produce teaching videos on classroom management, teaching stories, and theme-based teaching. Program participants will receive scholarships if they complete course requirements with satisfactory performance.
