BYU Chinese Teacher Training Program

Chinese • June 21, 2010 July 16, 2010
  • Brigham Young University, Provo, UT

The BYU Teacher Training Program will offer two tracks this year: a methods course and a curriculum development workshop. The methods course is designed to train current and future teachers of Chinese at any level. The program focuses on a performance-based approach to teaching Chinese and will discuss general foreign language pedagogy issues and a focused look at issues related to teaching Chinese as a foreign language as well as practice in curriculum design, effective quiz writing, classroom activity development, as well as evaluating and adapting existing teaching materials. Teachers will have the opportunity to observe live classrooms and practice new teaching methods. The curriculum development workshop is designed to help Chinese language teachers create student-centered, proficiency-based, well sequenced and scaffolded lesson plans and materials for each of eight units of the USOE Chinese I and II curriculum. This will be a collaborative effort and all participants will come away with a set of all materials developed. A videographer and illustrator will be on site to help with materials preparation. This course is most appropriate for those already teaching or planning to teach Chinese in junior high or high school and have already had a methods course.

Arabic Teacher Apprenticeship Progam

Arabic • June 21, 2010 July 14, 2010
  • Brigham Young University, Provo, UT

The National Middle East Language Resource Center (NMELRC) at Brigham Young University (BYU) welcomes this opportunity to extend its teacher training activities to five more K-16 teachers of Arabic and teachers in training. Participants take advantage of two modules, an on-line tutorial focussing on theory and background on teaching Arabic as a foreign language and an on-campus residential practicum, where trainees work closely with master teachers observing and teaching live classes. Those completing both modules receive three credit hours of Arabic 377 (“Arabic Teaching Methodology.”). A graduate course number and revised expectations can be arranged for those needing it. The strength of this program lies in the balance of pedagogical theory, observation and practice teaching, close mentoring, and reflection. Apprentices interact closely with the students and master teachers from breakfast to dark, allowing them to see that language learning is far more than just a classroom matter. The website below will give you an idea of the student program that apprentices observe, assist as mentors, and in which they do some teaching. If you want to know more about the program please write or call.

Welcome to Granite School District’s 2012 STARTALK Program! This program will launch Chinese language and cultural study in three Chinese immersion elementary schools in Granite and Weber School Districts and provide summertime Chinese learning opportunities for students entering first grade and fourth grade. This carefully articulated STARTALK student program gives first grade students the opportunity to jump start their Chinese language study through the summer months. Fourth grade students in the Chinese dual immersion program will use their language skills to mentor the incoming first graders. Granite School District 2012 STARTALK students will learn from the 2012 theme “Mulan Loves Sports and Games”. First grade students will learn the story of Mulan and the physical activities Mulan had to learn throughout her life. All traditional Chinese physical activities will be taught to the students in Chinese with an emphasis on grade level math concept. Fourth grade students will work with first grade students on language production and character recognition. An online/DVD learning component will provide some limited early investigation of the STARTALK themes at home with friends and family in English, prior to their camp experience, which will help the students jump into topic conversations in Chinese.
