  • Burlington, VT

The teacher program of StarTalk Vermont intents to provide opportunities for 10 Chinese language teachers from across the nation to upgrade their knowledge and skills in instruction by developing a comprehensive understanding of the StarTalk Principles and the Standards for Foreign Language Learning in the 21st Century. The participants will have 104 hours of instructional time, including daily coaching by a Lead Instructor, presentations and lectures given by experts, lesson design with consultation of the experts, and reflections on the activities they are engaged in as compared with their teaching practices in schools. The participants will apply what they learn to practice by teaching in the student program so that each teacher will have several opportunities for instruction. The program will last for 13 days, and a pre-program assignment on StarTalk Principles, the 5 C's, and the Coaching approcah is required. Follow-up contacts will be maintained through E-mail, Skype sessions, and telephone calls after the program. Certain technology approaches will be applied to the teacher program for instruction and for management of the program.
