Sounds of China: STARTALK - Learn Chinese Through Beijing Opera Performance

Chinese
  • July 27, 2015August 14, 2015: Program segment (face-to-face)
  • Binghamton University, Binghamton, NY

This unique summer camp integrates Mandarin Chinese language learning with the theme of Beijing Opera, a spectacular and distinctive style of Chinese performing art. Language classes, cultural classes, and crafts workshops will be scheduled in the morning, while Beijing Opera classes will be scheduled in the afternoon. Students will face real-world Chinese language situations and will have the chance to solve unpredictable challenges by using the Chinese language learned on the same day. A goal of this camp is to allow students to communicate with Chinese people of different ages, backgrounds, professions and personal experiences, including some Chinese, young and old, from the local Chinese community. In the end of this program, they will have the language skills to carry out various tasks, from basic survival tasks to expressing opinions. They will also have an understanding of Beijing Opera, including its singing style, the symbolic meaning of its specialized body language, the traditional face painting, the costumes, its social context, its history and its future. Meanwhile, students will be able to think about, describe, and discuss these aspects of Beijing Opera in Chinese language (at each student’s proficiency level).

Highly Effective Teacher By Design

Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Russian
  • July 6, 2015July 17, 2015: Program segment (face-to-face)
  • Columbia University: Knox Hall, New York, NY

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.
