  • July 13, 2015July 24, 2015: Beginner Course: Standards-Based Instruction in Chinese Language: From Theory to Practice (face-to-face)
  • Glastonbury High School, Glastonbury, CT

Advanced Course: June 29 – July 10: Prerequisite: 3 years teaching experience. Participants will develop an understanding of what it takes to become a leader, how to develop a vision of what good classroom performance is, how to communicate that vision to other teachers, and finally how to assist other teachers in implementing that vision in their classes. Participants will also focus on diagnosing difficulties, and promoting ways to manage the learning process. Participants learn to provide feedback and coaching to other teachers so that instruction is maximized. Technology will be an integral part of the course and will be used to gather data. Beginner Course: July 13 – 24: This course centers on a Chinese curriculum that is standards-based, infuses technology, and includes the latest philosophies of language teaching. Participants will discuss how curriculum needs to be created with a “backward design” model, keeping in mind that focused assessment is a key component of Understanding by Design. Participants will also learn techniques for helping their students become more proficient as they continue their language study. Teachers will learn elements of differentiated instruction and demonstrate their understanding by teaching a mini-lesson. Observation and reflection are integral parts of the course.
