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.

There will also be a workshop on task-based instruction and a seminar on proficiency-based teaching. Training will be conducted through a variety of activities, such as classroom observation and discussion, teaching rehearsal, student-teaching, teaching discussion, etc. Participants draft lesson plans, discuss them with the lead teacher and fellow participants, rehearse the lessons, teach them in a real classroom, and discuss the teaching afterwards. Participants may choose to participate with no credit, or may choose to earn up to 6 graduate credits over the summer, and an additional 3 credits in the fall semester. For-credit participants are eligible to receive tuition scholarship support if they complete course requirements with outstanding performance.
