STARTALK: China in Baltimore

Chinese
  • July 6, 2015July 24, 2015: Program segment (face-to-face)
  • The New Century School, Baltimore, MD

This program aims to provide meaningful, motivating, and cultural Chinese experiences to elementary-age learners. The key priority is to increase students' Chinese language proficiency and desire to continue learning. Our student-centered, theme-based, and backward-designed program, “STARTALK: China in Baltimore,” teaches Chinese language and culture via a curriculum based on a central question: What if Baltimore city became a city in China, Shanghai perhaps? What would students need to get around? What kind of food would they be exposed to? Where could they go visit and how would they get there? These among many other questions will be answered throughout our summer program. Students will also get the opportunity to experience a taste of China. Students for "STARTALK: China in Baltimore" will prepare authentic Chinese food and eat food authentic to local Chinese cities. They will also explore the local Baltimore area with the mindset that they are in a Chinese city. Through exposure to these types of activities students will have the chance to compare American and Chinese culture. The urban location of The New Century School (historic Fells Point) is an ideal place for students to experience diversity in culture and a wealth of city landmarks.
