FCPS STARTALK Chinese Summer Program 2018
The Fayette County Public School District’s 2018 STARTALK Chinese Summer Program will provide 55 instructional hours via a 2-week summer program for 120 district students (rising grades 1 – 6) who are currently studying Chinese language in district schools as well as native/heritage speakers in those grades & schools.
Expected outcomes include 1) students will sustain &/or improve their language proficiency levels (novice – intermediate); 2) students will increase their knowledge of & experience with Chinese culture; & 3) student experiences will provide PR & help build interest among other students to participate in school-year Chinese classes & future STARTALK programs.
The program will result in an increase in the number of students studying Chinese throughout the secondary grades & eventually at the postsecondary level, strengthening the K – 16 pipeline.
Participating students will develop a more sophisticated world view & appreciation for other cultures & meeting the district’s mission of creating a collaborative community that ensures all students achieve at high levels & graduate prepared to excel in a global society.
The program will also engage parents in actively supporting the district’s Chinese language program, which may play a critical role in the district continuing to fund the offering of Chinese in future years.
