- June 25, 2018 – July 27, 2018: (Face-to-face)
- 2018 Hawai‘i Chinese Teacher Training Institute, Honolulu, HI
For Part 1 of the STARTALK-Hawaii Institute, five elementary school teacher trainees will receive 30 hours of coaching over 5 days, to build their capacity to run a Grade 1 and Kindergarten dual immersion program in Chinese. In Part 2, eight or nine of the twelve teacher trainees will primarily be teaching grades 7-12; the rest may be distributed among elementary schools, community schools, or colleges. The Institute is 22 days long, on average 10 hours per day. Outcomes of the Institute include: Be able to identify the characteristics of a standards based, learner-centered, task- and performance oriented program; know what the 5Cs and the three modes look like when implemented in a curriculum; be very familiar with the STARTALK principles, and begin to innovate in "comprehensible input" strategies, particularly for reading; explore project-based learning; and gain experience and confidence in implementing these principles into your own planning, teaching, and assessment practices.
