STARTALK Portuguese Teacher Training
The target audience for the 70-hour, four-week online and two-day on-site blended Portuguese Teacher Training program (PTT) is fifteen K-16 teachers of Portuguese with a minimum of one-year of teaching experience. Ideally, they should strive to deliver student-centered instruction and predominantly teach in the target language. The goal is to provide opportunities for teachers of Portuguese to integrate research-based best practices into their language teaching, learn to reflect critically on their own performance, engage collaboratively with colleagues to develop effective teaching strategies, and to recognize, analyze and compare different cultural practices from the Portuguese-speaking world. The program also trains teachers to facilitate their students’ acquisition of intercultural communicative competence.

Read-On: Teaching Reading Literacy in Chinese
We are proposing a 10-day residential program that brings together sixteen experienced teachers of Chinese as a foreign language (CFL) and four master teachers, to focus on strategies for literacy acquisition in Chinese, with an emphasis on developing higher level reading. The participants will be selected to form four evenly balanced teams representing teachers from college (grades 13+), high school (9-12) teaching at the intermediate level or higher, middle school (6-8) and high school teaching at the novice level, and immersion programs in grades 3-8. Participants will be on task for a total of 90 hours, using studies of higher level literacy skills in Chinese and English to set higher level literacy goals for students of CFL and best practices for achieving them, and designing thematically-based units that implement these best practices in a Standards-based curriculum. The units that the participants develop will be posted on the Holy Cross Chinese Literacy website and will be freely accessible to all.
