    Summary

    YingHua Startalk Student Program is a Mandarin Chinese and Chinese culture program good for 36 incoming 3rd to 9th grade students, with diverse socioeconomic, ethnic, and linguistic backgrounds and various Chinese proficiency levels ranging from Novice Low to Intermediate mid. Student participants will be actively engaged in 3 weeks of face-to-face, standards-aligned, science-oriented, culturally-enriching, and fully-immersed and theme-based learning opportunities, followed by 8 weeks of twice-weekly meetings after school, and 4 months of online learning. Beyond the Program, student participants can choose to remain engaged with the vibrant learning community from YingHua International School. Special marketing attention will be focused on the underprivileged areas such as Franklin Park, Somerset, NJ, to ensure that students who have not been exposed to Chinese learning, who are outside of community-based weekend language schools and well-funded high school language programs, are able to benefit from the Startalk program. Strong pedagogical leadership, well-crafted curricular design, the expertise and experience of teachers, together with a low student-teacher ratio, will guarantee the high quality of YingHua Startalk Student Program.

    Summary

    YingHua STARTALK Teacher Program is an intensive 12-day training program designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of teachers of Mandarin Chinese. Participating teachers of varying levels of expertise, experience, and preparedness, learn to incorporate World-Readiness standards, immersion and inquiry-based learning principles in their teaching, and continue to advance their understanding of Startalk-endorsed principles and techniques. The key components of the program involve two types of learning: direct teaching by highly-qualified instructors known for their expertise in the field of world language education, and hands-on teaching and re-teaching experience in close collaboration with the YingHua Startalk Student Program. Participants will design and deliver lessons first to peers and then to real-world students, receiving immediate feedback from peers and instructors on their lessons, which they will then revise and re-teach with higher quality. This focus on the reflection and refinement process will provide participants the opportunity to develop skills they can implement in their classrooms in the real world immediately or as soon as the fall.

    Summary

    The Rutgers Chinese Teacher Leadership Academy is a two-week, 80-hour intensive program in which pre- and in-service Chinese teachers will engage in professional development focused on literacy and online instruction. During the academic year, program participants are invited to the Rutgers Chinese Round Table, where Chinese language teachers engage in a monthly, supportive community of practice. As part of the program, Chinese language teacher participants engage in two two practicum settings: an online program for high school students and an elementary FLEX program. At the end of the program, teachers will be able to:

    plan learning experiences that support the STARTALK principles and World Readiness Standards for Learning Languages;

    differentiate instruction
    (planning learning experiences that address the students' unique needs), especially in terms of literacy
    development; use a variety of learning tools to support performance objectives (in face-to-face and online contexts);

    routinely use internal and external assessment data to modify the learning experience; and

    grow as reflective practitioners.

    Summary

    CLASSRoad’s 2018 fully-online STARTALK program will provide opportunity for thirty-five (35) intermediate and master Arabic, Chinese and Persian language teachers to focus on TELL Planning Domain P6 (a and c) criteria, Learning Experience Domain LE2 (a and b) criteria, LE4 (a and b) criteria, building their ability to: 1) use the backward design process to plan for meaningful student engagement, 2) create daily performance objectives that capture student energy and commitment and that move them toward proficiency targets, and 3) provide comprehensible input while using the target language 90% of the time. The program will include asynchronous/ synchronous interaction among instructors and participants, feature video presentations by experts, formative assessments, discussions, observations of recorded online language teaching examples--including video from previous year teacher participants--peer learning and feedback, peer microteaching practice, online co-teaching of remote language students, and self-assessment and personal growth plan development. The four-week program (80 contact hours) will feature three weeks of module-based daily instruction and group work, including online synchronous presentations by guest experts, several days of peer microteaching and preparation, followed by a fourth week that involves co-teaching to remote novice target language students, along with peer observation, personal reflection and professional planning. The program will be fully delivered online using the CLASSRoad Canvas learning management system and the web-conference platform Adobe Connect, which allows for adaptive design, improved mobile accessibility, the giving of timely feedback, and the course to be structured in an innovative and highly interactive manner.
