    Summary

    • The STARTALK-CHELER Chinese Leadership Program is designed to expand the conceptual understanding and practical teaching skills of experienced K-12 teacher leaders of community-based Chinese heritage schools/programs. The blended residential teacher program includes a one-month online session, an eight-day workshop on the main campus at the University of Toledo, and a semester-long online forum, with approximately 88 hours of instruction. The instruction and learning experiences will be differentiated for new and returning STARTALK participants. Teacher participants will collaborate in small groups to develop a Standards-based age-appropriate unit and student learning plans using backward design planning and STARTALK Endorsed Principles and to conduct micro-teachings to volunteer Chinese heritage speakers. The goals of the 2018 Program are to enhance the knowledge and skills of 18 participants by developing pedagogically-sound learning plans with technology and teaching practices focusing on the literacy development of Chinese heritage speakers and differentiated instruction (returning STARTALK participants particularly).
