HUSD STARTALK Portuguese Language Academy
K-2, 3-5, 6-8
The two primary outcomes for the proposed project are a positive learning experience for approximately 100 Portuguese heritage students in grades 1-8 ranging in language ability from novice to intermediate, along with a professional development experience for 15 Portuguese language and culture educators that will increase their language and cultural knowledge as well as their pedagogical content knowledge to successfully implement standards-based language instruction in their classrooms. The students will participate in approximately 75 hours of instruction in a three-week program that will be incorporated into the Hilmar Unified School District's summer school program.

University of Utah Portuguese Student Camp
The 2018 University of Utah (UU) Portuguese Startalk student program is an exciting opportunity for 30 rising seventh-grade Portuguese immersion students in Utah to push past the limitations of their classrooms and see how advanced levels of Portuguese language proficiency can open new doors for college and career readiness. A primary goal of the program is to provide the antidote to student attrition in dual language immersion programs, which commonly occurs as students move from the elementary to secondary school, by providing them with exciting ways to apply their growing language fluency to new subjects – in this case the Amazon, biodiversity, human rights and environmental issues. The program will feature three weeks of blended learning with 60 hours of Portuguese instruction and collaboration nestled between 30 hours of online, distance-learning curriculum. Students, including both heritage and non-heritage Portuguese speakers, will enter the student camp primarily at the intermediate-low proficiency level. During the camp experiences, student participants will engage in advanced-low discourse as they research issues of biodiversity, human rights, and environmental protection; compare and contrast Brazilian and American culture; discuss and debate controversial topics; and write informational essays and present group projects related to the Amazon Rainforest.
