    Summary

    UPDATED INFORMATION FOR 2021 PROGRAM COMING SOON!

    This online teacher training summer institute emphasizes classroom teaching strategies and basic principles that can be applied to a variety of classroom settings. Participants develop engaging tasks in the three modes of communication in real-life and meaningful contexts with backwards design. They design and demo- or micro-teach lessons with focus on learner proficiency and background, use of the target language and making it comprehensible, and based on the use of authentic materials. Participants demonstrate their abilities through four key assessments: a) observe and develop a new 'food' activity (less experienced) or lesson (more experienced), b) develop an authentic material based interpretive task adapted for remote learning, c) an online micro-teaching lesson and d) a presentation of three connected lessons (for less experienced) or a thematic unit (for more experienced) through multiple round-tables in breakout rooms. Teachers are trained to apply and demonstrate their knowledge of the standards, specifically the communication and culture standards, effective instructional strategies, comprehensive input and authentic materials to their diverse teaching settings for Hindi/Urdu and Arabic. STARTALK@NYU recruits 21 school, heritage school or college teachers. Preference is given to applicants with teaching experience and native or near-native language proficiency with limited formal training. Our curriculum is designed to be interactive and hands-on even during the online portion. We model instructional techniques, so that participants experience the methods and approaches that they need to implement in their own micro-teaching and teaching after the program.
