    Program Setting



    Our 2019 program theme is "Global New Jersey," in which we focus on using storytelling to develop global competence. We welcome up to 20 participants of a variety of language backgrounds and teaching experience for a two-week summer intensive program (90 hours) with academic year follow-up via our Language Roundtables (an additional 16 hours), for a total of 106 hours. We will support participants as they design lessons for a "Global New Jersey" theme, engage in micro-teaching, teach K-6 students in a local summer camp, and reflect upon those experiences. Participants will leave the program with the new knowledge, skills, and materials to use storytelling in their language teaching; teach a "Global New Jersey" unit designed to build global competence; and develop a long-term professional development plan. At the end of the program, they will belong to a year-long community of practice in which they can find support for their instruction and leadership development via a network of STARTALK-minded teachers.
