    Summary

    CLASSRoad’s 2019 fully-online STARTALK program will provide opportunity for thirty-five (35) intermediate and master Arabic, Chinese and Persian language teachers to focus on TELL Learning Experience Domain LE4 (c and e) criteria and LE5 (a) criteria, Learning Tools Domain LT2 (a) criteria, and Professionalism Domain PR3 (b) criteria, building their ability to use the backward design process to plan for meaningful student engagement and successful attainment of daily performance objectives, leading toward unit or course proficiency targets. 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 4.5-week program (80 contact hours) will feature four and a half weeks of module-based daily instruction and group work, including online presentations by guest experts, several days of peer microteaching and preparation, followed by a fourth week that involves co-teaching to remote target language students, along with peer observation, personal reflection and professional planning. We are including foundational documents and concepts in the orientation module so that participants can gain earlier exposure to and practice with the content as they become familiar with the course organization and tools.

    Summary

    The Mandarin Institute STARTALK PRE-AP Program will provide 100 students from across the US the opportunity to strengthen their Chinese language skills whether in preparation for an AP Chinese course or for those who just want to improve their Chinese. The online learning environment is powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology that incorporates the best strategies for second language acquisition which makes learning Chinese more efficient, effective and engaging.

    Through the theme of Innovation and Invention, participants will learn about the Four Great Inventions of China (paper, gunpowder, printing, compass), compare and contrast American and Chinese ingenuity and progress through innovations to today's social media, and explore the impact of these innovations on our lives.

    Each day students will engage in 90 minutes of synchronous online instruction with a teacher and 3 other students in addition to ~ 2 hours of asynchronous learning which includes independent, pair and group projects. Upon completion of the 50-hour program, students will attain intermediate-mid to intermediate-high ACTFL proficiency level and will have exposure to AP content and instruction.

    * All applicants will be given a complimentary license to AI tools that enable comprehension of text and facilitate independent reading.
