Credits earned in graduate courses may be used to fulfill licensure requirements or to pursue Alternate Route Certification Programs offered in most states.

    Summary

    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.
