    Summary

    The UNG STARTALK Chinese and Astronomy Academy offers a two week (with 91 instructional hours) residential summer camp to 24 local, non-heritage high school students (rising Grade 9 - Grade 12) with no prior knowledge of the Chinese language from north Georgia area. The content and focus of learning will be spun on the theme “Outer Space: Truths, Myths and Mysteries”, integrated with the topics of astronomy selected from the Georgia Performance Standards (Georgia DOE, 2009) for High School Astronomy, the literacy of Chinese myths about the night sky, the Chinese language to introduce basic knowledge of astronomy and used in a simulated working place –an auction of selling naming rights of stars, and the Chinese culture connected to the topics of astronomy and the related myths. In this STEM focused language academy, students will be motivated to explore outer space through well designed content and context based and student centered scientific and language learning activities, making connections across disciplines and relating content to real world experience.
