    Summary

    The Providence Day School (PDS) Chinese Teacher Program is a 60 contact hour intensive teacher training designed to meld a comprehensive introduction to current research-backed practices in Second Language Acquisition (including the 6 STARTALK Principles for effective language teaching) with a practical hands-on “do & reflect” approach. Teacher participants will learn from a team of experienced world language teachers and teacher-trainers, and have ample opportunities to apply that knowledge both during this 2-week program and (for 8 of the 12 participants) during the 3-week, 90 contact hour student program immediately following the teacher program. Teachers will work collaboratively to experience, interpret, discuss and apply best practices in world language instruction. They will create, teach, and participate in a variety of whole class, small group, paired and individual activities designed to equip them with new tools to deliver more effective student-centered language instruction in both the student program to follow and in their yearlong classrooms. Assessment of teacher success will be measured both by the TELL framework during the program, as well as a summative assessment: drafting, workshopping, finalizing and implementing culturally-rich, student-centered STARTALK Learning Plans.
