The TACCL program is a two-week summer teacher education experience for Chinese language teachers that will improve their ability to design standards-based curricula that fosters higher levels of Chinese language and cultural learning in their students. This program is a ten-day blended learning experience with 60- hour program for 20 Chinese language teachers who are teaching or plan to teach in immersion and second language programs. Participants will be able to better identify and enact the characteristics of culture in proficiency-based instruction, and the specific implications for curriculum, instruction and assessment for a U.S. classroom. Participants will prepare and deliver lesson plans and assessment plans that emphasize these understandings and practice through micro teaching and receive feed back on their teaching. Participants will produce a cultural growth road map of their own transformative and developmental culture learning, authentic Chinese language teaching materials, assessment rubrics and share them with others.
