This three-week hybrid teacher training program will prepare sixteen new and returning secondary and post-secondary teachers of Arabic, Chinese, Dari, and Persian with the knowledge and practicum opportunities to design and deliver curricula and lessons based on backward design and STARTALK-endorsed principles for effective teaching and learning. An additional core focus will be on thematically organized performance-based units of instruction in a learner-centered classroom. Successful teachers will earn three units of graduate level college credit. Interested participants will attend an additional 40 hours of continuing teacher education offered by CWLP-SAILN on-site or online, and will become fellows of CWLP upon the final training. The participants will also learn about the steps that are involved in becoming a credentialed teacher in the state of California.
