    Summary

    The North Central College Chinese program will provide a STARTALK teacher program for 12 teachers of Mandarin Chinese from weekend Chinese schools. This program, focusing on equipping participants with strategies and tools in selecting and applying authentic materials in Chinese language classrooms, is delivered through a combination of face-to-face and online formats. The program, with a total instructional time of over 90 hours, combines a 10-day face-to-face workshop and 5-day online modules, to guide participants to use authentic materials and apply effective teaching strategies in unit and lesson planning. To ensure the continued support for participants’ application of training content, two post- program reunion and sharing activities are designed during the fall and winter. The expected outcomes are that participants are able to select age-appropriate authentic materials for their lessons, scaffold student learning through effective teaching strategies and tools, and develop performance-based assessments using authentic materials.
