CHS STARTALK will provide an innovative learning environment for a limited number of Chinese teacher-trainees from Sunday, June 25 to Friday, July 7 (residential) and Monday, July 10 to Friday, July 28, 2017 (online). Lodging and meals are included.
The program will emphasize the TELL domains of Learning Experiences, Planning, and Collaboration, linking these focus areas to STARTALK-endorsed Principles for Effective Teaching and Learning and Characteristics of Effective Language Lessons. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in a supervised practicum during Week 2 of the F2F.
Late afternoon and evening activities are available through our partnership with Common Ground on the Hill (http://www.commongroundonthehill.org), which offers in-depth courses in art, dance, music, instruments, and discussion topics focused on promoting cross-cultural understanding, assisting participants to discover best practices to infuse culture in the language classroom (participants' family members are welcome to sign up for CGOTH separately).
Teacher-trainees will also have the opportunity to earn up to six undergraduate or graduate credits in education, with additional responsibilities required.
