Outcomes of the City University of Seattle Startalk Teacher Certification program: recruit 16 fluent speakers of Chinese, Korean, and Portuguese for Startalk Cohort 12. They will be at the novice teaching level (pre-service). Cohort 12 will take nine undergraduate quarter credits towards a Washington State teaching certificate. The program will run 14 days (July 2-July 20) for a total of 90 instructional hours. After the summer program, candidates will take an additional 14 credits over fall, winter and spring quarters, completing student teaching and the edTPA by June. During the field experience, teacher candidates will take the Designated World Languages test in order to add the world language endorsement to their teaching credentials. Teacher candidates, if all state standards and requirements are met, will then be able to apply for Washington state teaching certificates. The state teaching certificates may be exchanged in other states that have reciprocal agreements with Washington state.
