    Summary

    OneWorld Now!’s vision is that all young Americans have access to transformative international education. In our tenth year offering the STARTALK summer immersion program, we will hold a three-week-long, non-residential Arabic, Chinese, and Korean language immersion program for at least 51 non-heritage high school students in Seattle, with a focus on minority and low-income high school youth. The program includes 15 six-hour days, for a total of 90 contact hours. The desired outcome of the STARTALK-OWN Summer Language Camp is to introduce the students to Arabic, Mandarin Chinese and Korean, motivate them to continue their language and cultural studies, and encourage them to explore related post-secondary studies and careers with a demand for critical languages.

    Summary

    The STARTALK Teacher Program, “Preparing Language Teachers for the 21st Century,” will prepare 10 native (or near native) speakers of Chinese, Korean, Portuguese, or Russian to teach in a standards and content-based program, focused on developing communicative proficiency and accuracy in students learning these languages and on integrating STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) into language instruction. The program is designed to teach participants the STARTALK principles and standards-based language teaching and curriculum development, as well as the content knowledge needed to pass the Washington Educator Skills Test – Endorsement (WEST-E) for World Languages. Teachers will be able to work toward obtaining a P-12 World Language Endorsement for teaching these languages in Washington K-12 public schools. The program also provides scholarship assistance to complete the required assessments (WEST-E and ACTFL OPIc and WPT). In 2017, the 75-hour program will offer six UW credits of EDC&I 495 from the University of Washington College of Education and will run from June 19, 2017 through July 21, 2017 with both online and in-person components.
