An application and in-person interview process will group students based on their language acquisition and proficiency level so that we can target their performance levels from Novice Low to High of the ACTFL language levels upon completion of the program. 102 instructional hours including 2-hour graduation ceremony and reception with 90% target language immersion will maximize a student’s performance and better assess the program’s outcomes through our 3-tiered proficiency levels and 4 specific language modes for teaching, learning, and a project platform.

Finally, they will perform practical presentational skills like arts, dance, drama, and skits using the middle schoolers’ interpretive culture, currently popular K-pop songs and K-dramas, to communicate with their friends and family in the Korean language and culturally appropriate manner.

    Summary

    The UCLA National Heritage Language Resource Center will offer a one-month teacher workshop that is designed to help language teachers face the challenge of teaching heritage language (HL) students. The workshop will open on June 1, 2019, with online assignments for three weeks. This will be followed by a five-day face-to-face workshop (June 24-28, 2019, at UCLA). Accepted participants will be required to complete the online assignments as well as the face-to-face workshop.
    The online assignments will focus on identifying and addressing the linguistic gaps in HL students’ language, differentiated teaching, and teaching mixed classes. The face-to-face workshop will focus on how to use project-based learning (PBL) as a useful tool in heritage language instruction. PBL is a learner-centered approach in which students work over an extended period of time on a task that demands engaging with complex issues, analyzing topics, solving problems, or meeting particular real-life challenges. The workshop will be designed to impart the principles and methods of PBL and the ways in which language teaching and authentic materials can be incorporated into a PBL classroom. Participants will engage in hands-on activities that involve the development, presentation, and critique of projects that can be used with HL students. We will accept 24 K-16 instructors who will spend 40 instructional hours over a week at UCLA, preceded by 30-50 hours of online work, including time spent working on assignments, and also time as needed during and after the workshop for online consultation with mentors and instructors. Participants will demonstrate an ability to apply principles of PBL by designing a Standards-based unit that is appropriate for HL learners (HLL) with differing proficiency levels and needs. They will apply knowledge gained from presentations, discussions, and exercises on HLL characteristics, differentiated instruction, standards-based instruction, project-based instruction, and backward design. This workshop aims to create a cohort of language teachers who will be leaders and mentors in the field of HL instruction. We hope that teachers who participate in the workshop will commit to re-teaching “lessons learned” at their institution or in their region when they return home.

    Summary

    This six-day 40-hour program is designed for 15 teachers of multiple STARTALK languages who have had successful experiences in STARTALK and who have a solid understanding of the STARTALK-Endorsed Principles for Teaching and Learning Languages, the World Readiness Standards for Language Learning and have had substantial experience in applying the principles and concepts featured in these documents into effective classroom practices. These teachers are at the point in their careers where they are ready to assume leadership roles in their schools, districts, professional organizations and in the STARTALK community. A sub-set of returning participants from the previous year program will be invited to participate and increase the leadership skills and experience by observing and reporting other programs in the CLTA/CWLP Summer Seminar as well as mentoring their peers who are participating in the program for the first time. All participants will complete a TELL self-assessment prior to arriving at the institute to create a baseline profile of their professional competencies along the TELL domains continua, and at the end of the program they will be able to plan and present a professional presentation on a topic selected from the TELL domains and facilitate different aspects of a successful and learner-centered professional learning activity. They will apply knowledge gained from presentations, discussing activities on the following topics: exploration of diverse leadership styles, advocacy, coping with change, coaching and mentoring, strategies for successful and engaging presentations and consensus building and group dynamics with the STARTALK principles integrated throughout. As they participate in the program, they will develop their own professional leadership development plan and will be supported in its implementation beyond the end of the program.

    Summary

    Our 2019 program theme is "Global New Jersey," in which we focus on using storytelling to develop global competence. We welcome up to 20 participants of a variety of language backgrounds and teaching experience for a two-week summer intensive program (90 hours) with academic year follow-up via our Language Roundtables (an additional 16 hours), for a total of 106 hours. We will support participants as they design lessons for a "Global New Jersey" theme, engage in micro-teaching, teach K-6 students in a local summer camp, and reflect upon those experiences. Participants will leave the program with the new knowledge, skills, and materials to use storytelling in their language teaching; teach a "Global New Jersey" unit designed to build global competence; and develop a long-term professional development plan. At the end of the program, they will belong to a year-long community of practice in which they can find support for their instruction and leadership development via a network of STARTALK-minded teachers.
