    Summary

    The 2019 Kean Teacher Program is designed for heritage, native or non-native speakers of Hindi or Urdu at the Advanced-Mid Level or higher that have 2 or more years experience teaching in heritage language schools, in STARTALK Programs and/or have previously attended NYU STARTALK Teacher Training Programs. The blended learning program will enroll 5 Hindi and 4 Urdu teachers in credit-bearing graduate coursework in partial fulfillment of the requirements leading to a Master’s Degree in Hindi and Urdu Language Pedagogy. Teachers will pursue 4.5 credit hours of onsite pedagogy coursework while concurrently engaging in clinical observation and practice during the Kean Student Hindi/Urdu Summer Program. They will then pursue 6-credit hours of content, theory and pedagogy online coursework as part of the Extended Teacher Program. Program outcomes include: acquisition of pedagogical knowledge and skills (contemporary, research-based instructional methods and assessment practices) through summer onsite courses that include integration of content, theory and pedagogy into clinical practice in the Student Program and acquisition of content (language, literature and linguistics) through extended online courses. Credits earned in graduate courses may be used to fulfill licensure requirements or to pursue Alternate Route Certification Programs offered in most states.

    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.
