We will recruit 100 students in grades K - 12 from Springfield Public schools and neighboring communities to participate in our 2019 Startalk Chinese Summer Immersion Camp if funded.
A team of 9 instructors and 9 teaching assistants will instruct campers over 15 schools days of 6 hours each for a total 90 instructional contact hours with the support of director, IL, administrative assistant, technology support specialist, and martial arts expert.
A pre-program baseline assessment will be used to determine students' prior knowledge for the appropriate placement of students.
While students in grades 6 - 12 will participate in the online LinguaFolio assessment system, a culminating student performance activity for ALL students will serve as a summative outcome indicating mastery of math content and skills, as well as knowledge of language and culture.
