    Date(s)
    • June 24, 2019 – July 20, 2019
    Location(s)
    • Middlebury College, Middlebury, VT
    Program Setting

    Residential

    Summary

    The program accommodates 16 teachers of Russian working at the middle/high school and the college level with minimal or intermediate-level of experience. Over the course of 20 days (90 instructional hours), which are split between the on-line and on-site parts, the participants will acquire and/or expand the knowledge and understanding of basic tenets of second language acquisition and proficiency-based pedagogy, as well as practice the application of newly acquired concepts in real classroom. As a result of the program, the participants will become more efficient teachers of Russian, able to demonstrate such fundamental teaching skills as planning a lesson and a unit using backward design principles, providing comprehensible input, maximizing target language use, providing gradual and timely release of responsibility, administering performance-based assessment, and providing appropriate feedback. Importantly, the unique feature of the program, i.e., Russian-only environment of the Middlebury Summer School, will contribute to maintenance and improvement of the participants’ Russian language skills.. By engaging in reflexive practices throughout the program, participants will develop as thoughtful practitioners capable of reflecting and analyzing their own work and drawing lessons for future improvement.
