    Summary

    The Gonzaga University Startalk Chinese Program provides instruction in Chinese to novice learners, both true beginners and students with some prior proficiency in Chinese. The program will be divided into two sessions, one for elementary school students and one for middle and high school students. To make the classroom activities relevant to students and motivate them in their learning, each session is organized around a theme; the theme for the elementary school session is “My Family, Your Family,” and the theme for the middle & high school session is “My Homestay in China.” By the end of the program, students in the elementary school session will be able to speak about themselves and their family members, and to interact with others to exchange information about the topic of the family. Students in the middle and high school classes will be able to conduct daily interactions in the language, such as meeting and greeting others, introducing themselves, and exchanging information about their likes and dislikes, their family, their school, their friends and their city. There will be 48 contact hours (42 contact hours for the elementary school session) and the program will last for three weeks, from June 19 to July 7, meeting five days per week, from 9am - noon (on Thursdays the middle and high school classes will run until 2pm). There is no class on the July 4 holiday. In addition to language-learning, there are cultural activities including singing, arts and crafts, games and cooking. Students in the high school program are eligible to participate in an on-line continuation class after the face to face component ends. For high school students who are interested, we will help you petition your high school to receive high school credit for the session.

    Summary

    The Fayette County Public School District’s 2017 STARTALK Chinese Summer Program will provide 50 instructional hours via a 2-week summer program for 120 district students (rising grades 1 – 6) who are currently studying Chinese language in district schools as well as native/heritage speakers in those grades.
    Expected outcomes include 1) students will sustain and/or improve their language proficiency levels (novice – intermediate); 2) students will increase their knowledge of and experience with Chinese culture; and 3) student experiences will help build interest among other students to participate in school-year Chinese classes and future STARTALK programs.
    The program will result in an increase in the number of students studying Chinese throughout the secondary grades and eventually at the postsecondary level, strengthening the K – 16 pipeline.
    Participating students will develop a more global view of their community, an appreciation for other cultures supporting the district’s mission of creating a collaborative community that ensures all students achieve at high levels and graduate prepared to excel in a global society.
    The program will also engage parents in actively supporting the district’s Chinese language program, which may play a critical role in the district continuing to fund it in future years.
