    Summary

    This one-week 40-hour program is designed for experienced teachers of all STARTALK languages. Eligible participants will have had successful experiences in STARTALK and other similar world language professional learning programs and 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. It is expected that they will have a solid understanding of the STARTALK-Endorsed Principles for Teaching and Learning Languages, World Readiness Standards for Language Learning and substantial experience in applying the principles and concepts featured in these documents into effective classroom practices. 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. 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 presentation, 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 censuses 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.
