    Summary

    The 2018 University of Utah Portuguese Startalk Teacher Training program is a four-day residential experience offered to 28 Portuguese dual language immersion teachers in the state of Utah. During 40 hours of instruction, novice and intermediate teachers will gather from eight elementary schools and five secondary schools to learn the best practices of dual language immersion and work on improving existing curriculum in grade level teams. Participants will specifically focus on (1) unpacking grade-level language arts standards and World Readiness Standards for Learning Languages, (2) writing daily learning objectives for both content and language, (3) using the Counterbalance method for improving language accuracy, and (4) scaffolding instruction of written language proficiency using authentic materials from Brazil. As a result of this training, teachers will be able to impact the instruction of as they: (1) design and deliver culturally-relevant instruction that is standards and proficiency based; and (2) improve both oral and written communication of students in terms of accuracy and fluency. The materials produced during the training will be be used with 2000 Utah students currently enrolled in Portuguese dual language immersion and countless future students to come both in the state and across the country as a national resource for Portuguese language learning and immersion.

    Summary

    The four-credit graduate-level course, entitled “Second Language and Immersion Methodologies for STARTALK Teachers of Critical Languages,” is a 10-day residential program hosted by Concordia Language Villages in Bemidji, Minnesota, and takes place on the campus of Bemidji State University (BSU).
    The course consists of 80 instructional hours, not including informal discussions and personal reflection, and focuses on key concepts of immersion education and active participation in all aspects of language and culture programming at the Language Villages. STARTALK teachers learn and practice: a) strategies for staying in the target language in both formal and informal instructional settings; b) formative and summative Standards-based assessments of students’ communication skills and cultural understandings; c) content-based teaching strategies, with emphasis on the environment, drama and music; d) integrating culture into the teaching of language; and e) meeting the needs of diverse learners. A perennial highlight of our program is several visits to our youth Language Villages in session at that time, where participants observe class concepts put into practice.

    Participants receive tuition, room & board, four units of graduate credit from Concordia College and up to $500 of travel-expense reimbursement, all for free, thanks to the STARTALK grant.

    Enrollment is limited to 15 participants, so register today by completing the attached application form or going to http://www.concordialanguagevillages.org/adult-programs/educator-program... .
