    Summary

    UPDATED INFORMATION FOR 2021 PROGRAM COMING SOON!

    The STARTALK Multi-State Pathways to Teaching Demonstration Program focuses on closing the gap for heritage school teachers by creating a Personalized Learning Plan (PLP) to earn state certification in order to be placed during the 2020-2021 school year in a K-12 public school classroom as an alternative entry or provisionally licensed teacher. This teacher training program seeks to recruit and support up to 50 prospective teachers in eight languages to address the critical need for K-12 language programs in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia, as well as across the Southeast and throughout the United States. The Demonstration Program design includes 70 hours of instruction delivered online and face-to-face in four phases through a variety of learning experiences: Phase 1 the Pre-Institute (6 hours over a one-month period), Phase 2 the Summer Institute (54 hours over 8 days), Phase 3 the Post-Institute (10 hours over a seven-month period), and finally Phase 4 the Extended Institute (additional individual work to complete certification requirements as outlined in each participant’s PLP). This program will focus on ensuring that teachers are prepared to meet the licensing requirements of the state where they will be teaching and enter the classroom as effective educators with the skills to plan, deliver, and assess instruction using the STARTALK Principles.
