    Summary

    YingHua STARTALK Teacher Program is an intensive 12-day training program designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of teachers of Mandarin Chinese. Participating teachers of varying levels of expertise, experience, and preparedness, learn to incorporate World-Readiness standards, immersion and inquiry-based learning principles in their teaching, and continue to advance their understanding of Startalk-endorsed principles and techniques. The key components of the program involve two types of learning: direct teaching by highly-qualified instructors known for their expertise in the field of world language education, and hands-on teaching and re-teaching experience in close collaboration with the YingHua Startalk Student Program. Participants will design and deliver lessons first to peers and then to real-world students, receiving immediate feedback from peers and instructors on their lessons, which they will then revise and re-teach with higher quality. This focus on the reflection and refinement process will provide participants the opportunity to develop skills they can implement in their classrooms in the real world immediately or as soon as the fall.

    Summary

    The Rutgers Chinese Teacher Leadership Academy is a two-week, 80-hour intensive program in which pre- and in-service Chinese teachers will engage in professional development focused on literacy and online instruction. During the academic year, program participants are invited to the Rutgers Chinese Round Table, where Chinese language teachers engage in a monthly, supportive community of practice. As part of the program, Chinese language teacher participants engage in two two practicum settings: an online program for high school students and an elementary FLEX program. At the end of the program, teachers will be able to:

    plan learning experiences that support the STARTALK principles and World Readiness Standards for Learning Languages;

    differentiate instruction
    (planning learning experiences that address the students' unique needs), especially in terms of literacy
    development; use a variety of learning tools to support performance objectives (in face-to-face and online contexts);

    routinely use internal and external assessment data to modify the learning experience; and

    grow as reflective practitioners.
