    Summary

    Arizona State University (ASU) will provide an intensive, 3-week, 4.5-classroom-hour/day, non-residential program in elementary Russian for 28 participants in grades 9-12 from Central Arizona, bringing them from proficiency 0 to Novice Mid in speaking, listening, and reading. STARTALK participants will work in small groups in intensive sessions designed and provided by the STARTALK team on the campus of ASU and, by video conferencing, activity guides and host families of the concurrently running Russian language program in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, from ASU’s Critical Languages Institute (CLI). Having STARTALK participants interact with CLI Russian students, in both domestic and abroad programs, is part of the larger strategy of academic mentoring intended to steer participants into the Central Arizona Russian Proficiency pipeline -- a network of high-school instructors and advisers, state university advisers and instructors, and CLI career and grant advisers who work one-on-one with participants to plot out pathways from STARTALK, to high-school Russian, to NSLI-Y, to college Russian and CLS or CLI, to summer and semester-long study abroad with NSEP, Fulbright, or private funding, with the goal of supporting participants through to advanced or superior levels of Russian by the time they receive their BA. Bringing together faculty and staff from Arizona school districts’ Russian programs, ASU’s Russian program, and ASU’s summer intensive program at CLI, ASU’s Russian STARTALK program will serve as a hub for Russian instruction and Russian study-abroad programs in Central Arizona and the southwest.

    Summary

    Our 2019 program theme is "Global New Jersey," in which we focus on using storytelling to develop global competence. We welcome up to 20 participants of a variety of language backgrounds and teaching experience for a two-week summer intensive program (90 hours) with academic year follow-up via our Language Roundtables (an additional 16 hours), for a total of 106 hours. We will support participants as they design lessons for a "Global New Jersey" theme, engage in micro-teaching, teach K-6 students in a local summer camp, and reflect upon those experiences. Participants will leave the program with the new knowledge, skills, and materials to use storytelling in their language teaching; teach a "Global New Jersey" unit designed to build global competence; and develop a long-term professional development plan. At the end of the program, they will belong to a year-long community of practice in which they can find support for their instruction and leadership development via a network of STARTALK-minded teachers.
