By the end of the program, the teacher participants will be (1) familiar with the ACTFL World-Readiness Standards, STARTALK principles, and TELL Criteria, (2) know how to implement these standards in the classroom, and (3) be able to self-assess standards-based teaching practices. The program will focus on ensuring that teachers in the teacher certification track are prepared to meet the licensing requirements of Georgia and enter the classroom as effective educators, and teachers in the professional leadership track will be prepared to take a leadership role in their teaching community.
