The StarTalk funded Chinese Dragon's Math Maze - Building Community through Kindness Program will enable approximately 102 children from the City of Springfield and some surrounding communities to receive introductory as well as ongoing instruction in Chinese Language and Culture from grades K- . The program will run daily from 8:30 to 2:30 for 15 days, for a total of 90 instructional hours.
A pre-program, baseline assessment will determine students' prior knowledge and will be used for appropriate placement of students. While 6th, 7th, and 8th, and 9th graders will participate in the online
Lingua Folio assessment, a culminating student performance activity for ALL students will serve as a summative outcome indicating mastery of math content and skills, as well as knowledge of language and culture.
