    Summary

    The 2018 University of Utah (UU) Portuguese Startalk student program is an exciting opportunity for 30 rising seventh-grade Portuguese immersion students in Utah to push past the limitations of their classrooms and see how advanced levels of Portuguese language proficiency can open new doors for college and career readiness. A primary goal of the program is to provide the antidote to student attrition in dual language immersion programs, which commonly occurs as students move from the elementary to secondary school, by providing them with exciting ways to apply their growing language fluency to new subjects – in this case the Amazon, biodiversity, human rights and environmental issues. The program will feature three weeks of blended learning with 60 hours of Portuguese instruction and collaboration nestled between 30 hours of online, distance-learning curriculum. Students, including both heritage and non-heritage Portuguese speakers, will enter the student camp primarily at the intermediate-low proficiency level. During the camp experiences, student participants will engage in advanced-low discourse as they research issues of biodiversity, human rights, and environmental protection; compare and contrast Brazilian and American culture; discuss and debate controversial topics; and write informational essays and present group projects related to the Amazon Rainforest.

    Summary

    The 2018 University of Utah Portuguese Startalk Teacher Training program is a four-day residential experience offered to 28 Portuguese dual language immersion teachers in the state of Utah. During 40 hours of instruction, novice and intermediate teachers will gather from eight elementary schools and five secondary schools to learn the best practices of dual language immersion and work on improving existing curriculum in grade level teams. Participants will specifically focus on (1) unpacking grade-level language arts standards and World Readiness Standards for Learning Languages, (2) writing daily learning objectives for both content and language, (3) using the Counterbalance method for improving language accuracy, and (4) scaffolding instruction of written language proficiency using authentic materials from Brazil. As a result of this training, teachers will be able to impact the instruction of as they: (1) design and deliver culturally-relevant instruction that is standards and proficiency based; and (2) improve both oral and written communication of students in terms of accuracy and fluency. The materials produced during the training will be be used with 2000 Utah students currently enrolled in Portuguese dual language immersion and countless future students to come both in the state and across the country as a national resource for Portuguese language learning and immersion.
