    Summary

    The target audience for the 75-hour long, four-week online and two-day on-site blended Portuguese Teacher Training program (PTT) is fifteen K-16 teachers of Portuguese with a minimum of one-year of teaching experience. They need not to have any background in Portuguese as a pluricentric language or intercultural communicative competence, but ideally should strive to deliver student-centered instruction and predominantly teach in the target language. The goal is to provide opportunities for teachers of Portuguese to integrate research-based best practices into their language teaching, learn to reflect critically on their own performance, engage collaboratively with colleagues to develop effective teaching strategies, and to recognize, analyze and compare different cultural practices from the Portuguese-speaking world. As the program addresses pluricentrism it also trains teachers to facilitate their students’ acquisition of intercultural communicative competence.

    Summary

    "What Do You Know about Traditional Chinese Medicine?" will be the theme of our 2017 three-week, 120 hours, student’s Chinese program for forty-two (42) grades 4-12 learners in northern New England with learners' proficiency from novice-low to intermediate-mid at Husson University, Bangor, Maine. For the summer 2017, the Bangor Chinese School will continue to provide both new and tested teaching strategies and student learning experiences. Students will gain the four skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) in a learning environment featuring language "immersion". BCS now offers to provide a year-nine of instruction and learning experience in which students will take part in standards-based, student-centered language and culture immersion, thematic organized learning with target language and advanced educational technology. The goal of the learning process is to move each student 1-2 proficiency levels up by the end of the program. It is also the intention of BCS to expand learning experiences for students outside the classroom, including opportunities for students to communicate with Chinese counterparts/friends through the Internet, including, Skype and WeChat which has been done very successfully in the past eight (8) years. All master teachers of student program are required to participate in the BCS STARTALK teacher program to ensure the teaching quality of the student program. It is hoped that following the program the participants and their families will be motivated to continue pursuing on-going language-speaking and cultural opportunities to enrich their own knowledge, and promote the ancient and rich Chinese heritage, allowing better understanding and effective diplomacy with that area of the world, be prepared to be able to compete for global jobs, manage multicultural colleagues and collaborate on global teams. Simply stated, if we are to face the challenges of the future with confidence, we must start now, using ACTFL standards and STARTALK principles, in building a cadre of young Americans who comprehend, speak and read this lovely, ancient and "critical" world language.
