The Providence Day School (PDS) Chinese Teacher Program is a face-to-face non-residential 70 hour intensive teacher training program. It is designed as a comprehensive introduction to current research-backed practices in Chinese language teaching and Second Language Acquisition (including the STARTALK-Endorsed Principles for Effective Teaching & Learning) through practical, hands-on learning experiences. Teacher participants will learn from a team of experienced world language teachers and teacher-trainers as well as work collaboratively with peers to experience, interpret, discuss and apply best practices in world language instruction. They will participate in a variety of activities designed to equip them with new tools to deliver more effective student-centered lessons in their classrooms. As their final product in the teacher training program, each teacher will create a collection of culturally-rich, student-centered lesson plans and accompanying materials to take back to their yearlong classrooms.
