    Summary

    This program provides two two-week sessions for up to 15 total teachers to learn to deliver instruction and assess student learning in a standards-based instructional program at the K-12 level. The classes are five days a week, seven hours a day (84 total hours of direct instruction), and also include a Modified Oral Proficiency Interview (MOPI) or Integrated Performance Assessment two-day training workshop during the middle weekend. The outcomes of the program will be found in an e-portfolio and include: a micro-teaching lesson in the co-located student program, a reflective journal on participants’ learning and classroom observations, a final paper detailing student progress and trainees’ teaching, and an understanding of the importance of “backward design” and how it leads to better learning for students. These outcomes help to increase the sustainability of these educators in the classroom during regular year/academic year programs; the skills and knowledge that they gain in this program are directly transferred to the co-located student program and also to their teaching during the academic year. Many teachers return to the program as a way of continuing their professional development because every year we differentiate the courses according to the expressed needs and wishes of previous participants.

    Summary

    YingHua Startalk Student Program is a Mandarin Chinese and Chinese culture program good for 36 incoming 3rd to 9th grade students, with diverse socioeconomic, ethnic, and linguistic backgrounds and various Chinese proficiency levels ranging from Novice Low to Intermediate mid. Student participants will be actively engaged in 3 weeks of face-to-face, standards-aligned, science-oriented, culturally-enriching, and fully-immersed and theme-based learning opportunities, followed by 8 weeks of twice-weekly meetings after school, and 4 months of online learning. Beyond the Program, student participants can choose to remain engaged with the vibrant learning community from YingHua International School. Special marketing attention will be focused on the underprivileged areas such as Franklin Park, Somerset, NJ, to ensure that students who have not been exposed to Chinese learning, who are outside of community-based weekend language schools and well-funded high school language programs, are able to benefit from the Startalk program. Strong pedagogical leadership, well-crafted curricular design, the expertise and experience of teachers, together with a low student-teacher ratio, will guarantee the high quality of YingHua Startalk Student Program.
