The Rutgers Chinese Teacher Leadership Academy is a two-week, 80-hour intensive program in which pre- and in-service Chinese teachers will engage in professional development focused on literacy and online instruction. During the academic year, program participants are invited to the Rutgers Chinese Round Table, where Chinese language teachers engage in a monthly, supportive community of practice. As part of the program, Chinese language teacher participants engage in two two practicum settings: an online program for high school students and an elementary FLEX program. At the end of the program, teachers will be able to:
plan learning experiences that support the STARTALK principles and World Readiness Standards for Learning Languages;
(planning learning experiences that address the students' unique needs), especially in terms of literacy
development; use a variety of learning tools to support performance objectives (in face-to-face and online contexts);
routinely use internal and external assessment data to modify the learning experience; and
grow as reflective practitioners.
