In this FREE two-week program, Chinese language teachers will learn about integrating culture and language instruction to achieve cultural learning in the classroom. 2017 STARTALK will utilize a blended model with four online and six face-to-face (residential) instructional days.
The goal of STARTALK Teaching and Assessing Chinese Culture and Language Authentically (TACCLA) is to improve participants’ ability to rethink their curriculum and instruction in ways that will enhance their students’ language proficiency levels while integrating elements of culture learning at the same time. This program will use proficiency-oriented principles of language teaching, which are aligned with the ACTFL standards. Participants will learn to identify and enact the characteristics of strong, contemporary approaches to culture teaching in proficiency-based instruction in U.S. classrooms.
