Mandarin teacher workshop, July 23-27 in San Francisco

March 20, 2012

NOTE:  This program is designed  for “newer” Chinese teaches. From our previous programs, many participants had less than 3 years teaching Chinese language teaching experience. And, teachers with more experiences also benefited from this program. Again, it is open to all Chinese teachers.


Dear Friends,

The Mandarin Institute STARTALK Chinese Teacher Preparation Program 2012 registration is now open. It is an unparalleled opportunity for newer Chinese language teachers and teachers who are new to teaching in US classrooms, to gain concrete classroom experience teaching American students. For qualifying teachers the tuition fee will be waived and consideration for travel stipends will be given.

Participants will engage in daily workshops led by master in-service instructors addressing issues such as teaching in the target language, immersion teaching skills, differentiated instruction, integrated performance assessment and classroom preparation. This program emphasizes “hands-on” training and enables participants to practice what they learn in authentic American classrooms with REAL students. Each micro-teaching opportunity will be followed by in-depth debriefing sessions. Critical communication skills will be learned through interaction with REAL school administrators, teacher peers and parents.

Register now before seats are full!

Program Dates: July 23 -27, 2012
Time: 9:00AM – 4:00PM
Location: Chinese American International School

Contact: Benson Zhao (415) 861-0966
