Summer programs for immersion teachers

February 3, 2016

These are from CARLA, the Center for Advanced Research on Language Acquisition at the University of Minnesota.

If your program is new, it’s a great place for staff and teachers to get the basics. And if your program’s been around for awhile, the new workshop on character literacy (i.e. how to get kids reading in Chinese) is really exciting.

You can see more about this highly respected program at the link below. If your district can’t afford to send teachers, this would be a good one for parents to fund raise for!

Summer Institutes for Immersion Teachers

CARLA also offers these popular institutes that are designed specifically for immersion educators (K–12) and immersion program leaders:
