Heritage Language Teacher Workshop

Heritage Language Teacher Workshop
July 16-20, 2012

The UCLA National Heritage Language Resource Center and STARTALK will offer a 5 day summer workshop for heritage language teachers. The workshop is open to instructors at all levels (K-16), including community schools, public and private.

This workshop is designed to address issues at the heart of heritage language teaching, including the differences between teaching L2 and HL learners, differentiated instruction, learner strategies, assessment, using the 5 Cs in heritage instruction, and more. Workshop participants will create and present a final group project for their language.

There is no charge for the workshop. A limited number of stipends will be available to cover travel and accommodations for out-of-state and non-local participants.
