The Second Language Studies Program and the Department of Linguistics & Languages at Michigan State University are pleased to offer a STARTALK synchronous online workshop on language-assessment development for teachers of Arabic and Russian. The workshop runs June 7 to 30, 2021, with follow-up components during the 2021-2022 academic school year. By the end of STARTALK CLAP, teacher participants will be able to identify best practices in foreign language assessment, fully implement online assessment tools they developed in the workshop, communicate effectively with students and other stakeholders (for example, parents, supervisors, administrators) concerning assessment processes and results, and share their assessment instruments with colleagues and other instructors of Arabic and Russian.
STARTALK CLAP is open to teachers of Arabic and Russian who will be teaching in U.S. middle schools (6th grade or above), high schools, community colleges, colleges, or universities during the 2021-2022 academic year. U.S. citizenship is not required: teaching Arabic or Russian in the USA is. Apply here!
Program participants receive a full scholarship, which includes:
- All course materials mailed in a bound packet to you at your home address, to arrive at least one full week before the workshop starts June 7, 2021.
- One graduate-course credit from Michigan State University, which is transcripted and transferable.
- Names of the STARTALK CLAP teacher-participants will be listed here!
