Dr. Jane He (Teacher Education and Higher Education) received new funding from the Department of Defense National Security Agency for the project “STARTALK: Integrating Content, Culture and Language for Student Wellbeing.”

The program offers 90-hour professional development for 15 K-12 Chinese teachers from public, private, and heritage language schools in North Carolina. Participants will collaborate in the design and delivery of STEAM-infused Chinese language lessons through a STARTALK student program and be prepared to use STARTALK principles and TELL framework to design standard-based, content, and culture-enriched Chinese language lessons in K-12 settings. In addition to online training and teaching experiences through the STARTALK student program during the summer, participants will have the opportunity to participate in the follow-up coaching and reflections in the fall semester.
