    3 Skilled Chinese Teachers Needed for Children (ages 6 – 9) for a STARTALK Build Your Dragon Boat Chinese immersion summer camp 

    July 23 – August 3, 2012

    The STARTALK Build Your Dragon Boat Camp of the Verona Area International School (VAIS), a Chinese-immersion public charter school in Fitchburg, Wisconsin (near Madison), will serve up to 44 students in grades 1-3. The camp will run from July 23 - August 3, 2012. The immersion camp will provide students the opportunity to polish and build Chinese language skills and enjoy hands-on activities while learning about the history and cultural significance of dragons and the Dragon Boat Festival. During camp student will design and build a buoyant, small-scale dragon boat. Chinese will be the language of communication throughout the full two weeks of camp. All student participants will begin with a novice-low to novice-mid Chinese-language foundation. Native speaker students are also welcome.

    The Build Your Dragon Boat Camp is the student portion of a combination teacher/student STARTALK program. During the week prior to camp, Chinese teachers will be receiving for-credit training from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in K-12 immersion teaching techniques, focusing on integration of language, content, and culture. This training will provide teachers, or those who want to become Chinese language teachers, with a critical opportunity to focus on CSL teaching approaches in a content-based immersion classroom. The Build Your Dragon Boat Camp will serve as a practicum for the second and third week of the teacher program. 

    To successfully complete their dragon boats, students will need to work both individually and in groups to make decisions regarding designing, building, and decorating involving the content areas of math, science, social studies, language arts, and art. Students will be encouraged to communicate with the teachers and classmates in Chinese as much as possible. Teachers will conduct all interactions in Chinese unless not possible for comprehension/safety. The teachers will use repetition of words and concepts, reinforcing material with visual/auditory/tactical props and gestures as well as hands-on activities.

    We are hiring three native Chinese speakers with experience teaching Chinese to young children, preferably in an immersion setting. Hourly rate ranges from $19-$26 per hour.

    1. Lead Instructor
    This person will be in charge of the overall content of the camp and serve as the teacher in the second / third grade room. He/she will also help develop the curriculum for the camp. The development team will consist of the Program Director, the Lead and Second Instructor, Arts & Materials Coordinator, and parent volunteers. All instructors and curriculum planners will complete the STARTALK Online Curriculum Design Guidelines tutorial. The focus will be to ensure that all aspects of the curriculum align with the program goals. 

    2. Second Instructor
    The Second Instructor will provide input to the Curriculum Development Team and will serve as the teacher in the first grade room.

    3. The Teaching Assistant
    The Teaching Assistant will float between the two classrooms, help with daily lessons, and mentor the teacher participants.

    For more information please visit the VAIS website: http://www.vaisverona.org/summer-camp/ or contact the Program Director, Ms. Mayo, phone 845-4293 or send an email to amanda.mayo@verona.k12.wi.us

    Upper School Mandarin Teacher

    The Blake School seeks to hire a dynamic and engaging part-time Mandarin teacher to teach in the Upper School (grades 9-12) and to work collaboratively and develop curricula with the Mandarin staff. The ideal candidate will have experience with and enthusiasm for interacting cross-culturally, a strong desire to work with high school students and demonstrated interest and skills in curriculum development and Mandarin pedagogy.

    At Blake, our language classes typically have 14-16 students at the Middle School and Upper School levels. Because Mandarin was first introduced into the Blake curriculum in 2006-07, the upper level classes have been providing these students with small group instruction at the more advanced level, perhaps in anticipation of the AP in Mandarin Language. Many courses throughout the School (Pre-kindergarten through 12 grade) include content related to China and Chinese history or literature. It is our hope that the teacher would be eager to collaborate with other colleagues to enrich the learning for students in other disciplines or divisions, as well.

    The Blake School is a pre-kindergarten through grade 12, co-educational, nonsectarian, independent day school enrolling 1,380 bright, talented students from nearly 56 Twin Cities-area communities. Founded in 1900, The Blake School has the advantage of three campuses (Minneapolis, Hopkins and Wayzata) each with its own facilities designed for specific ages, schedules and activities. The mission of the school is to provide students with an excellent, academically challenging education in a diverse and supportive community committed to a common set of values. For more information on The Blake School, please visit Blake's Web site at: http://www.blakeschool.org.

    The Blake School believes that a diverse society enriches all individuals and communities. Diversity of race, ethnicity, national origin, geography, religion, gender, affectional or sexual orientation, age, physical ability, and marital, parental or economic status forms the fabric of our society. As a result of these beliefs, The Blake School actively seeks students, families and employees who value and contribute to the fullness of a diverse community within the context of its mission. In doing so, we recognize our responsibility to help make each person's experience a success.

    Send cover letter and resume to Joni Starr, Personnel Assistant, The Blake School, 110 Blake Road South, Hopkins, MN 55343 or via email to . Letter(s) of recommendation and unofficial transcripts are welcome, but not required at the initial stage of the hiring process. EOE
