Iowa State U NFLRC offers 2008 summer STARTALK institute


We would like to share with you information about a StarTalk summer
institute, Mentoring and Leadership for K-12 Chinese Teachers, that
we are providing this summer at the NFLRC. This institute is designed
to expand leadership capacity in the profession by working
intensively with 12 practicing K-12 Chinese teachers, who have been
recognized as new leaders, to help them develop mentoring and
leadership skills. For more detailed information about the institute,
please read the "Letter to CLTA" that is attached.

We are encouraging state, regional and national organizations and
school districts, to consider paying the registration fee for a
teacher who would attend the institute in exchange for presenting a
conference workshop or session on mentoring and leadership.
Participants who represent organizations or school districts and
whose registration fee ($100) is paid by the organization or district
will receive special consideration in the selection process.

Please note that the application mailing deadline for this institute
is April 1, 2008.  The application form and a flyer about this
institute are available on our NFLRC website:
