2022 Language Instructor

CIEE Global Navigator High School Summer Abroad

 

Position:             Language Instructor

Department:     CIEE Global Navigator High School Summer Abroad Programs

Reports to:        CIEE Program Manager

 

Program Description

CIEE is offering four-week-long High School Summer Abroad (HSSA) Language & Culture programs at CIEE Centers around the world for U.S. high school students in the 2022–2025 graduating classes.

Our programs provide participants with a unique CIEE experience. Participants are immersed in the culture of the host country through 60+ hours of intensive language instruction, homestays, peer interaction and free time, cultural activities, and excursions.

The Language Instructor:

·       participates in weekly team meetings with other LC Instructors, Program Leaders, and CIEE Center Staff (e.g., Program Coordinator) to ensure instructional team is meeting program objectives,

·       delivers one level of 60 hours of instruction in the target language per session (3 hours/day, 5 days/week for 4 weeks each session)

·       *adapts the standardized curriculum and methodology to the host country culture and language and creates daily lesson plans (*sites with a non-standardized curriculum only: Arabic, German, Mandarin Chinese, and Japanese)

The HSSA Language & Culture curriculum is created specifically for CIEE high school language programs. Instructors will use the task-based, communicative approach to deliver daily lessons. This methodology falls outside of the realm of traditional, lecture-based instruction to promote meaningful, learner-centered communication in real-world tasks. Communication on diverse topics is both the means and goal of language study. The instructor will introduce participants to various aspects of the host culture through communicative tasks, games, hands-on learning, and frequent use of authentic materials and diverse participation strategies to get all students talking. The US-based CIEE High School Outbound team will train the instructors on the curriculum and methodology. All language instructors, with the support of local CIEE Center Staff, are responsible for providing a safe environment for the participants while they are in the classroom.

Each instructor will be partnered with a Program Leader, either a U.S.–based high school language teacher or a local hire, who is responsible for facilitating teaching moments outside the classroom during scheduled cultural activities. Program Leaders will lead by example, reinforce language skill development, engage students in staying in the target language, inspire participant curiosity, and manage the group during the day. 

The Program Leaders will deliver approximately 15 additional hours of instruction (Community Conversations) in the target language during the 4-week program. The Instructor and Program Leader will work together to ensure that the Community Conversations connect to the classroom lessons to create a dynamic, cohesive experience that meets learning objectives. The Program Leaders are expected to be in the classroom during the last 15 minutes of each lesson, Monday–Thursday, to observe the targeted language functions during the lesson Wrap-Up and then stay an additional 15 minutes to prepare students for their Community Conversation through a combination of modeling the language students will be using in the community, role-playing, and practice.

On Fridays, Program Leaders are expected to attend the last 90 minutes of class to facilitate a Reflection Journal Debrief in which students reflect on their experiences abroad and share insights. The Instructor will form two groups. Half the group will stay in the room with the instructor to share their weekly projects, allowing the instructor to assess students’ interpersonal or presentational speaking skills, while the other half meets outside the classroom in a Reflection Journal Debrief with the Program Leader. After 30 minutes, the groups switch. More information on this will be provided in the instructor training.

All CIEE High School Summer Abroad programs aim to facilitate intercultural, experiential opportunities from which the participants will gain understanding, acquire knowledge, and develop skills to live, and excel, in a culturally diverse world—CIEE’s mission. Please visit the High School Summer Abroad homepage for more information on our HSSA Language & Culture programs.
