Modern Languages

Summer Institute for Teachers of Italian

Held from June 27 to July 28, 2016, the Summer Institute for Teachers of Italian gives teachers the opportunity to re-energize their classes with new ideas while earning graduate credits. It also provides graduate and advanced students of Italian with intensive language practice and in-depth study of aspects of the Italian culture and society. A technology component helps participants to develop their computer and internet skills. 

In July 2016, this course is offered entirely online, with the support of CCSU’s Instructional Design and Technology Resource Center. 

Three or six graduate credits may be applied towards the M.A. in Modern Languages with specialization in Italian at Central Connecticut State University. They may be transferred to other graduate programs. Participants will have to inquire with the institutions transferring or accepting the credits. 

Participants are expected to have an intermediate-high/advanced-low command of Italian. They should be able to use the language for sustained periods of time on a variety of topics. All sessions having linguistic and cultural contents are conducted in Italian. All readings and authentic materials used are in Italian. The technology component of the program is conducted in English. 

ML 550 Intensive Studies in Modern Languages is a course offered exclusively as part of the Summer Institute for Teachers of Italian (SITI), an intensive study program specifically designed for current and prospective teachers of Italian. Instruction integrates language knowledge, cultural understanding, methodology and technology for the language classroom.
