Startalk Teacher Training Program 2009: Arabic and Persian

New York, NY • Arabic, Persian • July 6, 2009 July 17, 2009Residential Session

This intensive two-week residential program provides basic theoretical knowledge and entry-level teaching skills of current and prospective school, community, and college teachers with native or near-native command of Modern Standard Arabic or Persian. It is based on a course curriculum from NYU’s Master’s in Foreign Language Teaching. It trains participants in developing students’ Arabic or Persian proficiency across the three communicative modes (interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational) and the five C’s, as outlined in the Standards for Foreign Language Learning. Participants learn the most-up-to-date methodologies and develop, observe, and critique classroom procedures, strategies, and teaching techniques. They learn how to use community resources and how to select and use Internet materials. The program delivers 50 contact hours of classroom instruction. Every session consists of an interactive presentation of theoretical frameworks and practice. Outcomes include each participant’s portfolio and the materials and lesson plans in it. Participants receive an NYU transcript. The grant covers $700 per person out of the $920 continuing education tuition. Two scholarships are available for graduate tuition. The grant also covers accommodations in NYU residence halls, breakfast, lunch, and required textbooks.
