The DC Metro Urdu STARTALK Program will offer an exciting opportunity to 40 local middle and high school students to improve their Urdu language skills and their understanding of Urdu culture.

Instruction will integrate language, culture, and content, and students will improve their proficiency in all three areas by actively using their linguistic and cultural/content knowledge. The program will incorporate technology in a manner that enhances instruction and extends learning opportunities. We believe that we will be able to help accomplish this goal by offering a rich learning experience to our youth and in the process strengthening local networks and disseminating knowledge about effective teaching methods.

Our 2012 program was wildly popular, attracting 104 applications for 40 spots (which has prompted us to increase this year’s capacity). We will employ the theme “A Trip to Pakistan” to design and implement a meaningful theme-based curriculum. Our program will also have a special emphasis on integrating arts and crafts with language use. Last year we did several projects that were a hit among our students including one in which students decorated a painted Pakistani truck. Our site visitors praised this aspect of our program highly and we were invited by STARTALK to present on it during the 2012 post program conference.

We are hopeful that by preparing some of students for the county language proficiency exam and having support from the community and local leaders we could persuade school officials to consider introducing Urdu in local public schools. Considering the positive impact of art projects on students' language learning we will include the art project in our curriculum this year as well. We will hire an internationally recognized truck artist, Haider Ali to conduct workshops on the Pakistani truck art incorporated in our curriculum.
