Brooklyn BRICK STARTALK Urdu Program

Urdu
  • August 3, 2015August 21, 2015: Program segment (face-to-face)
  • Brooklyn Dreams Charter School, Brooklyn, NY

Brooklyn Rebuild Immigrant Communities & Knowledge ( BRICK ) is this the organization who will be sponsoring the program. BRICK is planning to offer a 15 days program in learning Urdu in conjunction with the diversity of Pakistani culture and society. We aim to serve about 60 number of middle- and high-school students recruited from the local communities of Kensington and Midwood. These neighborhoods are located in the epicenter of a growing Urdu-speaking immigrant population, which is one of the fastest-growing in New York City, with between 20 – 40 % growth in the past 10 years. There is a strong demand in the community and school district for Urdu programs that can use the heritage language to develop language and critical thinking skills, foster communication between parents, children and community members, and promote respect for diversity and self esteem. Improving heritage language skills creates effects beyond language acquisition, positive identity development, improved family relations, and decreased acculturate stress. We have selected the theme of “Our Stories, Our World” to provide a way to integrate language learning with learning from family and community, learning about Pakistan’s diverse cultures and history, and learning through using technology and creating art.

Chinese
  • July 6, 2015July 24, 2015: Program segment (face-to-face)
  • The New Century School, Baltimore, MD

This program aims to provide meaningful, motivating, and cultural Chinese experiences to elementary-age learners. The key priority is to increase students' Chinese language proficiency and desire to continue learning. Our student-centered, theme-based, and backward-designed program, “STARTALK: China in Baltimore,” teaches Chinese language and culture via a curriculum based on a central question: What if Baltimore city became a city in China, Shanghai perhaps? What would students need to get around? What kind of food would they be exposed to? Where could they go visit and how would they get there? These among many other questions will be answered throughout our summer program. Students will also get the opportunity to experience a taste of China. Students for "STARTALK: China in Baltimore" will prepare authentic Chinese food and eat food authentic to local Chinese cities. They will also explore the local Baltimore area with the mindset that they are in a Chinese city. Through exposure to these types of activities students will have the chance to compare American and Chinese culture. The urban location of The New Century School (historic Fells Point) is an ideal place for students to experience diversity in culture and a wealth of city landmarks.

The NYU StarTalk Immersion Training Program for Teachers of Chinese (K-6) for pre- and in-service teachers of Chinese is designed to give teachers an essential understanding of the theory and best practices and of Chinese immersion and FLES education. The core of the NYU StarTalk Immersion Training Program for Teachers of Chinese (K-6) is the summer course “Teaching Foreign Language to Elementary School Children” (FLES). Follow-up fall training sessions will concentrate on immersion education. Participants may choose from 2 strands. The first strand offers a 50% scholarship to participants who wish to earn 3 graduate credits in FLES education needed for certification extension. The second strand is a non-credit version of the course, which will be offered with full scholarship. Both strands will participate in a series of fall workshops focusing on Chinese immersion education.
