Persian for Persians

Los Angeles, CA • Persian • June 22, 2009 July 31, 2009

This intensive six week course is for high school students who speak Persian at home and want to develop literacy and a deeper understanding of historical and contemporary Persian culture. The project-based curriculum will allow students to build academic proficiency in Persian, using culturally relevant themes as a vehicle for listening, writing, speaking, and reading tasks. Students will have access to individualized instruction and feedback. The course is the equivalent of one year of high school world language instruction. This class meets a need in language instruction for one of Los Angeles ’s largest language groups. The largest number of Iranians outside of Iran — an estimated 330,000 — have made their home in Southern California . This population remains committed to preserving its language and culture. However, Persian language is not taught in any Los Angeles-area school districts. A survey of college-level heritage language learners, conducted by the National Heritage Language Resource Center , indicates that most heritage learners of Persian have had minimal or no schooling in Persian.

Hindi for Heritage Speakers of Hindi

Los Angeles, CA • Hindi • June 29, 2009 July 31, 2009

This intensive six week course is for high school students who speak Hindi at home and want to develop literacy and a deeper understanding of historical and contemporary South Asian culture. The project-based curriculum will allow students to build academic proficiency in Hindi, using culturally relevant themes as a vehicle for listening, writing, speaking, and reading tasks. Projects will focus on developing academic skills in a content-based curriculum designed to impart cultural literacy. Students will have access to individualized instruction and feedback. The course is the equivalent of 1 year of high school world language study. This class meets a need for Hindi speakers, who have been underserved by world language instruction. A sizable Hindi speaking population lives in Los Angeles County and is committed to preserving its language and culture. However, survey data shows that most heritage learners of Hindi have had minimal or no schooling in the language, and that their reading and writing skills are often rudimentary or nonexistent. Their skill set is typical of many groups of heritage speakers, and their pedagogical needs are different from those of foreign language students. Their development in their home language must be nurtured by literacy.

Heritage Language Teacher Workshop

Los Angeles, CA • Arabic, Chinese, Hindi, Persian, Swahili, Turkish, Urdu • July 20, 2009 July 24, 2009

In today’s “foreign” language classes, teachers are faced with many students who are heritage language speakers. For these students, the target language is not foreign, but rather a home language whose development was interrupted by a switch to English. A typical heritage learner has grown up hearing the language and begins classroom instruction with measurable oral and aural proficiency but with few literacy skills. This workshop is designed to help language teachers better understand the differences between L2 and HL learners, and learn how to differentiate curriculum to address the range of skill levels present in HL classes. Participants will explore ways to design their own curriculum and select materials and assessment tools. They will learn how to start where the students are and involve them as ACTIVE participants in the learning process. The workshop will include information on how to research a heritage language community and create a community-based program. A grasp of demographic data will give teachers an advantage in teaching and promoting heritage language instruction in their own departments, institutions, and districts. The goal for the workshop is to develop a cohort of language teachers who will be leaders and mentors in heritage language instruction.
