Montana Arabic Summer Institute for Students

Missoula, MT • Arabic • June 22, 2009 July 17, 2009

The University of Montana (UM) proposes to host a second Montana Arabic Summer Institute (MASI) for high school students. The target students of this four-week non-residential institute will be rising junior and senior high school students from seven schools in Missoula and surrounding areas. The goal is for 30 students to develop basic knowledge and competence to enroll and excel in undergraduate Arabic courses after graduation. The objective is for the students to acquire the communication skills of a novice-mid/novice-high speaker based on ACTFL’s levels of proficiency. Each week will offer four hours of classroom instruction for four days, and outside activities on the fifth day. Classroom instruction will integrate the four language skills and cover Arabic letters and sounds, basic grammar, days of the week, vocabulary, practice writing, etc. Outside activities will comprise cultural events and field trips to gain a more authentic understanding of Arab culture. Students get five college credits upon completion. A seasoned team of veterans will return for MASI 2009. It includes Dr. Mehrdad Kia, the Principal Investigator and Program Director; Mr. Samir Bitar, Outreach Coordinator and Lead Instructor; Dr. Khaled Huthaily, Curriculum Developer and Lead Instructor; and Mr. Brian Lofink, the Program Manager.
