Startalk for Schools of the Future 2012

Chinese • July 16, 2012July 26, 2012
  • White Knoll High School, Lexington, NM

Providing a STARTALK program in Chinese for students is a fantastic opportunity for Lexington One to offer the students and families in our community a first-hand look into how and why learning Chinese will not only enrich their learning but also help them become more globally competitive. We will offer one, 8 day program to 80 students in grades 7-12. Our goal is to increase awareness of the Chinese language and culture, creating in these students an interest in continuing their learning of the Chinese language in high school. Ms. Joa He, a local Chinese teacher, is very excited about the opportunity to collaborate and plan with the world language coordinator and the World Languages Schools of the Future task force in Lexington One on this project. This task force consists of teachers, parents and administrators who are planning for language learning opportunities for our students that will give them the opportunity to learn language through tasks in the 3 modes (interpretive, interpersonal and presentational) using innovative 21st century skills, strategies, social media and technology that make communication real and purposeful.

University of New Mexico Startalk Summer Program in Arabic

Arabic
  • July 13, 2015August 7, 2015: Program segment (face-to-face)
  • The University of New Mexico, University of New Mexico, NM

The UNM STARTALK Program promotes awareness of the Arabic language and Middle Eastern and North African Cultures among Albuquerque high school and first year college students entering UNM. Encompassing a month long period of instruction, it gives students and incoming freshmen from the Albuquerque region the equivalence of a first semester course in Arabic at the University of New Mexico. The UNM Summer STARTALK Program partners with the UNM National Studies Program in order to foster a learner-centered environment that permits students to engage in the various conversation types, thus accentuating the diverse media and information systems in which language occurs. Furthermore, the program allows students to discuss in Arabic contemporary issues of vital concern with their peers and targeted speakers. More germane to the Southwest, students see the complexities of language by making direct and indirect comparisons between Arabic and their own languages (English, Navaho, and Spanish, etc.) Most importantly, studying Arabic in the summer program allows the student to fully engage in the life of the mind and to begin the journey towards becoming life-long learners.
