  • Fairfax County, VA

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. Students will improve their proficiency in Urdu language and culture through a curriculum based on the most current, innovative, and effective teaching methods. The program will also strengthen students’ ties with the local and international Urdu community and it will help to disseminate information about fun, engaging, and effective teaching methods throughout the local community. Instruction will be based on the theme “A Trip to South Asia.” Our aim will be for students to learn to carry out a variety of real-world tasks at a performance level of half above their incoming level. 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.

DC9 Metropolitan Urdu Center presents the second year of our fun and educational Urdu Summer Class! This opportunity is available to 50+ local elementary to Middle school students around the DC Metropolitan area. During the program students will improve their Urdu language skills, familiarity with Urdu culture, and social studies and art-related content knowledge through an engaging curriculum firmly grounded in STARTALK-endorsed effective teaching principles. The program will also strengthen students’ ties with the local Urdu community and will support the community in its goal of establishing a more sustainable Urdu program. 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.

Northern Virginia is home to a large and vibrant Urdu-speaking community that is enthusiastic about maintaining its language and culture. And we offers a colorful celebration of Urdu and the diversity of Pakistan. The DC9 Urdu STARTALK Program will provide instruction to 50 upper elementary, middle, and high school students, based on the theme “A Trip to Pakistan.” In addition to providing another quality learning experience, we also aim to further mobilize the community around the goal of establishing a more regular and sustained Urdu program in our community. This year we are adding an advanced level class to our program and are planning to prepare our students for the Fairfax County Credit Exam for World Languages. 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.
