- Franklin High School, Somerset, NJ
Sangam-Franklin STARTALK Hindi Language and Culture Program 2018, a three week language immersion program, aims at improving literacy skills and cultural experience of 40 rising six to ninth graders of diverse backgrounds. 2. The overarching theme of 'Storytelling', is divided into three sub themes of 'Personal and Family Stories', 'Cultural Stories about Animals and Birds' and 'Contemporary Stories About Role Model', will prepare students communicate in culturally appropriate manners, describe familiar and some unfamiliar real life situations in simple language, read and write simple texts in Hindi and reflect upon their thoughts and ideas in appropriate contexts. 3. The program goals and learning episodes are outlined in the program curricula for two levels-Novice and Intermediate-based on the ACTFL proficiency guidelines and the World Readiness Standards for Language Learning. 4. We will use visual based authentic material for developing our lesson goals and learning episodes to be implemented in learner-centered classrooms through the process of gradual release of responsibilities from the instructor to students. 5. A combination of online and onsite learning plan will be implemented during the post program period from September 2018 to February 2019.
