The 2017 STARTALK funds will guarantee continued Arabic culture and language learning opportunities at Bell and Hamilton high schools (levels I and heritage speakers, grades 7th through 12th). The program will offer 60 students the opportunity to receive Arabic immersed instruction of 90 hours (75 hours of face-to-face and 15 hours) asynchronous learning model enhanced through technology, visual and performing arts from July 6th, 2017 to August 2nd, 2017. The goal of the program is to increase oral and written proficiency by one sub-level on the ACTFL Proficiency Scales (Arabic I NM-NH, Heritage IH-AL). We anticipate that approximately 90% of our Level I, and heritage students will continue in our 2017- 2018 academic year to increase enrollment in Arabic I and Arabic III Honors programs offered by the two schools.
