The 2018 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 culture, technology, and social media from July 16, 2018 to July 18th , 2018. 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 IM-IH). We anticipate that approximately 95% of our Level I, and heritage students will continue in our 2018- 2019 academic year to increase enrollment in Arabic I and Arabic III, and IV Honors programs offered by the two schools.
