    Summary

    LARC-SDSU will offer a four-week (non-residential) Arabic, Chinese, Dari, and Persian STARTALK summer program for 10 heritage students in each camp (total 40) from July 10th to August 4th, 2017. These programs will be available to students in grades 9-12 with at least advanced (oral) and intermediate (reading and writing) levels of proficiency.
    Through a thematic curriculum and content-based instruction, students will learn about the history of their native country. This immersion program will increase students’ speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills by at least one sub-level. The program will also enhance students’ cultural competence in their heritage language and culture. While teachers facilitate the classes, students will be active participants who must take ownership of their learning. Through the use of authentic materials, they will conduct research and demonstrate their understanding through in-class discussions, presentations, writing summaries, and developing portfolios.
