    Summary

    The 2019 Kean Teacher Program is designed for heritage, native or non-native speakers of Hindi or Urdu at the Advanced-Mid Level or higher that have 2 or more years experience teaching in heritage language schools, in STARTALK Programs and/or have previously attended NYU STARTALK Teacher Training Programs. The blended learning program will enroll 5 Hindi and 4 Urdu teachers in credit-bearing graduate coursework in partial fulfillment of the requirements leading to a Master’s Degree in Hindi and Urdu Language Pedagogy. Teachers will pursue 4.5 credit hours of onsite pedagogy coursework while concurrently engaging in clinical observation and practice during the Kean Student Hindi/Urdu Summer Program. They will then pursue 6-credit hours of content, theory and pedagogy online coursework as part of the Extended Teacher Program. Program outcomes include: acquisition of pedagogical knowledge and skills (contemporary, research-based instructional methods and assessment practices) through summer onsite courses that include integration of content, theory and pedagogy into clinical practice in the Student Program and acquisition of content (language, literature and linguistics) through extended online courses. Credits earned in graduate courses may be used to fulfill licensure requirements or to pursue Alternate Route Certification Programs offered in most states.

    Summary

    We typically receive upwards of 100 or 150 student requests for every StarTalk program due to our regular year long weekend Urdu classes, and Indus Arts Council's promotion of Pakistani arts, culture and languages in Houston and beyond.
    We have settled on a target number of 50 students as a reasonable goal, given our desire is to have a large enough program to demonstrate that there is a significant demand for Urdu in our area and formally pursuing Urdu instruction collectively is a worthwhile and attainable goal.
    The proficiency level for our students is Novice mid to Intermediate low. The program is 3 weeks long with 90 instructional hours.
    Currently with four instructors and four junior instructors, we will be able to offer four sections of Urdu instruction in which the average class size will be 12 to 13 students and the teacher-to student ratio (including junior instructors, who will be actively involved in instruction) will be approximately 1 to 6.
    This class size will offer students a quality learning experience and the potential to develop a sense of community and belonging with their peers. Participants will also take part in theater (performed in Urdu) and take part in music/songs in Urdu to a live audience.
