Novices will design or adapt learning plan(s) and deliver a model leaning episode for volunteers (university students, LOTE student-teachers, graduate language instructors, and university staff). Specifically, they will a) specify the learning targets using can-do statements b) create a technology-based interpretive task with authentic materials using technology to make language, culture and/or content comprehensible to students, c) explore various programs that can be used to support interpersonal and presentational communication and d) participate in a practicum where they teach segments of a model lesson to volunteers. 4) Teachers in the Leadership and Technology Sessions will explore the use of platforms to facilitate professional development and language learning and create an online community to share materials and practices that foster continued interaction among participants.

    Summary

    ALEFE summer program “Celebrations of Arab Nations” is a 22 days summer camp intended to allow twenty heritage and non-heritage students to develop both their communication skills in Arabic and their cultural awareness about the Arab world. In a Montessori classroom set-up, students will be exposed to the various ways in which Arab nations celebrate three special occasions: weddings, mother’s day and baby showers. They will acquire new knowledge about the way these special occasions are celebrated in terms of food, costumes, social figures and family traditions. Through the study of the three celebrations, the program is to allow K-2nd grade students with limited or no proficiency in Arabic to interact using simple vocabulary and sentences to communicate with an authentic audience and to use their new acquired knowledge to create and present three mock celebrations themselves to others. Following the program’s 90 hours of instructions, students will be able not only to compare the similarities and differences between cultural practices in the US and in the Arab World, but to also realize how internally diverse an apparently monolithic culture could be.
