    Summary

    The STARTALK Arabic Academy at Penn State is an ambitious, multifaceted program for 20 high school and college students to take an introductory college course in Arabic. For 4 weeks (June-July), a multinational instructional team provides instruction in Arabic for 5.5 hours daily Monday through Thursday, an additional 2 hours of afternoon immersion twice a week, and 4.5 hours on Friday, for a total of 113 available instructional hours. Upon successful completion, students earn 4 Penn State credits (one semester of college Arabic).
    Through student-centered, task-based, and communicative activities, students will become acquainted with Arabic cultures and learn to communicate in Arabic. Starting with no prior knowledge of Arabic, students will reach novice-mid or novice-high level.

    Summary

    This professional development program, designed for 10 current and prospective teachers of Arabic at middle school, high school, and post-secondary levels, uses a three-part blended learning structure: (1) an initial 3-week online component (estimated 20 hours' instructional time), June 1-21; (2) a 6-day residential seminar (48 instructional hours), held at Penn State's University Park Campus, June 24-29, during which the teachers participate in teaching high school and college students who are taking an introductory Arabic course at Penn State; and (3) a postseminar online component (estimated 7 hours), July 8-13 ; for 75 hours total. The broad outcome at which we aim is to contribute to the national effort to expand instructional capacity in critical languages, including Arabic. Specific outcomes are to enable teachers to teach Arabic effectively according to STARTALK-endorsed principles––our special focus is on staying in the target language while maintaining comprehensibility; to ensure teachers' awareness of resources that can support them in doing so; and to enhance their preparedness for careers teaching Arabic. We will present pathways to certification and other career options.

    Summary

    OneWorld Now!’s vision is that all young Americans have access to transformative international education. Through our year-round, Seattle-based Global Leadership Program, we integrate critical language learning, leadership training, and study abroad scholarships with a focus on minority and low-income high school youth. Thanks to STARTALK, OWN has offered a three-week Arabic, Chinese, and Korean summer program for each of the last ten years, with follow-on language classes available through the OWN academic yearlong program. In our twelfth year offering the STARTALK summer immersion program, we will hold another three-week-long, non-residential Arabic, Chinese, and Korean language immersion program for non-heritage high school students in Seattle. The program includes 15 six-hour days, for a total of 90 contact hours. The desired outcome of the STARTALK-OWN Summer Language Camp will be to introduce 51 students to Arabic, Korean and Mandarin Chinese, and to motivate them to continue their language and cultural studies.

Sixteen hours in the Leadership Program and twenty-four hours in the Technology Program will be delivered online. The face-to-face segment will be three days for Leadership Program and four days for Technology Program. The Leadership program is by invitation. Participants in the leadership program will create curricular maps and/or a thematic using social justice/global issues as an organizing principle. During the intervening year, participants will pilot materials and modify them based on program needs and interactions with their students. Technology Sessions will be offered for teachers at various levels of proficiency. Technology Sessions will be offered for teachers at various levels of proficiency. 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

    The four-credit graduate-level course, entitled “Second Language and Immersion Methodologies for STARTALK Teachers of Critical Languages,” is a 10-day residential program hosted by Concordia Language Villages in Bemidji, Minnesota, and takes place on the campus of Bemidji State University (BSU).
    The course consists of 80 instructional hours, not including informal discussions and personal reflection, and focuses on key concepts of immersion education and active participation in all aspects of language and culture programming at the Language Villages. STARTALK teachers learn and practice: a) strategies for staying in the target language in both formal and informal instructional settings; b) formative and summative Standards-based assessments of students’ communication skills and cultural understandings; c) content-based teaching strategies, with emphasis on the environment, drama and music; d) integrating culture into the teaching of language; and e) meeting the needs of diverse learners. A perennial highlight of our program is several visits to our youth Language Villages in session at that time, where participants observe class concepts put into practice.

    Participants receive tuition, room & board, four units of graduate credit from Concordia College and up to $500 of travel-expense reimbursement, all for free, thanks to the STARTALK grant.
