    Summary

    Discover Russian is a four-week introduction to Russian language and culture course that will be offered by American Councils for International Education and Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJHSST) to 30 rising 8th-12th graders at TJHSST’s campus in Fairfax County, Virginia. The program fosters interest in Russian language and culture among students with and without access to Russian programs in their schools and/or communities by offering three class levels: Novice-Mid for those new to Russian and Novice-High and Intermediate Low for those with prior Russian language experience. Although placement will be determined by language proficiency and not age, differentiation will occur to accommodate students’ varying rates of learning and levels of maturity. Classes will meet seven hours each day for 18 days, for a total of 126 hours of immersion instruction. Participants in Level One will reach Novice-Mid level proficiency by the program’s end, while those in Level Two will attain Novice-High, and those in Level Three will reach Intermediate Low.

    Summary

    Arizona State University (ASU) will provide an intensive, 3-week, 4.5-classroom-hour/day, non-residential program in elementary Russian for 28 participants in grades 8-12 from Central Arizona, bringing them from proficiency 0 to Novice Mid in speaking, listening, and reading. STARTALK participants will work in small groups in intensive sessions designed and provided by the STARTALK team on the campus of ASU and, by video uplink, with the faculty, activity guides, and host families of the concurrently running Russian language program in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, in ASU’s Critical Languages Institute (CLI). Having STARTALK participants interact with CLI Russian students, in both domestic and abroad programs, is part of the larger strategy of academic mentoring intended to steer participants into the Central Arizona Russian Proficiency pipeline -- a network of high-school instructors and advisors, state university advisors and instructors, and CLI career and grant advisors who work one-on-one with participants to plot out pathways from STARTALK to high-school Russian, to NSLI-Y, to college Russian and CLS or CLI, to summer and semester-long study abroad with NSEP, Fulbright, or private funding, with the goal of supporting participants through to advanced or superior levels of Russian by the time they receive their BA. Bringing together faculty and staff from Arizona school districts’ Russian programs, ASU’s Russian program, and ASU’s summer intensive program at CLI, ASU’s Russian STARTALK program will serve as a hub for Russian instruction and Russian study-abroad programs in Central Arizona and the southwest.

    The proposed 19 day/90 hours program is designed for beginning (Novice Level) Chinese language and culture middle school students from diverse cultural backgrounds, but with a focus on recruiting and preparing Latino students to successfully learn Chinese. The curriculum centers on the theme of "A Rocket Ship Trip to the Moon" and focuses on providing non-heritage students with a content and culture-rich learning environment where they acquire essential Chinese linguistic functions and cultural features to explore our STEM/STEAM sub-theme and prepares them to perform at a higher level of confidence and competence when they enroll in a Mandarin course in middle or high school in the fall of 2018. The curricula will be delivered via interactive instructional strategies that engage students in the learning process and will be differentiated to address the diverse learning abilities and learning styles of the participants. Both formative and summative assessment strategies will be employed to assess student performance, including student self-assessment and the completion of group projects that demonstrate that the students can apply their new content knowledge and Chinese linguistic proficiency related to the fields of STEM/STEM to accomplish real-world tasks.
