Description: The Standards for Foreign Language Learning in the 21st Century and principles of second language and immersion pedagogy serve as the framework for this four-credit graduate level course. A residential program designed for K-16 teachers of Arabic, the participants will enhance their understanding of best practices in teaching Arabic through participation in language learning groups and activities at Al-WaHa, the Arabic Language Village of Concordia Language Villages. The STARTALK teachers will spend the first week of their program in a series of workshops and discussion groups with the staff members of the Arabic Language Village, learning and sharing teaching strategies advocated by Concordia Language Villages. The Arabic staff and STARTALK participants will then welcome villagers between the ages of 8 and 18 to Al-WaHa for a week of language learning activities prepared for them during the first week of the STARTALK program. Content-based instruction will be highlighted in the program with discussions facilitated by guest presenter, Dr. Shereen Tabrizi The seminar will be led by Dr. Salah Ayari, Director of the Arabic and Asian Language Office at Texas A & M University. Dr. Ayari has worked with Concordia Language Villages for the past six summers as the lead instructor for the STARTALK Arabic Teacher Program. He was a lead designer of the Arabic Language Village curriculum. Donna Clementi, Director of Education and Research at Concordia Language Villages, will serve as the program director. Four graduate credits will be awarded for successful completion of the course.
