Arabic Teaching Fellows - STARTALK Program
Duties: Anne Arundel Community College is accepting applications for Teaching Fellowships in an intensive summer STARTALK Arabic program entitled "Launching into Arabic Learning and Teaching 2013” from June 10 – July 19, 2013. The Teaching Fellow component of the program is designed for high school and college instructors, graduate students and other degree-holding individuals who are interested in developing their Arabic teaching skills using ACTFL standards and STARTALK principles. The fellowship begins with a two-week intensive teacher training program in which fellows will work with more highly experienced Arabic instructors to collaboratively design, develop and deliver an intensive Arabic student program under the leadership of the STARTALK Director. The STARTALK student program, in which the fellows will complete teaching practicums, will begin at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD on June 24 - July 19, 2013, pending final approvals. The teaching fellows will be working with beginning Novice level Arabic and advanced Novice level Arabic students. Courses are heavily focused on the development of communicative Arabic language skills, so applicants must be able to demonstrate advanced proficiency in Arabic. The grant-funded program provides stipends for the teaching fellowship.
