Arabic Teaching Fellows - STARTALK Program

The fellowship begins with a two-week intensive teacher training program in which Teaching 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 23 - July 18, 2013, pending final approvals. The Teaching Fellows will be working with beginningNovice level Arabic and mid-Novice level Arabic students.
