Summer Intensive Teacher Training Program 2011
June 13 – 24 at New York University
The NYU STARTALK program offers two intensive teacher training workshops—one in Hindu and Urdu, the other in Arabic, Dari, Persian and Turkish.
These are intensive, ten-day residential workshops designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of current and prospective school, community, and college teachers of Arabic, Dari, Hindi, Persian, Turkish or Urdu. Participants learn the most up-to-date, standards-based teaching methodologies and are required to develop, observe, and critique classroom procedures, strategies, and teaching techniques. The programs include a cultural component in which participants learn how to use the resources available in the community environment. Classrooms are equipped with audio-visual equipment and classes are held on New York University's campus in New York City’s Greenwich Village neighborhood.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until April 5, 2011, or for as long as space is available.
