Welcome to NOVA STARTALK 09 Week Two

Program Description
NOVA STARTALK is a summer institute in its third year designed to help teachers integrate technology tools and 21st century language pedagogy in the Arabic and Chinese curricula. Arabic and Chinese teachers in each language will create a collection of activities to expand the curriculum presently in place. The networking that has resulted from this course in the two past years has enriched instruction and created a bond between teachers who have worked in teams in and out of our STARTALK setting.
