About this Course

Very often Arabic language teachers find themselves needing content knowledge to teach certain subjects in Arabic.

The online portion of the class will provide lectures on various subjects and thereby increase teachers’ repertoire of knowledge, confidence, and quality of instruction. It will also help teachers to understand the connection between teaching the Arabic language through teaching subject matter. This will allow teachers to integrate real and meaningful topics in the process of teaching Arabic.This year, the STARTALK CLASSROAD program will strengthen your Arabic language teaching skills by enhancing your knowledge in a wide variety of topics that are relevant to the Arabic language. In order to do so, we will focus on Content Based Instruction, a method that is often used to teach second and foreign languages. We will focus on how to teach the language through various topics such as literary texts, proverbs, music, and more. The online course will also focus on the Content-Based Instruction method.
