A project within NCLRC, the Arabic K-12 Network is for teachers, administrators, foreign language professionals, researchers, parents and anyone interested in the teaching of Arabic K-12 in the U.S.

The Arabic K-12 Project has six activities specifically aimed at serving the Arabic language teaching community in the U.S.:

  1. Network of Teachers:
    The NCLRC is building a network of K-12 Arabic teachers in the U.S. through which teachers will be able to share materials, methods and discuss their experiences. The network will bring teachers together by organizing discussion groups and institutes on the teaching of Arabic K-12 in the U.S.
  2. Standards for Arabic:
    The NCLRC, the National Standards Collaborative, the American Association of Teachers of Arabic (AATA, http://web.wm.edu/aata/ ) and the National Middle East Language Resource Center (NMELRC, http://nmelrc.byu.edu/ ), co-sponsored the writing of Standards for Learning Arabic K-12 in the U.S. The Standards for Arabic Project is using the 5 C's to set standards for Arabic learning. It is available for purchase from the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (http://actfl.org ).
  3. Newsletter for Teachers:
    The NCLRC publishes the newsletter in Arabic and English and it is dedicated to the field of teaching Arabic K-12 in the US.
    You can download the last issues as of March 2007 here: Arabic version - English Version. Or you can see all the issues in the arabic-K12 site.
  4. Website for Teachers:
    The Arabic K-12 website in Arabic and English is designed to host the national network of K-12 Arabic Teachers, the Arabic K-12 newsletter, Arabic textbook reviews, job and funding announcements, links to other helpful websites and much more.
  5. Archive of Arabic Materials:
    This archive will benefit teachers who are looking for new materials to teach Arabic, and teachers who are researching how Arabic is taught in other programs.
  6. Summer Institutes for Teachers:
    Summer Institutes are of particular interest to Arabic teachers and they are held every year around the months of June and July.
