Learning Through Languages Research Symposium

December 8, 2016 @ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm

 

hs-symposiumThe Learning through Languages Research Symposium is a unique way for High School students to conduct and present research in their language of study. In teams of 2-3, students will write a research paper on a topic related to one of five regional research tracks. They will then create a project visual and present their research to UNC and Duke faculty and language instructor judges in their target language on December 8, 2016 at UNC-CH.  Eligible students include Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish students, including heritage speakers at Level III or higher.

The objectives of the Learning through Languages Symposium are for high school students to:

  • Learn about a topic of significance to a world region in which the target language is spoken.
  • Engage in cooperative learning with a team.
  • Produce informational writing aimed at a particular audience.
  • Utilize public speaking and presentation skills in the target language.

This program is designed to promote student learning in the areas of research methodology, technology literacy, and critical thinking and to encourage the learning of new academic vocabulary.

Register Student Teams by October 24, 2016 here!
