UW 2013 STARTALK Russian Student Program Application Form

The STARTALK Student Program, "Russian in the Sky and in Outer Space", aims to enroll 20 high school Russian heritage students in a four-week intensive language program. The program combines the history of the most important events of space exploration with that of aircraft design and the language of science and technology. A content-based component STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) is woven into this program through a partnership with the Museum of Flight. Students’ various interests are further addressed by a range of projects above and beyond the STEM topics, such as linguistic and a digital story research projects. Students will be introduced to language self-assessment and goal setting through LinguaFolio Online. They will be able to earn five UW credits by enrolling in RUSS 499 and also have an opportunity to complete the ACTFL OPIc (Oral Proficiency Interview computer-based) and WPT (Writing Proficiency Test). High school students may be able to use these results in order to receive high school credit for proficiency. All students will receive placement results for future study of Russian at the UW. Please register now if you are interested. UW Summer Quarter Registration Fee for the Student Program is $42. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS FORM MUST BE FILLED OUT IN ONE SITTING. YOU WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW YOUR RESPONSES PRIOR TO SUBMISSION; HOWEVER YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SAVE A PARTIAL APPLICATION AND RETURN TO COMPLETE IT.
