South Asia Without Borders Seminar

Musharraf Ali FarooqiBabar Ali Fellow, Harvard South Asia Institute

From Story to Book (Kahani Se Kitab Tak) is a graduated reading program to introduce Urdu classical literature and folklore to native language speakers, and offer a new language testing system using electronic resources like the Urdu Thesaurus (http://www.urduthesaurus.com). The same content can be used to develop a better understanding of South Asian culture for young audiences around the world. The content will be available in local languages and English. SAI fellow Musharraf Ali Farooqi, who has designed the program, and conducted a successful pilot project at an International Baccalaureate certified school in Lahore, Pakistan, will describe the plan for the staged implementation of the Kahani Se Kitab Tak program, and how testing mechanisms will be adapted to the learner’s level without compromising the program content.
