I was so pleased to read the article and editorial on the StarTalk program at Howard Community College. A few weeks ago I visited Cheryl Berman, the director of the program, and had the opportunity to sit in on some of the languages classes for about an hour. What an encouraging experience it was to observe these students truly learning Arabic, Farsi, Mandarin, Hindi and other languages. Just think of the possible positive impact on our planet. Hats off to HCC and our talented, hard-working students.

Students take note: The classroom of the future might make it difficult to pass notes or sit where teachers might not call on you to answer questions.

They have worked with Michigan-based office furniture manufacturing company Herman Miller to create a pilot classroom that is changing the way students and teachers approach instruction.
