Hindi Through Current Affairs हिंदी की कुछ संज्ञाएँ – परिभाषाओं एवं उदाहरणों के साथ 

Posting a few #AuthenticResources in Hindi that are "Not made" for "TeachingHindi", but these are unique perspectives of #NativeSpeakersOfHindi as reflected in opinion sections of Hindi periodicals, or as presented through various print / video news media! 

This is as per STARTALK's learning principle: Adapting and Using Age-Appropriate Authentic Materials - "Teachers select authentic texts and resources appropriate for the theme and performance targets of the unit. Teachers plan how to make the texts and resources comprehensible and accessible to learners. Learners engage frequently with age-appropriate resources that are intentionally selected to appeal to the interests, preferences, and life experiences of members of the target culture." 

This is as per ACTFL's principles of 1) Relating Cultural Practices to Perspectives: Learners use the language to investigate, explain, and reflect on the relationship between the practices and perspectives of the cultures studied, 2) Acquiring Information and Diverse Perspectives: Learners access and evaluate information and diverse perspectives that are available through the language and its cultures, 3) Cultural Comparisons: Learners use the language to investigate, explain, and reflect on the concept of culture through comparisons of the cultures studied and their own, and 4) School and Global Communities: Learners use the language both within and beyond the classroom to interact and collaborate in their community and the globalized world. 

I hope this will provide you with valuable Hindi resources to present to your students presenting different viewpoints and prompting discussions, instead of presenting a set narrative to them! These resources will certainly extend the language of intermediate learners of Hindi to advanced level, especially at the high school and university levels.
