World Language

The goal of the 7th grade World Language Program is to develop strong comprehension skills using TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling). Students are exposed to comprehensible input on a daily basis through storytelling and reading. Mini novels are used to provide repetitions of high frequency vocabulary and introduce culture. As students become confident in the target language, they are provided opportunities for production through class discussions and timed writings.

Students are exposed to comprehensible input on a daily basis through storytelling and reading. In the 8th grade World Languages Program students build upon their previous knowledge. Novels focus on acquisition of the past tense (preterite/imperfect) and explore different countries and cultures. Classes are conducted in the target language and the students begin to speak extemporaneously in conversation with the teacher.
