We will be utilizing the Voces Digital curriculum this year, emphasizing grammar, vocabulary, and the cultures of the Spanish-speaking world. Voces isn't your average textbook. It's more than a textbook: it's games, videos, audio, and recording - it's dynamic! To develop beginning-language competency, students will utilize the four language skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing). Students will listen and speak in whole and small groups, write original Spanish texts and read from various authentic texts. There is an introductory section for each unit or chapter.
The Turkish Language is offered to 8-12 grade students. It is offered year-long for all levels 1, 2, and 3. Students in Turkish classes start learning Turkish fundamentally to introduce themselves to advance information exchanges. Throughout their Turkish Language experiences, students learn the Turkish language and practice their Turkish knowledge in authentic ways.
American Sign Language (ASL)
American Sign Language (ASL) is offered year-long for all levels 1-3. The curriculum is based on ASLDeafined and is a user-friendly program to review vocabulary videos using the hands and complete assigned activities from various lesson(s). Deaf Culture and the use of grammar will be used throughout the course. A very dynamic program, so it does not include textbooks at all. ASL has all its resources for students to master the language and understand Deaf culture from a Deaf person’s perspective. Each lesson includes an introduction, vocabulary, grammar, reading, and quizzes. Most of the time, a new vocabulary unit is shared in the classroom with the teacher’s teaching moment before using the website.
