With great enthusiasm and highest expectations, THE STRATFORD PUBLIC SCHOOLS WORLD LANGUAGE/ESOL DEPARTMENT Welcomes you to our District Programs and Classes! We are very pleased to offer the rewards of foreign language study as part of each child's comprehensive education. Every student has the opportunity to benefit from a wide variety of individual study areas, which combine to contribute to a lifetime of intellectual growth, productivity, satisfaction, and well-being. Why study foreign and classical languages? "Foreign language instruction should be a part of every child's education. A language is more than sounds and syntax: it is a culture, a way of thinking, and a perspective on the world. Each language is a precious resource that must be studied, used, and preserved precisely because a language opens the mind to new possibilities. The study of language is the study of life, literature, history, and thought. It is nothing less than the study of our world and ourselves." Former Secretary of Education, Rod Paige Research has shown that foreign language study: Enhances cognitive development, creativity, higher order thinking skills and academic achievement. Strengthens first language proficiency and improves memory, listening, and all communicative skills. Engenders positive attitudes toward linguistic and cultural diversity. Improves standardized test scores and casts favorable light on college admissions. Incorporates 21 st century learning skills to prepare students for success in our ever-evolving workplace. Expands career opportunities in today's competitive, global, and increasingly technological society.
How do we accomplish all of this? By combining the 5 C's of World Language study: Communication - Culture - Connections - Comparisons - Communities with the 7 Cs of 21 st Century Learning: Collection of Information - Collaboration - Communication - Creativity - Critical Thinking - Character - College and Career Preparation How can we accomplish all this? By being attentive, adventurous, cooperative, communicative, creative, expressive, industrious, meticulous, perceptive, reflective, respectful, technological, tolerant, and sensitive! Foreign language study challenges the mind, spirit, and body simultaneously and unlocks the world!
Our secondary curriculum offers sequential courses in Spanish, French, and Latin. French and Spanish represent the 2nd and 3rd most influential modern languages in the world after English. Latin is their ever-present foundation stone and source of abundant cognates and linguistic treasure. Course levels typically run 1-5 AP/ECE with Honors credit in Spanish 2-3-4, French 2-3-4, & Latin Middle school Fr. or Sp. students may register for level 2 courses in 9th grade or elect Latin 1. Students wishing to learn a language not available may apply to the Southern CT Language & Cultural Exposure Program, which is affiliated with Yale University. All courses feature modern texts with ample supporting instructional and technological materials including new wireless, portable language labs and Rosetta Stone programming.
For a complete description of course offerings, please access our district's web site. "Because the study of language and culture is inextricably intertwined, students of language and culture are better equipped to communicate with people in other cultures in a variety of settings, to look beyond their customary borders, and to act with greater awareness of self, of other cultures, and their own relationship to those cultures." National Standards in Foreign Language Education Project

el 25 de noviembre de 2012 Estimados Padres, I am pleased to announce the launch of a new “Wikispaces” website for all levels of Spanish students at Second Hill Lane School, Kindergarten through Sixth Grade. Wikispaces is a website used only for educators, levels Kindergarten through college. The incorporation of technology across all disciplines is critical to developing 21 st century learning skills, and essential to preparing students for future studies in their second language. The newly designed website is optional or may be used for enrichment. It can be found at It is an exciting opportunity for me to be able to include, share, and use the very latest in educational technology with my students. I will use “secondhilllanespanish” periodically in class as a teaching tool, but the primary goal of the Wiki is to create a learning community for my language students and extend the classroom to the home, including involving all families in our studies! In addition, the 4th grade literacy books are available for listening and pronunciation practice, as well as the 6th grade ¡Exprésate! (our textbook) website links that will allow for easy student access and practice that is aligned with class quizzes and tests. I invite you to visit the “Wiki”, and encourage your son or daughter to review or practice the different themes we are studying in class as we move through the curriculum and academic year. Wikispaces is a safe educational site, but as with all technology parent supervision is recommended. Welcome to our new “Wiki” ☺ ! Sinceramente, Maestra P.D. Our Wiki link is posted on the Second Hill Lane Elementary School website, in the drop down bar “Departments & Staff”, then “Staff Biographies and Websites”, “maestra” Ms. Murano.http://secondhilllanespanish.wikispaces.com

The Five Themes of Geography is part of the 6th grade Social Studies curriculum and I thought each grade level could use the 5 themes to report on their country or continent. The five themes are location, region, place, movement and human-environment interaction.
