Vision for World Language
Having our students be prepared to be active members of a global community, we as teachers know how important it is for students in Renton to acquire new languages. I support our teachers through sharing professional practices around language instruction and research-based best practices. In addition, I support learning about new and innovative methods of language instruction which support all learners.
Language teachers in the Renton School District use aspects of the ACTFL proficiency guidelines as the core of our standards. We focus on the four areas of language learning; reading, writing, listening and speaking, and use a variety of texts that strive to meet the interests of the students. Through our use of research-based methods of instruction, we make our classrooms active and engaging places for students to acquire languages.
