OVERVIEW

Original Description
OPERATION WORLD LANGUAGE (OWL) AIMS TO INCREASE THE AVAILABILITY AND USE OF WORLD LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION TO SUPPORT ACADEMIC SUCCESS AND POST-GRADUATION OPPORTUNITIES IN DISTRICT 49. TO ACCOMPLISH THIS GOAL, D49 WILL BRING A SPANISH DUAL LANGUAGE IMMERSION PROGRAM TO POTENTIALLY BE HOUSED AT REMINGTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. RESEARCH HAS SHOWN THAT CHILDREN WHO ARE BILINGUAL AND BILITERATE DO BETTER ACADEMICALLY THAN THEIR PEERS WHO SPEAK ONLY THEIR NATIVE LANGUAGE. PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT IS INCORPORATED TO ENSURE THAT THE HIRED TEACHERS ARE FLUENT AND COMFORTABLE WITH THE SELECTED CURRICULUM. TO TRULY SERVE THE NEEDS OF OUR COMMUNITY, MULTIPLE LANGUAGE OFFERINGS ARE THE LONG-TERM GOAL FOR SUSTAINABILITY, AFTER THE SUCCESSFUL IMPLEMENTATION OF SPANISH, THROUGH COLLABORATION WITH OUR STAKEHOLDERS. IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT ONCE STUDENTS HAVE ACQUIRED THE SKILL OF A SECOND LANGUAGE, THAT SKILL MUST BE FOSTERED IN A RIGOROUS MANNER. TO COMBAT POTENTIAL LEARNING LOSS, SECONDARY STUDENTS, POTENTIALLY HOUSED WITHIN HORIZON MIDDLE SCHOOL, WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO CONTINUE WORLD LANGUAGE LEARNING THROUGH MULTIPLE DISCIPLINE CLASSES BEING OFFERED IN THAT TARGET LANGUAGE. THIS NEW OPPORTUNITY PROMOTES THE DEVELOPMENT OF BILITERATE STUDENTS THROUGH THE INCORPORATION OF WORLD LANGUAGE ACROSS EDUCATIONAL CONTENT AREAS. ACTIVITY PARTNERSHIPS WITH UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO, COLORADO SPRINGS WILL SUPPORT WORLD LANGUAGE USE IN SPECIFIC CAREER FIELDS. ADDITIONALLY, THE PROJECT ADDS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SUPPORT TO SECONDARY TEACHERS THAT CURRENTLY TEACH WORLD LANGUAGE. SECONDARY STUDENTS WILL THEN BE ENCOURAGED TO WORK TOWARDS A SEAL OF BILITERACY, THROUGH ADVANCED ASSESSMENTS AND APPLICATION OF THE TARGET LANGUAGE, WHICH WILL INCREASE THEIR OPPORTUNITIES FOR POST-GRADUATION.
