Help me give my students the opportunity to practice their listening and speaking skills in our world language class with the cyber acoustics stereo headsets.
My students, mainly Hispanic and African-American are all receiving free and reduced lunch.
Despite a lot of barriers, they are hard-working, resilient, smart, intelligent, touching and unique.
In our school, they will become articulate communicators in English and Spanish through our Dual Language Immersion Program with opportunities to extend to a third language: French, Italian, Japanese…Our mission is to make our students the leaders of tomorrow by including global awareness and social justice in our curriculum.
Our students are taught to voice their opinion on global issues using higher forms of thinking.
However, to express themselves, they must be able to communicate. Communicating in a world languages class involves oral comprehension and verbal expression. No matter their level – beginning, intermediate or advance- they must practice those two skills deeply and consistently.
Practicing a meaningful oral comprehension daily requires a minimum of equipment like a set of headphones (with mic for verbal expression) for individual task and speakers for the group task.
Every week, in my French class, my lesson plan incorporate the practice of listening and speaking at least twice.
While we do listening and speaking activities as a whole group, it is very difficult to adapt to the various levels of performance.
Having my students practicing their listening and speaking skills individually through websites like Edpuzzle and Canvas allow me to differentiate the activities according to each student's level of performance without incommoding anyone.
However, when we have to share one set of 20 headphones between 3 or 4 classes in the best case scenario, it becomes very challenging to install a routine which would promote growth in the 2 most challenging skills in the practice of a foreign language.
In the same vein, the white boards help me to create engaging activities with easy checking for understanding. I use them for multiple choices questions, for dictation, for small group reflection.
