Global Language Project - Deepening Discourse: Language Learning Leadership

posted by Assistant Principal Landivar

We believe that learning a world language is no longer a luxury; it is a necessary skill that students must have in order to compete in a global economy.

Deepening Discourse is a yearlong series of professional development opportunities designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of K-12 world language teachers.

During the 2018-2019 school year, we will enroll a cohort of 40 teachers. The full year program will include four full-day workshops and five webinars, led by nationally recognized instructors of world language teaching such as Nathan Lutz and Jennifer Eddy; as well as their peers.

Teachers in the series have the opportunity to impact their own practice and to make an impact on other teachers by actively strengthen the network of language teachers in New York City.

Admission

For the 2018-2019 school year, 40 applicants will be admitted to the full series. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Once accepted, there is a one-time registration fee of $500 for the entire year. Application fee includes breakfast and lunch each workshop day. If your application is received before July 15th you will receive a discounted rate of $450. See detailed program schedule @More Information

Linkable Wins! - Honorable Mention @ The Virtual Enterprise Pitch Competition 2018

posted Jun 7, 2018, 9:24 AM by Assistant Principal Landivar

7th and 8th Grade Eagle Scholars won an HONORABLE MENTION @THE VIRTUAL ENTERPRISE PITCH COMPETITION 2018 
Their original app "Linkable" looks to connect people from around the world. All of Mr. Ramos' students worked very hard (through lunch breaks and afterschool) to prepare.  Please congratulate Mr. Ramos and all of our Young Men for GREAT WORK! 
VIRTUAL ENTERPRISE
The idea of an office simulation can be traced back to the 17th Century.  In Europe, simulated practice firms have been established for many years as places for commercial training.  Since World War II, however, these simulated offices have evolved into a practical vehicle for interdisciplinary instruction and an in-school work experience.

After visiting practice firms in Vienna, Austria in 1994, the New York City High School Superintendents spearheaded the development of practice firms (virtual enterprises) in seven New York City public high schools. The year was 1996. Today there are 66 firms in fifty-three high schools within New York City, with many more in the planning stage. The New York City Department of Education is proud to have pioneered this concept in the United States.
