Rosetta Stone will begin on Monday, September 24th.
I have spoken to the students about the goals for Rosetta Stone. Rosetta Stone Foreign Language based learning provides 2 essential needs for our students as we look to see them prepared for 21st century: Students receive practice in "Distance Learning." They get to see what it is like to learn using a computer program. (High Schools are doing that now for various college courses.) The second is to immerse the students in a foreign language and culture. We do not expect the students to master the language--just get a feel for the language and culture. They will have that opportunity for at least 40 minutes each week. They can use the computer lab, before school, after school, or at lunch time. We just need to know ahead of time if they need to use the lab. Be sure they have the head set with microphone with them. Five Below sells headsets w/microphone. The system recommends Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 (more expensive). They are sold on amazon.com
The students are NOT supposed to skip around. They begin on Level 1 and proceed through each Unit and lesson. A score of 90 or above should be reached before going to the next lesson. Hours are required to reach a 4, 3, 2, or 1 on the Report Card in World Language. The requirements for the First Trimester are:
- 4 on the Report Card--4 hours or above
- 3 on the Report Card--3 to 3.9 hours
- 2 on the Report Card--2 to 2.9 hours
- 1 on the Report Card--0 to 1.9 hours
- N/A--did not participate
All students of Grades 5, 6, 7, and 8 are set up for Rosetta Stone for the 2018-2019 school year. This will happen starting Sept. 24th. The student has the user name and password. User Name: Firstname_Lastname Password: Student ID.
