Episode 15 – AP and CE Courses

Our first episode about advanced world language classes focused entirely on the IB programme.  This time around we discuss Advanced Placement and Concurrent Enrollment courses.

 

For our German teachers out there, since resources are so hard to come by, below are some links to help you:

As we find more German resources for the AP exam, we’ll add them to the list.

Episode 13 – International Baccalaureate

Join us in a discussion about the IB programme in general and here at Clearfield High School.

This is our first dive into the many ways students are able to obtain college credit for work done in high school.

Episode 11 – Avant Assessment !

Wow!  Welcome to episode 11 where we had the wonderful opportunity to sit down with David Bong, CEO and co-founder of Avant Assessment.  We use the STAMP test within Davis School District for many of our students.

Join us for some great insight into how the STAMP test is created, scored, and used.

Episode 10 – Competency Based Education

This episode dives in to a state pilot that Davis School District will begin implementing this next school year where World Language students will not advance in to the next level of class based on seat time, but their advancement up through the levels will depend entirely on their proficiency and ability with the language.  This is a huge undertaking and we will most likely have multiple episodes to help everyone better understand what this will entail.

Today we are joined by Bonnie Flint, our district world language supervisor, and the principal for Clearfield High School, Chris Keime.

Episode 9 – It’s Data, Don’t Take it Personally

In this episode we explore the results of IPAs and assessments in general, and talk about the right and wrong way to approach data.

Episode 8 – Anatomy of an IPA

Join us as we talk about what an Integrated Performance Assessment, or IPA, is and how we have started using them as our district mid and year end assessments.  We’re still figuring things out but what benefits our students is beneficial for us to implement.  It’s all about them, right?

Episode 6 – Split Level Classes, a Strategic Approach

For episode 6 we will be talking about how we work with classes full of different levels, for example, I teach a class composed of level 3, level 4, year 2 IB ab initio, and AP French speakers.  What do I do, what can we do, to maintain our sanity while still reaching the students and helping them improve their proficiency.
