School Review Advanced

The most important thing you can do for your school is continually improve it so all students are successful. But where’s the best place to invest your time and efforts? Curriculum review? Staff development? Operations and finance? Physical space? All of the above? And how do you make sure that you’ve got all the information—and heard the most critical ideas and opinions—so that your limited resources are used in the most targeted and effective ways? An ISN School Review allows your school team to work with an experienced coach who will go through an extensive review process of every part of your school to help you create the high-impact plan you need. Our knowledgeable, supportive coaches will work with you and your team to review a whole host of school issues. 

The advanced review includes a comprehensive survey of questions completed by your school team and a results summary from the ISN based on survey results. Additionally, an ISN consultant will come to your school, complete a summary based on observations and evidence provided by the school, and provide results that will assist you in the development of an action plan.

World Languages Course

This World Languages non-credit course for students will introduce them to multiple languages in an exciting, engaging manner.
 
First and third quarters will begin by planning an ideal vacation to a Spanish-speaking city. Verbs and pronouns will be essential to the conversations in Spanish while acting out different scenarios. Because there are many different dialects in Spanish, students will also take a look at how languages vary from place to place. Participants will then explore Berlin, and Germany's recent past, all while learning vocabulary to sing songs auf Deutsch.
 
In second and fourth quarters students will learn about Shanghai, practicing greetings in Chinese and understanding how Chinese calligraphy evolved. Lastly, participants will study one of the world's most famous cities: Paris. Here, each student will investigate a French quarter and learn some French vocabulary related to visiting that area. Next participants say adieu to French and dive into a linguistical analysis of Latin-based languages, to understand the unspoken entwined nature of culture and language.
 
Dates and times for the course will be scheduled with specific schools and be done via Zoom video conferencing. Sessions will be recorded and accessible for students who are absent. 
 
The stated fee is per student per quarter.  Each course lasts 8 weeks/16 sessions. A minimum of 10 students are needed to offer the course.
 
Must register by August 15, 2015 for 1st quarter enrollment, October 15, 2015 for 2nd quarter enrollment, January 15, 2016 for 3rd quarter enrollment, and March 15, 2016 for 4th quarter enrollment.
