|南温莎 公立学校 is proud to offer the Connecticut "密封的可利用" to eligible graduating seniors. See the information below to learn more.
What is the 密封的可利用?
The 密封的可利用 is an award given to recognize students who have studied and attained proficiency in English and one or more languages by high school graduation. The 密封的可利用 recognizes the value of students’ academic efforts, the tangible benefits of being bilingual and biliterate, and prepares students to be 21st century global citizens in a multicultural, 多语言的世界. The 密封的可利用 acknowledges that mastery of two or more languages is a valuable asset for both individuals and their communities. 也, the 密封的可利用 provides recognition to English learners for the great value of developing English and maintaining their primary language.
What does the Seal measure?
The seal measures a student’s ability to 使用 a language for real world purposes. To attain the 密封的可利用, students’ 使用 of the language must be demonstrated, rather than their knowledge about the language. Bilterate students should be able to handle a variety of tasks in social situations, write compositions and essays, be understood by native speakers, read about a variety of topics, and explain the relationship between the cultures and traditions of their languages.
Who is eligible for the Seal?
The 密封的可利用 may be awarded to eligible senior students who are:
• Enrolled in upper level World 语言 courses; or
• Heritage Speakers or 英语学习者 who speak and study a different language at home
||Complete the necessary application; and
||把AAPPL, ALIRA, or OPI/ WPT language proficiency assessment in their senior year and score an Intermediate Mid proficiency or higher in speaking, 写作, 阅读, 和听力.
“Being exposed to the existence of other languages increases the perception that the world is populated by people who not only speak differently from oneself, but whose cultures and philosophies are other than one’s own. Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry; but by demonstrating that all people cry, laugh, eat, worry and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try to understand each other, we may even become friends.”
