International School Of Broward, Florida:
The International School of Broward, located in Hollywood in the south-east of Broward County, FL, is a charter school that serves grades 6-12 students from Broward and Miami-Dade counties. As well as following the American curriculum, we immerse our students into the French language and culture every day. We follow a successful two-way bilingual concept (English / French), thus providing students with an unique edge enabling them to become great communicators. We believe that providing our students with a solid educational foundation is paramount to the development of their intelligence.
- Middle School & High School programs for Grades 6-12.
- We follow a two-way bilingual concept in English / French.
* Core subjects include Mathematics; Science; Technology; Social Studies; Global Connections; Physical Education and Arts.
Curriculum (Two-way Bilingual Education):
The Primary focus under which the core of the school will fall will be under that of the Two-way Bilingual concept. ISB will provide instruction in the following five areas: communication, cultures, connection, comparisons and communities. Students will learn to communicate and perform academically in content subjects in French through listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Students will formulate and answer questions about the literary elements in French. Students will identify themes, ideas, or viewpoints on social behaviors and/or interactions of various cultures and will discuss these cultural differences as they participate in age-appropriate cultural activities. The goals of the concept will be:
* Bilingualism: Processing in English and a second language (French)
* Bi-literacy: Academic proficiency in English and a second language (French)
* Multi-Cultural Competence
* Understanding of various cultures and the development of positive self-esteem which will allow student acculturate in other cultures and not live their own culture as a frustration.
The design of the program will be the implementation of the 50/50 model, which will make use of two teachers, one who will instruct in English and the other in French. Instruction will be conducted through not only conversation and direct instruction, but through role-playing, cooperative-learning groups, including native and non-native speakers of the language of instructions. Peer tutoring, use of thematic units hands-on activities, and graphic organizations will be utilized.
The International School of Broward will utilize assessment tests to determine the fluency of all its students. Currently, we are considering Riverside Publishing – This firm offers the Bilingual Verbal Ability Test. The BVAT provides a technically sound procedure for combining the person's knowledge in English and the native language, thus yielding a better estimate of his/her verbal ability.
We will also use the assessment / evaluations from the French Ministry of Education to ensure that our students are performing at or above grade level in French. We are still conducting research on other programs as well that will assist us in placing the best program available for the students of the International School of Broward.
