What You’ll Do

The Avenues Language Learning Intensive will open its first semester in January 2020. A small team of colleagues will work with a cohort of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students to sharpen and develop their English reading, writing, and speaking through a task- and project-based interdisciplinary curriculum co-developed by the faculty and a team of experts. In this semester-long onboarding program, faculty will also:

    • Ensure that students achieve key learning outcomes, targeting instruction to address individual needs
    • Successfully support students’ linguistic needs in all grade levels, through a variety of different well-planned and evidence-based strategies
    • Build a learning atmosphere that leads students to feel part of a challenging and joyful learning community
    • Collaborate intensively with colleagues to design interdisciplinary projects and continually deepen student learning
    • Inspire trust and confidence among parents and families
