World Languages at Warren HS
"In order to begin to prepare future leaders, Northside Independent School District students have the choice of selecting from four languages: French, German, Latin, and Spanish. Students should start language learning as early as possible and continue for as long as possible in order to become proficient in the language. In addition to developing proficiency, students will develop a cultural awareness of other nationalities and broaden their intellectual capacities."
Language Classes offered at Warren:
World Languages at Northside ISD:
American Sign Language (ASL), French, German, Latin, Spanish
The Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for Languages Other Than English (TEKS for LOTE) is the foundation of all Northside ISD World Languages curriculum. The World Languages offered in Northside ISD are French, German, Latin (select campuses), Spanish, and ASL (offered at Marshall HS and Taft HS only).
Since the teaching of all modern languages is similar, the following descriptions apply to each level of each language. French, German, and Spanish courses consistently use the three modes of communication: Interpersonal, Interpretive, and Presentational. Via the practice of the three modes of communication, the following skills will be refined; speaking, listening, reading, and writing.
Latin is a classical language where great emphasis is placed on the skill of reading. ASL is a performance-based language where the focus is on signaling skills in authentic, real-world situations.
Students will have the opportunity to enroll in several language courses from I - VI and may take on-level, Advanced, and/or Advanced Placement.
