This Tuesday, the World Language Department had a great night at the Nipmuc Showcase, welcoming families and students from all across the Blackstone Valley. We enjoyed meeting so many new people and welcomed their many questions! We are extremely proud of our department and the many advances we have made in skills-based assessment and technology integration. We LOVE to tell potential students (or pretty much, anyone who will listen) about the creative things we do!
To add a bit of fun to the evening, we employed the app and watched the kids get a good laugh! We set up an IPad for each language with signs telling people to take a look. When their curiosity got the best of them and they peeked into the IPad, they found that their faces had been “painted” with the country colors of Italy, France, or Spain. It was hilarious watching people’s reactions! It also was a great way to break the ice and start a conversation about the benefits of world language acquisition in a global economy.
