Speaking Spanish - Westdale foreign language program earns award

Speaking Spanish - Westdale foreign language program earns award | Multilingual Finesse | Scoop.it
Five years ago, the Baton Rouge school system extended its most popular foreign language program into Westdale Middle School, and now the small program is beginning to get recognition.

Most recently, it earned one of the top School of the Year academic excellence awards from the Spanish Ministry of Education. Westdale Middle Principal Sherry Brock and Clare Peterson, coordinator of the school’s magnet program, collected the award at a September ceremony in Washington, D.C.

The award brings with it $5,000, a one-week course in Spanish language and literature for one Westdale Middle School teacher, a set of classroom materials and two licenses to online courses offered through a nonprofit connected with the Spanish government.

Immersing children in foreign languages, while still rare, has become more of an option in Louisiana for parents interested in having bilingual or multilingual children.

In Baton Rouge, elementary-age children have long had Baton Rouge Foreign Language Academic Immersion school, formerly South Boulevard Elementary School. BR FLAIM instructs children in all core subjects in Spanish or French. The school, however, tops out at fifth grade.

Enter Westdale Middle School’s Foreign Language Immersion Program. The program has about 100 students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades, split roughly evenly between those taking Spanish or French. Westdale’s program is open to BR FLAIM children as well as to children enrolled in other foreign language schools in town — such as the private Baton Rouge International School.

Like BR FLAIM, Westdale Middle School’s immersion students are taught core subjects by teachers speaking Spanish or French. Math is the only exception, but Principal Brock said she’s considering finding Spanish- or French-speaking teachers who can teach the multiple levels of math required in middle school.

The Spanish plan against language immersion

The Spanish plan against language immersion | Multilingual Finesse | Scoop.it

The Spanish government is promoting a law on educational quality. It intends to put the Catalan language in a secondary position in Catalan schools.

This is Catalan National Assembly's declaration about the Spanish plan:

This bill is the most serious attack the Catalan language since the end of Franco's dictatorship. It is a cowardly attack, issued after the parliamentary elections in Catalonia. The Spanish political and judicial apparatus pushes a systematic approach of contempt and margination of the Catalan language, especially regarding the educational model of immersion.
The law denigrates the Catalan language, and it undermines the cohesion of Catalan people. It stands for segregation and division between Catalan speakers and Spanish speakers. It tries to create a conflict that did not exist in Catalonia. We chose our educational model freely and we will not allow any interference that violates our will. The language immersion and the use of Catalan as basic language in schools is a successful model, which is recognized by experts and institutions...
