Placement Policy: making sure our students get the best possible fit

Three English language programs to meet the needs of all our students :

· · ·

ENL ­ children from English language backgrounds or who have native-like fluency ESL ­ children who have an aptitude for language learning and have some degree of fluency EFL ­ children who are learning English as a foreign language and need carefully sequenced and structured teaching of language items

The three groups reflect three different kinds of language learners and are not necessarily hierarchical. Each group is a mixed ability group; and within each skill area, there are mixed abilities as well.

What does MS1 EFL writing look like?

Dear Sam, How are you? I can tell you that I'm very happy because I've become a volunteer for a rescue team! The name is "Line the best!" The service it offers is that when a fire happens, they call the fire engine and the fire engine calls us to go and save the people that are inside the burning house. As a member of the team I have to be on call twenty-four hours a day. This is the bad thing. The good thing is that I am with my friends and we have taken lots of medals for any job. Being paid to save people it is aufull. Because if you don't get payed, when you have saved people you feel great you feel that you have done something good.

From in-class writing based on Unit 2 Choices "Help"

What does MS 1 ESL writing look like?

Isolation is the worst punishment. I prefer to die instantly without pain than stay into a gloomy building for the rest of my life. It's so barbaric! I can't communicate with others, I can't enjoy the beautiful sunshine, the distant horizon or the wildness of the sea! I can't run and play with other humans or even visit my own relatives. What have I done to deserve this?

Based on the reading of "Rappaccini's Daughter" and the issue of isolation.

What does Middle School I ENL writing look like?

Tribute This tribute is for the people who invent things we now just take for granted John Atanasoff was his name and "computers" was his game for us to enjoy and create everyday joy (and anger) His name is not widely known but his creation has spread all over the world Who invented TV? Who invented the radio? I bet you don't know Have you ever asked who invented the phone when you were making a call These people must be cherished by all.

EFL Sample

We can see his kidness when he helps the family in the forest and when he helps the little boy who was drawning. Furthermore, we see the creature's kidness when he talks to the old blind man. For me, making a choise like travelling alone is one of these risks. In my opinion, this experience would alow me to become more independent.... He has compromised as most of us do, he is basically civilized but makes exceptions. He has his own definition of civilized...

Student Writing Samples

· High School 1 Each dream requires its own set of character traits to be accomplished. However, there are also general "guidelines" that a person should follow in order to accomplish any goal. Primarily, a person should be hard-working and determined and should not let sexism, racism, or any other kind of prejudice get in their way. (ENL)

·

High School 2 During the Elizabethan period, women had to be the living example of proper femininity. They were used as a means to an end - that is, to more wealth and high connections in society ­ by their families, and as a way to display wealth and power. (ENL)

·

High School 3 However, wars, physical catastrophies, famine, anorexic and decapitated blooded bodies, tortures of innocent people and racial discriminations constitute the image of our real and harsh world...An image that captures the decay of our ideals and proves the humiliating...(ENL)

The Delta Speech Prize Contest

Linking high-level thinking with a mastery of English

Samples of Student Speeches

· Sample 1: Our forefathers enjoyed the company of a pantheon of Gods but were never privileged to become part of that pantheon themselves. Maybe in their wisdom they never tried, and maybe in our wisdom, we should, as Clint Eastwood says, "...Know our limits". After all, "If all else fails immortality can always be assured by spectacular error!" Sample 2: But when this feeling of love vanishes, and the couple breaks up, passionate love is replaced by the passionate desire for revenge. Both people are hurt. They are in pain and they suffer. The only thing that could make them feel better is to watch the person they once loved suffer. They are obsessed and desire revenge on the person who created this.

WHY TRINITY?

· Complements the school's single-number assessment e.g. 18/20, 15/20, 9/20

­ the single number reflects academic performance in four skills ­ speaking, reading, writing, listening ­ The single number also reflects quality of participation in the teaching and learning process; degree of interest; homework assignments, ­ Trinity contributes to the picture of where our students are

· "Best practice"

­ Integrated skills testing (Internet based TOEFL uses same approach, new in 2006)

· Flexibility

­ Oral exams can be scheduled on dates compatible with school's program ­ School is given on-the-spot, post-exam feedback on overall candidate strengths and weaknesses (in addition to scores for individual students)

February 21, 2007 Presentation to the Psychico College Parents' Association 49

How is it different from other external exams?

Follows communicative approach

· In line with HAEF general English philosophy / core: English in use NOT test-taking skills or "testmanship"

Student-Centered

· · Student choice and interest acknowledged (e.g. portfolio choice, oral exam, interactive phase) Acknowledges individual strengths/ weaknesses

Examiners

· All examiners come directly from the UK ­ Their ears are not attuned to the way Greek students speak English

Positive

· · 12-grade/ level system allows for testing at a wide variety of levels: teachers can select the appropriate exam level for each student Focuses on what students CAN DO, rather than what they CAN'T
