DEEP COLLABORATION, CONSTANT EVOLUTION
Collaboration here isn't a buzzword: it's woven into everything we do. Teams of English and Spanish or Chinese teachers share two classes of students, collaborating to nurture their students' social, emotional and academic growth. Teacher teams share responsibility for the curriculum and plan together daily. This intense collaboration is challenging as well as exciting: we're always evolving, learning from each other and seeking to improve.
LANGUAGE LEARNING AT AVENUES
Our mission is to equip young people to understand and solve global-scale problems. This is the core of why we teach our students a second language. Because of that mission, language learning at Avenues has some distinguishing features. 1) Our curriculum is rooted in task-based learning and teaching. We use authentic language tasks to structure teaching and practice activities. 2) We have selected tasks and topics that are uniquely relevant to global-scale problems. That means less learning about clothes shopping and more learning for cultural understanding.
