School Board approves new foreign language texts

May 11, 2010

More than $136,000 in new foreign language text books will contribute to an ongoing effort to improve the Wauwatosa School District's world languages program.

In addition to the new books, approved by School Board members Monday, teachers will speak less English during foreign language classes and focus more on communication and less on grammar.

The proposed changes and material purchases are based on an audit conducted in December by consultant Helena Curtain, an international language expert.
