Atlantic Community School District utilizes Rosetta Stone as part of its English language development curriculum to assist us in working toward meeting English language proficiency standards. The five language proficiency standards we work toward include both social and academic uses of the language our students must acquire for success in and beyond the classroom. The first standard encompasses social and intercultural interaction along with the language associated with instruction across the curriculum. The other standards target the language of the core content areas: language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies (http://www.TESOL.org):




Standard 1: English language learners communicate for social, intercultural, and instructional purposes within the school setting.

Standard 2: English language learners communicate information, ideas, and concepts necessary for academic success in the area of language arts.

Standard 3: English language learners communicate information, ideas, and concepts necessary for academic success in the area of mathematics.

Standard 4:English language learners communicate information, ideas, and concepts necessary for academic success in the area of science.

Standard 5: English language learners communicate information, ideas, and concepts necessary for academic success in the area of social studies.
