Complaints of too much homework leads to change in District 102 language program
LA GRANGE PARK – An hour of foreign language homework per week was too much for District 102 fifth- and sixth-graders last year.
The district revamped its World Language Program for the 2012-13 school year by incorporating the Rosetta Stone language-learning program into its curriculum. The software is used by students at home to supplement in-school Spanish instruction and by students learning English.
Based on research that says students need two hours of language study per week to achieve proficiency, the district last year provided one hour of in-class Spanish instruction each week and assigned one hour of weekly homework, partly using Rosetta Stone. The program allows students to speak into a microphone and offers feedback on their pronunciation.
