First term is now finished. I meant to update before now, but as always, I've been very busy with various projects.
First: all of the fundamental work on the junior high curriculum is now complete. Anything that happens to the curriculum from now on should be relatively minor.
This summer, I will begin the major work on the new high school curriculum.
I'm also working on the SELP curriculum for the high school. Next April, we will be changing textbooks, but starting in September, we will begin slowly shifting our classes towards the new book and the new material. In 2010, we will have a much stronger emphasis on listening in the SELP curriculum, and will do much more to prepare our students for important exams.
There is a lot going on with the high school NELP curriculum, but that news will have to wait.
Final exam scores for the NELP classes went quite low this term. I was very surprised in several cases. The reading tests were particularly brutal, so parents, please don't be too shocked at your children's grades. The tests were very difficult.
Now that the curriculum is complete, I should be able to keep this blog a little more up to date.
