Passport Introduction and Navigation WL

Passport is an online learning environment designed for students to engage in the content being taught, complete activities and assignments, and use tools to practice and perform inside and outside of the classroom. Students can access resources and complete a variety of assignment types using any type of electronic device with an internet connection.

PASSPORT TOOLS AND RESOURCES

 

*resources vary by program

eBook activities from the student edition, workbooks and other ancillaries, can be assigned to students for completion inside or outside of class. eBook activities have a start and due date and a number of maximum attempts set by the teacher. Many activities are automatically graded and students receive automatic feedback. 

Flipgrid is now fully embedded in Passport, with all of the functionality, including student replies and moderation of responses. Teachers can create a Flipgrid activity and use that to spark a conversation amongst students, while they practice their interpersonal and presentational speaking skills.

Performance activities are also video responses, but those are shared only with the teacher. Teachers set the prompt for the activity, the amount of time students have to prepare and record their response, as well as how many attempts they get for each. Teachers may give written and/or video feedback to the students, and grade on a proficiency scale using our proficiency-based rubric (for WL).

Custom activities can be added to Passport to include materials created by the teacher, allow students to upload projects, or incorporate writing activities into lessons. Student responses can be simply an acknowledgement that they received the resource, a short writing in a text box, or the uploading of a file. All work stays in Passport.

eReader libraries are available with World Language and ELA programs. Some eReaders have audio features and interactive activities to give students immediate feedback. Others include printable activities and vocabulary lists. Students have the ability to highlight, annotate and bookmark pages.

Bundles are a group of different activities and resources assigned as a single assignment with a single grade and due date. Bundles can include eBook activities, Flipgrid or Performance activities, and Custom activities. 

iCulture is our cultural immersion resource for world languages which includes travel videos, day in the life videos, current news and karaoke songs, which are updated each month during the school year. There are pre-built activities for all items. *Spanish, French and German

Integrated Performance Assessments are available for each unit of each level for all World Language programs. They include a single interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational task, as well as an optional reflection task. These are all authentic resources and real-world tasks used to assess and track students' performance.
