CHIST students use the Japanese language as a vehicle to learn content and big ideas. Our language courses are learning centered with teachers as facilitators, designing curriculum with skills and knowledge targets in mind.
CHIST students and teachers celebrate language learning as central to the 21st century skill of communication and collaboration, essential for developing critical thinking and problem solving skills, to create, innovate, to use information and to grow their media literacy.
As CHIST students approach Japanese from various levels of a foreign, heritage, or native language, differentiated instruction is given to best meet individual needs.
CHIST students are the “doers” and “creators”, and technology is integrated into the curriculum to enhance learning.
