  1. Hi, We live in a Russian speaking country. We live overseas, and the course I found at TPS would be in the middle of the night for us. But, trying to find a curriculum, textbook, and then making a course for Russian is too much work for me right now. I'd like to have my child take Russian during high school. I thought about a community college online course, but I was afraid that might be too challenging... Has anyone found a Russian course online that they can take for credit other than at TPS? Thanks... Dee
  2. Hi forum, this is probably a long shot, but are there any homeschooling families in Kansas City area, who are bilingual in German and/or Russian? I am hoping to find like-minded people and give the children the opportunity to speak with someone else then the parent all the time. And also to be able to exchange ideas on bi- or trilingual homeschooling. Hope to find someone :) Christina
  3. Hi everyone, One of my best and brightest Latin 2 students has decided to switch to Russian. Our Latin teacher can handle Russian as well, but I'm having trouble finding classmates for her! In addition, we've got student who wants classmates for Latin 3. We'll probably march through Gaul with Caesar and toss in some Cicero for fun. Please contact me off-list if your high school student would like to join either class. Thanks, Christine Hahn www.latinforhomeschoolers.com
  4. My dd wants to study Russian, but we school through a virtual charter school that can only give her credit for classes that have a teacher certified to teach that subject. There is no one in the system that can officially teach Russian, but they are willing to let us do this. They get around this by letting us create project based assessments and group them under a certified teacher. So I have been creating a Russian class for her that will be officially be under a Social Studies teacher, meaning that we will submit the projects weekly or monthly for her to evaluate. My dd's main Social Studies will be American History, so this is in addition to that. Here is what I have come up with so far. Is there anyone out there who has any Russian background or experience in creating this kind of class that would be willing to take a look and see what they think? The teacher will give her input, but I know there are so many of you out there with great ideas that I want to pick your brains too. This is intended to be a year long class. Does it look too light? too heavy? Thanks for any thoughts or suggestions! Russian Language and Culture 8th Grade Honors Independent Study Social Studies Project Proposal Background: An interest in becoming an astronaut has motivated ---- to study Russian for her modern foreign language. Her father is fluent in Russian and will be able to help support her efforts. Goals: Introduction to Russian alphabet and language through the use of the Russian Step by Step workbooks (www.russianstepbystep.com), and conversation with her father; appreciation of Russian Culture and history through projects. Language learning assessment will be done through workbook evaluation and periodic vocabulary quizzes. Vocabulary will be chosen to go along with the monthly cultural projects. Culture assessment will be done through weekly current events reports and monthly Culture Projects. Weekly Current Events Journal: Student will research current events in Russia from the Russian perspective and make a journal response or summary of the article, depending on what the article merits and her views on the region. As the year continues, these should begin to reflect growth in her personal responses as she learns more about the culture, politics, etc. and develops her own viewpoints regarding the region. Potential sources of news include: www.themoscowtimes.com; English.pravda.ru; rt.com; voiceofrussia.com; sptimes.ru Monthly Project Suggestions (may be done in any order; written assessments may also be submitted as writing samples for Language Arts): 1. Research and present the 5 Themes of Geography for Russia as a Powerpoint, Prezi, or Glogster poster. Choose cities from different parts of Russia, and make note monthly of the weather in these different regions over the course of the school year. 2. Research traditional Russian foods, and prepare 3 meals of traditional Russian foods for the family. Submit photographs of the meals, along with a brief summary of the experience (ie. likes/dislikes). Field trip to Russian Tea House in St. Paul. 3. Read Russian fairytales or myths and choose at least one to compare/contrast with other fairytales or myths with which you were previously familiar, or write your own fairytale in the Russian style. 4. Learn a piano piece by Kabalevski (or other Russian composer) and submit a video recording of you playing the piece. Research a Russian composer and complete a 5 paragraph narrative summary of their life or work. (Should include listening to one or more pieces by the composer.) Field trip to concert or ballet. (Chippewa Valley Symphony Orchestra will present Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 in E minor, op. 64; the Russian Ballet will present the Nutcracker in Minneapolis in December; or other possibilities that come up.) 5. Read short stories by classic Russian authors, and analyze themes in one or more of your choices. 6. Choose an historical fiction book of a famous Russian figure, and a non-fiction reference book about the same figure. Write an obituary of this figure highlighting their national accomplishments and failures. 7. Research the history of the space race between the US and Russia. Create an outline of the milestones in the space race. 8. Field trip to the Museum of Russian art in Minneapolis. Choose one artist of your choice and do an art print study of their work. Try your hand at your own work of art in the style of your chosen artist and submit a photograph of the work.
  5. Does anyone know a place where I can create or just download printable worksheets for Russian handwriting practice? TIA
  6. I am looking for a online group course to study Russian, not individual. My daughter is studying Russian, seriously, every day, and I would like to see her interact with other students studying Russian, at least to hear it in a group setting. We don't have in the area any Russian people or churches, or groups, or schools, so this kind of interaction is not possible to happen. But may be somebody knows or takes a good online course with a few students participation. Appreciate any suggestions. Beside Landry academy, I won't be able to afford it. Lena
  7. I need a good (read- CHEAP) program for picking up some basic Russian. Any ideas?
  8. DS has done Latin since 3rd grade (he's 9th grade now). I insisted that he continue through at least one year of high school to get it on the transcript, but he's truly sick of it and really wants to do something else. All along I figured he'd probably go with a Romance language--Spanish being perhaps the most useful and easily supplemented or French since I studied it in high school and college. But NooOOOooooooo. He wants to do Russian. So I figured Rosetta Stone was probably the most realistic option since I have ZERO experience with it. CC classes are a possibility for perhaps 11th or 12th grade, but to start with, what should I know about Rosetta Stone and what other options are there? I've already checked a few items out from the library, an audio conversational Russian course (haven't picked it up yet and don't remember the name) and some children's books and videos in Russian. When I have studied other languages myself, I found that children's books were very helpful for practice (French, Spanish, Icelandic). This will be for 10th grade, next year, but I'm trying to scout out what's available and get a bit of a head-start on next year. Thanks!
  9. I notice that TPS is offering Russian 1 next fall and that they use the Troika textbook. I am not familiar with this text. (We have only used Golosa and Russian Step by Step.). :confused: Any thoughts on Troika or TPS Russian?
  10. My 10th grade ds wants to study Russian as his foreign language!! I thought...why not! But of course, I know nothing about the language. So...anyone successfully studied Russian? What INEXPENSIVE or FREE programs are available. I do not have the resources to purchase Rosetta stone or anything similar (I have the spanish...but of course he doesn't want to study that.....). Thanks,
  11. http://articles.baltimoresun.com/1998-03-04/news/1998063127_1_phonics-read-english-russian-language/3 I find it fascinating that the whole language/phonics debate is active in every country, including those whose languages are so much more regularly phonetic than English. I am a native speaker of German, and have spoken English for so long that I am practically a native speaker of that, too. Along the way I have studied: French, Spanish, Italian, Latin, and Irish Gaelic. Of those, Irish was the most difficult, but even that was manageable. Russian will be the death of me. I have such a hard time comprehending a non-Latin script. I wish I'd studied Greek when I was younger, as it might have prepared my brain for this. Finally, the other day, I came upon a solution to my quandary... Geraldine Rodgers discusses in her history of reading instruction how English students were taught to read phonetically using syllables in Latin, a language which they didn't (yet) understand. Only when the decoding was cemented did they apply this knowledge to English, which they did understand... what a great way to prevent guesswork! I began to realize that my problem with the way I've been trying to learn is that all the methods I'm using (Rosetta Stone clones like LiveMocha) are basically whole language for Russian, showing an image and a word or phrase. What I want/need is a Russian phonetic course for foreigners. I found this awesome chart on youtube, and I'm trying to figure out how to get my father-in-law, who is a very busy man and wouldn't like to go to a teacher supply store or the like, to get me one: a chart with the syllables which pronounces them for you. I suppose my argument could be that I could use it for my sons, too. ;) So anywho I've realized that I need to forget the focus on meaning and communication and just focus on the reading, getting the letters and syllables down pat, and just plain reading words until I can do so without problems. Once I can do that I think the meaning will come so much more easily. Does anyone have a Russian curriculum recommendation for me (an adult learner) or my sons? I can't really guide them yet, but my husband could.
  12. My son decided on Russian for his Foreign Language. UGH! If your student is learning Russian, what curriculum are you using?
  13. Probably a long shot, but I thought I'd ask- my dd15 wants to start Rosetta Stone Russian again, but we need a text book with it to satisfy her charter school. can anyone recommend one? This will be for 1st year Russian. She did a bit with Rosetta Stone a few years ago, but gave up when it became frustrating. I'm looking at one a college in Vermont uses, but I'd thought I'd ask if there are any better out there. thanks, :lurk5:
  14. DD13, who will start high school in the fall, wants to study Russian. The program I have heard about the most is Rosetta Stone. It is very $$$. Is it worth it? She would probably do all three levels. Any other good options? Should this program be acceptable for high school credit by colleges? I am not familair yet with high school transcripts or what will be acceptable by colleges. I was checking out a Laurel Springs online open house and I think I remember it being mentioned that Rosetta Stone is not typically accepted by colleges??? Is this true? I think they were using Powerglide, which changed its name to something similar ( but I can't remember!). So, I would like feedback on your favorite modern language porgrams for high school that will not be rejected by colleges. (I guess I need to start a new thread solely on high school transcripts and courses as I am in the dark about that whole thing.) Thanks! Natalija
