Use of the Language Laboratory
We are privileged here at Hickman High School to be using such
a wonderful piece of learning equipment. The language laboratory
has been made available to us through the citizens of Columbia at
considerable cost. Therefore, it is our hope that you will treat
this equipment with all respect.
This lab is an important learning device designed to improve your
performance in hearing and speaking language. The lab's purpose
is to allow students to hear their own voices, their own accents,
and to allow them to record some of the lessons in order to drill
and study outside of class. In addition, the listening and speaking
portions of the Advance Placement Exam are given in the lab so students
will have both the practice and familiarity with the equipment to
put them to advantage.
This is a wonderful opportunity not available to many of the students
in other Missouri schools. Therefore, you will want to use it properly.
There will be no tampering, fiddling, or playing with the machinery.
Specifically, the following will not be acceptable:
It is therefore essential that you understand that any kind of tampering
or marring of desk tops or equipment will be dealt with as an act
of vandalism and that, since this is a public institution, you will
be held accountable for such an act.
- Chewing gum
- Twisting headset wires
- Sitting on the console tops/feet on console tops
- Writing on the desk tops or dividers
- Unnecessary pushing of buttons and switches
- Tipping chairs back
