World Language

World Language
All students begin as novice learners of a new language; teachers advance the learning as developmentally appropriate. Student Achievement Standards and Student Objectives are organized by proficiency levels: novice, beginner, intermediate, advanced, and high school. All students begin as novice learners of a new language; teachers can advance the learning as developmentally appropriate. This allows for differentiating of instruction to accommodate learners who speak the language at home and those learners with no experience of the language.

The world language achievement standards are separated into strands: communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities. The focus of each strand is as follows:
Communication
Students will engage in conversation, provide and obtain information, express feelings and exchange opinions.
Students will understand and interpret spoken and written language on a variety of topics.
Students will present information, concepts and ideas to listeners or readers on a variety of topics.


Cultures

Connections

Students will acquire and use information from a variety of sources only available in the world language, using technology, print, audiovisual, media, data and human resources.


Comparisons
