World language curriculum

Learning other languages and understanding the culture of the people who speak them is a 21st Century skill that is vital to success in the global environment in which our students will live and work. In a 2006 report entitled, Education for Global Leadership: The Importance of International Studies and Foreign Languages for U.S. Economic and National Security,the Committee for Economic Development (CED) stated “To confront the twenty-first century challenges to our economy and national security, our education system must be strengthened to increase the foreign language skills and cultural awareness of our students. America’s continued global leadership will depend on our students’ abilities to interact with the world community both inside and outside our borders.” For college and career readiness, our students need to be proficient in other languages, regardless of whether they choose to transition directly to the workforce or to post-secondary education.

Ask Why Before How?

Asking why helps you to think about all the reasons for decisions. It helps you to open your mind to

possibilities and opportunities.

Thinking for a Change

Vocabulary lists

Functions come directly from the template. Template needs to be modified if changes are made.

Each section begins with a sentence frame – a question and answer pattern that works for that vocabulary.

Consider having students keep (or reissue) previous vocabulary lists to avoid adding lots of review words.

Limit vocabulary to no more than 150 high frequency words.

Find authentic resources before finalizing language specific vocabulary lists.

Reconsider activities such as seek-n-finds and crossword puzzles that use translation
