Nine-Year French Program. Curriculum Guide, [Grades 4-12].
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton. Language Services Branch.
The curriculum for a nine-year French language program in Alberta, beginning in grade 4 and designed to increase the effectiveness of language instruction by improved articulation and increased instructional time, is presented for each grade level. An introductory section outlines these program elements: rationale, goals, objectives, categories of curriculum content, minimum expectations for skill development and cultural understanding at the elementary level, suggested allotment of time for skill development, and phonology. Subsequent sections, organized for each school level (grade, junior high, and high school), outline specific grade-level performance objectives and the applicable linguistic content, suggested vocabulary, suggested cultural themes, learning resources, and suggested time allotments.
