Standards of Learning. Modern Foreign Language, Levels I-IV. Goals, Objectives and Descriptive Statements.
Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond.
Virginia's statewide objectives for foreign language learning, part of a larger program of learning objectives for all basic subjects and all levels of elementary and secondary education, are presented. The program is aimed at developing language proficiency, with goals and objectives designed to serve the general statewide needs for communicating content and the specific local curriculum planning needs. Goals are established for five areas: listening, speaking, reading, writing, and culture, and are intended to be treated as interrelated and interdependent. They provide a scope and sequence for four levels of instruction, and focus on the results of instruction rather than the methodology. Some general suggestions for curriculum content are given. The foreign language objectives are designed to coordinate with the Proficiency Project of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. (MSE)
