Model Learner Outcomes for World Languages Education.
Jebe, Suzanne P.
This report on model learner outcomes for world languages education is divided into five sections. The first describes the values, philosophy, mission, and goals of the Minnesota State Board of Education. The second section provides an introduction to and information on the goals of world languages education. Section three presents a range of model learner outcomes for foreign language learning that can be used to develop specific, proficiency-based language programs in Minnesota schools. These model learner outcomes are related to current work in the area of proficiency by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) and other agencies, and define what learners should be able to do with the language they are acquiring. Proficiency is the underlying philosophy of this report and the guiding principle for the development of the curriculum and instruction suggested in chapter four. Appended materials include the ACTFL proficiency guidelines, principal implications for curriculum and instruction as derived from the ACTFL proficiency guidelines, a curriculum planning form, a checklist for proficiency-oriented programs, and a glossary, bibliography, and an annotated list of organizational resources. A 1989 supplement to chapter three is attached. (JL)
