Foreign Languages Course of Study, Junior & Senior High Schools. Draft.
Dade County Public Schools, Miami, FL. Div. of Elementary and Secondary Instruction.
The study guide outlining the modern foreign language courses for English speakers in Dade County's secondary schools establishes a uniform sequential program for instruction in French, German, Hebrew, Italian, and Spanish. Program expectancies are described for each level and type of course, to serve as a basis for planning appropriate instruction and for articulation within the district's feeder patterns. A prefatory section discusses the notions of foreign language communication and program expectancies. An overview of the course offerings, an introduction to the program's goals, and criteria for the honors courses follow. Subsequent sections treat each language's course designs. For French this includes French I (regular), French II-VI (regular and honors), advanced placement, and two levels of alternate conversational courses. For German it includes German I (regular), German II-V (regular and honors), advanced placement, an alternate introductory conversational course, and a scientific-cultural course at levels III-IV. For Hebrew it includes Hebrew I (regular) and Hebrew II-V (regular and honors), and for Italian it includes Italian I (regular) and Italian II-IV (regular and honors). For Spanish it includes Spanish I (regular), Spanish II-VI (regular and honors), advanced placement, two levels of alternate conversational courses, two levels of courses for individualizing Spanish for English-speakers, two levels of courses for career-oriented individualized Spanish, and an introduction to Hispanic culture.
