This guide, "a work in progress," is one of a series designed to serve as companion documents for the New York state learning standards defined for each major curriculum area. It is intended to establish a connection between the state-mandated learning standards and classroom instruction and to further elaborate on the standards that will assist in planning grade-by-grade curricula. It has four parts. The first outlines the elements considered essential in planning a standards-based curriculum for foreign languages. It contains samples of locally developed curricula and scope and sequence materials, examples of best practices, and materials to support curriculum development. The second part presents standards-based learning experiences developed and reviewed by classroom teachers from across the state, as examples of "real" activities that can be used to bring learning standards to life in the classroom. Part three provides information on student assessment strategies, model assessments developed and used by teachers in New York State, and assessment materials developed by national and state professional organizations. The final part outlines performance indicators at three levels for each state standard. (MSE)
