Colorado Model Content Standards: Foreign Language.
Colorado State Dept. of Education, Denver.
The model course content standards for foreign language instruction in Colorado's public schools, K-12, provide guidelines, not curriculum, for school districts to design language programs. An introductory section presents some basic considerations in program design. The two general standards for foreign language performance are that: (1) students will communicate in a foreign language while demonstrating literacy in all four essential skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing), and (2) students will acquire and use knowledge of other cultures while developing foreign language skills. Specific criteria for each of the language skills and cultural knowledge at each of three proficiency levels (beginning, intermediate, advanced) are then outlined. A brief glossary is appended. (MSE)
