This guide is a companion document to the revised "Second Language Standard Course for Study," which was approved by the North Carolina State Board of Education in November 1999. It was designed to address needs that were identified by teachers and supervisors during the curriculum development process. The guide is divided into three sections. Section one addresses curriculum planning at the local level and suggests a process for developing a local curriculum and for creating units. It also provides some suggestions for teaching 20-minute elementary school foreign language classes or 90-minute blocked classes at the high school level. The second section identifies instructional strategies especially suitable for second language classes. It defines individual strategies and their benefits and explains ways to use them in the classroom. The third section includes sample lessons submitted by North Carolina elementary, middle, and high school foreign language teachers. The lessons are sample activities or projects that address more than one goal and objective. An appendix contains a publication order form. (Contains 29 references.) (KFT)
