Chinese Language and Culture: 9-Year Program Guide to Implementation, Grades 4-5-6
Alberta Education
This implementation guide is intended to support the Grade 4 to Grade 6 portion of the Chinese Language and Culture Nine-year Program (the program of studies). It was developed primarily for teachers, yet it includes information that may be useful for administrators and other stakeholders in their efforts to plan for and implement the new Chinese program of studies. The program of studies provides a discussion of the value of learning a second language and lays out learning outcomes for each grade level. It defines what students are expected to achieve and what teachers are expected to teach. The guide is designed to assist educators as they: (1) Develop further understanding of the new program of studies; (2) Plan for meeting the needs of diverse learners; (3) Plan for the use of technology in the delivery of the new program; (4) Communicate with stakeholders, such as parents and community members; (5) Plan for instruction and assessment that support student achievement of the learning outcomes; (6) Monitor student progress in achieving the learning outcomes; (7) Select learning resources to support their own professional development; and (8) Select student learning resources to enhance instruction and assessment. Eight chapters include: (1) Introduction; (2) Planning; (3) Learning and Instructional Strategies; (4) Students with Special Education Needs; (5) Students Who are Gifted; (6) English as a Second Language Learners; (7) Classroom Assessment; and (8) Grade Level Samples (with separate discussion for each of grades 4, 5, and 6). Five appendixes follow: (1) Specific Outcomes Chart (by grade); (2) Vocabulary and Classroom Expressions; (3) Planning Tools; (4) Graphic Organizers; and (5) Assessment Blackline Masters. A bibliography is included.
