As schools shift to a performance-based model of language instruction, your world language programs will be challenged to keep up with new instructional activities and assessments. This new volume in our "Priorities in Practice" series can help. Explore the new directions schools and districts are taking in designing and implementing flexible language programs, such as: (1) Creating a new frame for the value of language learning; (2) Designing world language curriculums using assessment targets; (3) Reinventing the instructional environment in language classes; (4) Redefining the roles of teachers and curriculum coordinators in a performance-based approach; and (5) Setting more realistic expectations for students' second-language proficiency.
