1 Colorado World Languages Standards The 4 C’s

2 Standards-based instruction Learning with a purpose

3 Toni Theisen Loveland High School Loveland, Colorado

4 TSD WL Standards Wikispace Learn about the standards Check out proficiency levels Examine curriculum maps and scope/sequence docs Examine Learner Targets docs Check out new rubrics aligned with standards

5 Today’s Essential Question How do teachers design effective instruction aligned with the Colorado World Languages standards? How do teachers design effective instruction to move students along the proficiency continuum?

6

7 Learner-centered Put the learner in the center of instruction. There is a BIG difference between just knowing and really understanding.

8 The learner will….. Review the Colorado Academic Standards Examine the priority learnings-the 3 modes Become familiar with ACTFL proficiency levels How to move from one level to another

23 Standard 2:Cultures: Knowledge and Understanding of Other Cultures 2.1 Cultural practices and perspectives: Demonstrate an understanding of the relationship between the practices and perspectives of the cultures studied 2.2 Cultural products and perspectives: Demonstrate an understanding of the relationship between the products and perspectives of the cultures studied

24 Standard 3:Connections: Connections with Other Disciplines and Information Acquisition 3.1 Connections to other disciplines: Reinforce and further knowledge of other disciplines through the foreign language 3.2 Acquiring new information: Acquire information and recognize the distinct viewpoints that are only available through the foreign language and its cultures.

25 Standard 4:Comparisons: Comparisons to Develop Insight into the Nature of Language and Culture 4.1 Language comparisons: Demonstrate understanding of the nature of language through comparisons of the language studied and their own 4.2 Cultural comparisons: Demonstrate understanding of the concept of culture through comparisons of the cultures studied and their own

26 Ranges-PreK-13 Ranges What students are able to know, understand and be able to do? Resources: ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines and ACTFL Performance Guidelines

27 Proficiency Ranges-PreK-13 Unlike other Colorado Academic Content Standards areas, the world languages standard is benchmarked by proficiency levels, rather than grade levels.

28 Proficiency Ranges-PreK-13 Intermediate-Mid Intermediate-Low Novice-High Novice-Mid Novice-Low

29 Targeted proficiency ranges for TSD classes Elementary programs-Novice-Low (approaching Novice-Mid at Truscott and Coyote Ridge) 6th grade-Novice Low (approaching Novice- Mid) Levels 1A, 1B, Level 1-Novice-Mid Level 2-Novice-Mid (approaching Novice-High) Level 3: Novice-High (approaching Intermediate-Low) Level 4: Intermediate Low Level 5 (AP/IB) Intermediate-Mid

30 Proficiency ranges explained Novice-Low Range: Students communicate using isolated words and some high-frequency phrases with very limited communicative ability.

31 Proficiency ranges explained Novice-Mid Range: Students communicate using memorized words and phrases to talk about familiar topics related to school, home, and the community. Students are able to speak and write using short sentences that contain learned words and phrases. They are able to understand the target language when it is spoken in short, simple phrases and sentences and contain many cognates and memorized phrases and words.. They are able to read very brief texts with comprehension based on basic common themes such as family, school, activities, etc.. Comprehension is further enhanced when the spoken language and written text are supported by visual cues and gestures.

32 Proficiency ranges explained Novice-High Range: Students communicate using words, lists, and simple sentences to ask and answer questions, to handle simple transactions related to everyday life, and to talk about subject matter studied in other classes. Students are able to speak and write using short sentences that contain learned words and phrases. They are able to understand the target language when it is spoken in short, simple phrases and sentences. They are able to read brief texts with comprehension. Comprehension is further enhanced when the spoken language and written text are supported by visual cues and gestures.

33 Proficiency ranges explained Intermediate-Low Range: Students communicate using simple sentences to ask and answer questions, to handle simple transactions related to everyday life, and to talk about subject matter studied in other classes. Students are able to participate in simple conversational situations using sentences and groups of sentences. They can create with the target language by combining and recombining learned phrases and words. They can write simple messages, read authentic texts dealing with familiar topics, and understand the main ideas when listening to conversations dealing with familiar topics or themes. At this range is when students begin to autonomously create with the target language for the first time.

34 Proficiency ranges explained Intermediate-Mid Range: Students communicate using strings of sentences to ask and answer questions, to handle simple transactions related to everyday life, and to talk about subject matter studied in other classes. Students can initiate and sustain conversations by making statements, asking questions, and giving appropriate responses. They can communicate using appropriate time frames on everyday topics both orally and in writing. Students are able to compose cohesive paragraphs related to familiar topics and personal experiences. They are able to understand the main ideas and significant details in extended discussions and presentations, both live and recorded. They are able to acquire new knowledge and information from authentic texts including short literary texts and media.

48 ACTFL Integrated Performance Assessment 1. Interpretive Communication Phase Students listen to and / or read an authentic text and answer information as well as interpretive questions to assess comprehension. The teacher provides students with feedback on performance. 2. Interpersonal Communication Phase After receiving feedback students engage in communication about a particular topic which relates to the interpretive text. This phase is audio- or videotaped. 3. Presentational Communicative Phase Students engage in the presentational mode by sharing their research/ideas/opinions. Samples presentational formats: speeches, drama, skits, radio broadcasts, posters, brochures, podcasts, websites, etc.
