the novice-high level as identified in the foreign language proficiency guidelines established
by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). The focus is
communication in the target language incorporating an understanding of the target cultures,
connecting with other disciplines, comparing native language to the target language, and
participating in multicultural communities. The course provides practice in correct use of
basic vocabulary and language structures to enable students to function effectively within
realistic settings. ACTFL recommends that at least 90% of the instructional time in class be
conducted in the target language. Instructional practices incorporate integration of diversity
awareness including appreciation of all cultures and their important contributions to our
society. The appropriate use of technology is an integral part of this course. This course
fulfills one of the elective credits required for high school graduation.
