who demonstrate a proficiency level of novice-high as identified in the foreign language
proficiency guidelines established by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign
Languages (ACTFL). Students continue to refine proficiency in the target language with the
end-of-course goal of demonstrating proficiency at the intermediate-low level. This course is
designated as honors level by the accelerated instructional pacing and depth of content. The
focus is communication in the target language incorporating 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.
