World Language Curriculum

Grades 5-6

Philosophy

Webster’s Dictionary defines communication as a process by which meanings are exchanged by individuals through a common system of symbols. Educators have recognized language, one of the symbols used in communication, as a vital instrument in promoting peace and understanding. The World Language curriculum should be one that capitalizes on the student’s natural desire to communicate and emphasizes active student participation.

The curriculum meets the needs of all learners by providing a multi-sensory approach through the use of audio, video, and kinesthetic, tactile, and communication activities. The use of Differentiated Instruction in lesson design will aid in accomplishing this goal.

As our students strive to master the basic skills of a World Language, they will also gain an appreciation of other people and other cultures. Not only is this important in our own diverse society, but also in the global village.

Our philosophy is to arouse interest and enthusiasm in our young people to be receptive to other people’s values and behavior patterns.

“…no man is an island.”

John Donne

World Language Curriculum

Program Description

The World Language program is designed to promote sequential learning organized from the most basic to more complex skills.

Using a communicative, multi-sensory approach, the program additionally supports critical thinking skills. World Language is offered for 30 hours per year in grades 5 and 6. In 5th grade, students are introduced to Spanish only. In 6th grade, Spanish and French are offered in two 15 hour programs. The program is delivered on two days out of a six day cycle.
