General Course Information and Notes
GENERAL NOTESMajor Concepts/Content:
M/J Language and Literature for International Studies 2 builds upon the language skills and cultural knowledge of native speakers. The student will develop communicative skills in all 3 modes of communication and cross-cultural understanding. Emphasis is placed on proficient communication in the language. An introduction to reading and writing is also included as well as culture, connections, comparisons, and communities. This is a one-year course.
This course shall integrate the Goal 3 Student Performance Standards of the Florida System of School Improvement and Accountability as appropriate to the content and processes of the subject matter. It also must reflect appropriate Sunshine State Standards benchmarks.
Special Note. This course is intended for students who are already proficient in the language. Course content requirements for the two-course sequence M/J Language and Literature for International Studies 1 (0710030) and M/J Language and Literature for International Studies 2 (0710040) are equivalent to Language and Literature for International Studies 1 (0715305). Course content requirements for the two-course sequence that includes M/J Language and Literature for International Studies 1 (0710030) and M/J Language and Literature for International Studies 2 (0710040) may be equivalent to the two-course sequence Language and Literature for International Studies 1 (0715305) and Language and Literature for International Studies 2 (0715315).
It is each district's school board's responsibility to determine high school world languages placement policies for those students who complete the M/J Language and Literature for International Studies sequences in middle school.
The standards and benchmarks listed for this course are aligned with the expected levels of language proficiency, rather than grade levels.
English Language Development ELD Standards Special Notes Section:
Teachers are required to provide listening, speaking, reading and writing instruction that allows English language learners (ELL) to communicate for social and instructional purposes within the school setting. For the given level of English language proficiency and with visual, graphic, or interactive support, students will interact with grade level words, expressions, sentences and discourse to process or produce language necessary for academic success. The ELD standard should specify a relevant content area concept or topic of study chosen by curriculum developers and teachers which maximizes an ELL’s need for communication and social skills.
