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).

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.
