General Course Information and Notes
GENERAL NOTESMajor Concepts/Content:
M/J World Language Humanities for International Studies Beginning introduces students to a variety of areas in the humanities taught in the target language. The content should include, but not be limited to the following: development of skills in disciplines, such as, history, geography, philosophy, and the arts. 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 state academic standards (SAS).
Students must demonstrate a working knowledge of the target language. Course content requirements for the two-course sequence M/J World Language Humanities for International Studies, Beginning (0710000) and Intermediate (0710010) are equivalent to World Language Humanities for International Studies 1 (0714300). Course content requirements for the three-course sequence that includes M/J World Language Humanities for International Studies, Beginning (0710000), Intermediate (0710010), and Advanced (0710020) may be equivalent to the two-course sequence World Language Humanities for International Studies 1 (0714300) and World Language Humanities for International Studies 2 (0714310).
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 World Language Humanities 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.
Florida’s Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking (B.E.S.T.) Standards
This course includes Florida’s B.E.S.T. ELA Expectations (EE) and Mathematical Thinking and Reasoning Standards (MTRs) for students. Florida educators should intentionally embed these standards within the content and their instruction as applicable. For guidance on the implementation of the EEs and MTRs, please visit https://www.cpalms.org/Standards/BEST_Standards.aspx and select the appropriate B.E.S.T. Standards package.
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.
