The purpose of this course is to enable students whose heritage language is Haitian Creole to develop, maintain, and enhance proficiency in their heritage language by reinforcing and expanding skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing, as well as Haitian Creole grammar skills acquired in Haitian Creole for Haitian Creole Speakers 3. Students are exposed to a variety of Haitian Creole literary genres, authors, and technical styles from a variety of cultural authentic sources. Language Arts Standards are also included in this course to enable students to become literate in Haitian Creole and gain a better understanding of the nature of their own language as well as other languages to be acquired.
The course content will continue reflecting the cultural values of Haitian Creole language and societies.
