Disciplinary Literacy Training - World Languages Team

The goal of the Disciplinary Literacy Training on April 29 is to create an online module that all teachers can access to earn literacy renewal credits. The World Languages Team (pictured below in order from left to right), consisting of 7 members, will provide input and examples on what needs to be included in the World Language portion of the online module.

  1. Mariah Smith - UNC Chapel Hill
  2. Dora Davis - New Hanover County Schools (Murray MS)
  3. Hector Samudio - Caldwell County Schools (Gamewell MS)
  4. Jennifer Solis - Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools (Hanes Magnet MS)
  5. Stefanie Boone - Wake County Public School System (East Garner MS)
  6. Brian Bryant - Research Triangle Charter Academy
  7. Sharon Tian - North Carolina Virtual Public School

World Language Resources:
Clarifying Objectives by Course

The resources below have been compiled from the World Language wiki page that contains sets of Clarifying Objectives for courses by exit proficiency expectations or student outcomes. These resource documents have been compiled from the proficiency charts in the World Language Essential Standards, which are detailed in the Unpacking Documents for different programs.
Exploratory Language

Middle School Exploratory Language courses meet less than 90 minutes per week and/or are courses of short duration, such as 6-weeks or 9-weeks, which are designed to introduce students to one or more languages and to teach them about different cultures. These courses are sometimes part of a "wheel" or rotation of courses designed to create interest in future course offerings and allow students to explore languages they might take at the high school level.
Middle School Beginning
Alphabetic
