Module 1: Introduction to Wisconsin Standards
for Learning World Languages

Introduction: Learn...

The key shift in using standards to guide language programs is moving from an emphasis on teaching to a focus on learning. Standards tell us what the student does, not what the teacher does; the targeted performance for students is described, not what the teacher does to create that performance. In addition, there is a major shift to look at language learning not as an abstract study of vocabulary, grammar, and linguistics, but as a useful tool to meet the demands of contemporary life.

In your Planning Curriculum for Learning World Languages guide, please review page 6 which describes how the Wisconsin content standards are identified, their relationship to the 5 C's and language levels to describe student proficiency.
