Summary

The ACTFL (American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages) Performance Guidelines for K-12 Learners expand on the second language proficiency guidelines established in 1982 by focusing on second language use by students who participate in elementary, middle, and high school foreign language programs. Unlike adult language users, K-12 students are in a continuous process of cognitive development that influences their ability to perform language tasks, and they acquire their language skills in the controlled environment of the language classroom. The new guidelines take these factors into consideration as they set forth characteristics of language users at the various stages of learning. The materials included here are an introduction to the guidelines and their purpose, organization, and use, and a poster outlining the specific performance criteria for three learner ranges (novice, grade K-4, 5-8, or 9-10; intermediate, grade K-8 or 7-12; and pre-advanced, grade K-12) in six performance areas (comprehensibility, comprehension, language control, vocabulary use, communication strategies, cultural awareness). Within each performance area, criteria are given for interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational performance. (MSE)
