World Languages, French

The Skyline French courses incorporate contemporary authentic resources that are aligned to the American Council on Teaching Foreign Language (ACTFL) standards and proficiency levels. This structure provides flexibility and support to varying student needs.

The curriculum offers UDL (Universal Design for Learning) support in every lesson, supporting students’ language mastery through alternate processes. These lesson supports include mini-lessons for differentiation, skill-building formative assessments, engaging interpersonal activities and detailed teacher guidance.

The Skyline French courses also include various types of assessments. There are many opportunities for students to engage in low stakes formative assessments as learning activities within each lesson. However, there are summative assessments for each lesson and unit. In addition, each unit concludes with an IPA (Integrated Performance Assessment) which evaluates students’ proficiency in three types of communication skills (interpretive, interpersonal and presentational). IPAs can be used as an interim assessment to evaluate student skills over 2-3 units.
