Since 1989, CFLP has vigorously pursued the goal of challenging language professionals to prepare students to effectively participate in multilingual and multicultural societies by improving and expanding language programs in California. To accomplish this goal, CFLP and its partners will continue collaboration providing all California students access to and equity in world language programs. The Project strongly supports efforts to involve every language teacher in a supportive professional community which promotes linguistic and cultural competence and advocates for the retention, expansion and articulation of world language offerings across educational levels beginning in the elementary grades, within a context that respects diverse ideas and provides opportunities for leadership.
Accomplished teachers of world languages:
- Demonstrate a high level of proficiency in the languages and cultures they teach;
- Deliver instruction in the target language embedded in authentic cultural content and contexts that connect to relevant areas of interdisciplinary academic study;
- Provide instruction appropriate to the diverse needs of students and linked to progress on the “Language Learning Continuum” of the Foreign Language Framework for California Public Schools;
- Select, effectively utilize, adapt and create instructional materials to meet the specific needs of their students;
- Implement appropriate pedagogy for English learners and students with low skills in reading and writing for the acquisition of academic content knowledge and language;
- Provide leadership in collecting, analyzing and using data to reflect on practice and improve instruction;
- Actively contribute to the profession and communities beyond the classroom.
