The basic components of the lessons include discussions, presentations, Language Lab activities, grammar overview and practice activities, authentic literary and journalistic readings, authentic Italian media and broadcasts, bi-weekly personal journals, and assigned and spontaneous conversations, e-mails, and compositions. 

 

The three modes of communication – Interpersonal, Interpretive, and Presentational – as described in the 2015 ACTFL (American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages) World-Readiness Standards for Learning Languages are evidenced in each of the six identified curricular themes: 
  • Contemporary Life
  • Personal and Public Identities
  • Families and Communities
  • Science and Technology
  • Global Challenges
  • Beauty and Aesthetics. 
*Subthemes exist within each theme as well as across themes.
 

There are two speaking tasks in this section:

  • Interpersonal Speaking: Participate in 5 exchanges in a simulated conversation (20 seconds for each response). For this conversation, you will be provided with a preview of the conversation, including an outline of each exchange.
  • Presentational Speaking: Deliver a 2-minute presentation in response to a prompt in which you compare a cultural feature of an Italian-speaking community with which you are familiar to your own community or another community.
Students are assessed on their ability to:
§ Maintain the exchange
§ Provide the required information with elaboration and details
§ Communicate in a clear and understandable manner, using appropriate and varied grammar, syntax, and sentence structure; and a consistent register that is appropriate for the conversation
§ Use appropriate pronunciation, intonation, and pacing to enhance comprehension
§ Use varied and appropriate vocabulary, including idiomatic language
