Course Title: French II
Course/Unit Credit: 1
Teacher Licensure: Secondary French
French II develops and expands the fundamental skills introduced in French I. Aural comprehension, pronunciation, and speaking exercises facilitate oral communication. Additional vocabulary and grammar are introduced to lead to more advanced reading and writing. Authentic reading materials and audio/video recordings enrich instruction. The course is defined by the content standards of the Arkansas Foreign Language Curriculum Framework for French II and includes applications, problem solving, higher-order thinking skills, and performance-based, open-ended assessments with rubrics. Two years of the same foreign language is required by the Standards for Accreditation to be taught in Arkansas public high schools. French II may be used to partially fulfill this requirement. French I is a prerequisite for this course. Arkansas Department of Education approval is not required.
