Without proficiency targets, teaching often becomes “covering material.” Current thinking informs us that when realistic proficiency targets are set for language courses, students are more likely to reach those targets and have a feeling that they can actually DO something with the language rather than just knowing rules about the language. Important to understand is that reaching proficiency targets is contingent upon intentional planning to get there. A look at the NCSSFL-ACTFL Can Do Statements will show how they can help teachers plan for and reach specific levels of proficiency and capture the student’s interest and commitment for learning at the same time.
