MPS World Language Curriculum

The K-12 World Languages Curriculum identifies what all students should know and be able to do in French and Spanish. Each grade or course is based upon the Standards For Foreign Language Learning Preparing for the 21st Century and the Common Core State Standards for World Languages and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects.

 World Languages Mission Statement 

Our mission is to provide a comprehensive, integrated, and differentiated World Languages curriculum which prepares students linguistically and culturally to communicate in a global world.   

World Languages Philosophy Statement

 In Middletown Public Schools, we believe the World Languages Program will:

  •  facilitate the learning cycle of World Languages through the five Cs (communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities), the Common Core of English Language Arts Standards, and the Applied Learning Standards. 
  • differentiate instruction by varying content, process, and product.  
  • encourage students to become confident and effective communicators, critical readers and thinkers, and life-long learners.  
  • employ best practices of second language acquisition.  
  • establish clear expectations and hold all students to high standards.  
  • provide opportunities, encouragement, and the competency to pursue life’s goals as informed contributors to a diverse and global society.  
  • use common formative and summative assessments to drive instruction.  
  • utilize technology to enhance student learning and support effective teaching.  
  • integrate instruction with other disciplines 
  • uniquely provide opportunities for interaction in our global world which are available through the study of World Languages.
