World Languages

World Language instruction is aligned to the ACTFL World-Readiness Standards for Teaching Language.  These standards revolve around five areas referred to as the 5Cs (communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities).  All standards at each language level are taught to each standard; however, the world language curriculum team has chosen priority standards that will be focused on and assessed more often to ensure readiness for the next level and college or career.   

World Language Mission Statement

Students in the Oskaloosa Community School District will be able to efficiently process and produce the target language in the areas of speaking, listening, reading, writing, and culture in order to prepare them to participate in a global society.
