State Standards

Just FYI, this is the link to our new (December 2009) Colorado State Standards.
You can see how they line up with the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines. If anyone who reads this blog is currently working to modify existing outdated standards at the state level to properly align with ACTFL, please feel free to refer to this link in your work. No need to reinvent the wheel, as many states begin now in earnest to do this work which has been recently completed in California, Oregon, and Colorado.

  1. Ben,
    Off-topic request: could you move the “search” function higher up (like above or just below the calendar). I use your site a lot (as a substitute for coaching or workshops) and I use the search function far more often than the categories and I never use the archives by date. Maybe someone remembers when you posted that entry they’re looking for, but that person ain’t me. Thanks.

  2. Marc I am trying to figure out how to move it. It’s kind of confusing. I might add that I don’t think that the search function is as effective, for me at least, as simply googling “ben slavic blog” – and then whatever it is you are looking for. That is Carla’s idea and she is the one who can actually find stuff here. It’s amazing.
