Chinese V

CHINESE V:  Chinese V, a course based on Indiana’s Academic Standards for World Languages, provides opportunities for students to interact and exchange information in culturally and socially authentic and/or simulated situations to demonstrate integration of language skills with understanding of Chinese-speaking culture. This course emphasizes the use of appropriate formats, varied vocabulary and complex language structures within student communication, both oral and written, as well as the opportunity to produce and present creative material using the language. Additionally, students will continue to develop understanding of Chinese-speaking culture through investigating the origin and impact of significant events and contributions unique to the target culture, comparing and contrasting elements that shape cultural identity in the target culture and the student’s own culture, and explaining how the target language and culture have impacted other communities. This course further emphasizes the integration of concepts and skills from other content areas with the target language and cultural understanding, as well as the exploration of community resources intended for native Chinese speakers.
