                                             Grade 8 Beginning Sequence
Excerpt from the North Carolina Standard Course of Study

The Beginning Sequential Program is designed for students starting the study of the language for the first time and/or for those
who have had minimal exposure to the language at previous grade levels.

This middle school program is sequential and expanded upon at grade 8. The beginning program is an introduction to the study of
the target language and its culture. It allows students to perform the most basic functions of the language and to become familiar
with some elements of its culture. The emphasis is placed on the development of the four skills (listening, speaking, reading, and
writing) with special attention given to the listening and speaking skills first within a given context extending outside of the
classroom when possible. The context focuses on adolescents’ lives, needs, and experiences, and includes an exposure to
everyday customs and lifestyles. Grammar is integrated throughout the course and is selected according to the language needs

A general introduction to the culture, its products (e.g. songs, games, food, traditions), perspectives (e.g. attitudes, values, beliefs),
and practices (patterns of social interaction) is integrated into all instruction. Students acquire some insight into how languages
and cultures work by comparing the target language and culture(s) to their own.

Integration of other disciplines is on-going throughout the curriculum.

This guide is for an A/B day schedule. This means that if a unit takes 8 days you can figure on 16 days in total. The plans are to
begin after the first two days of class allowing for introduction to course, issuing of textbooks, and other beginning of school tasks.)
The NC SCS goals and objectives are listed for each unit. These are goals and objectives that can be met by the various activities
and lessons in each unit. Please monitor your pacing so that this guide may be updated as needed.
