  • A more integrated approach to the development of required Content, Curricular Competencies, and transferable Big Ideas about language learning
  • An emphasis on the exploration of culture as a vehicle for acquiring deeper understanding of language, of others, and of one’s own identity
  • An expanded definition of text, which now includes an even wider range of text types
  • Recognition of the important role that stories play in the sharing of knowledge, ideas, and feelings in a meaningful way.
