Use these pages to help students understand what proficiency and performance look like according to rubrics used on the ACTFL Assessment of Performance toward Proficiency in Languages and the ACTFL/NCSSFL Can-Do Statements.
Two documents are included:
1) AAPPL foldables
These illustrate levels N1 through 'I1 on the AAPPL rubrics and break down some basic skills that characterize each. Flaps open so you can define what each level will represent grade-wise as the course progresses (I, for example, start with N3 as an A and end up with I1 as an A).
2) Can-Do cone
I selected key terms from the ACTFL Can-Do statements for Novice Low through Intermediate Low in all five categories (listening, reading, interpersonal, speaking, and writing) for students to organize in the proficiency cone to see what topics we'll address at each level.
(HINT: I also had them record some verbs and text types from the Can-Dos for each language skill (listening, reading, speaking, and writing) under the AAPPL foldables.)
