(p.115) 6 Standards of Foreign Language Teaching The Five C’s
On Being a Language Teacher

Yale University Press

This chapter discusses the National Standards Collaborative Board’s standards for language instruction, called the Five C’s: communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities. Communication, the most important of the five standards, has three categories: interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational. Culture involves incorporating culture into lesson plans. The connections standard refers to linking language instruction to the other subject areas that students are learning in school. The comparisons standard requires students to recognize patterns, make predictions, and analyze similarities and differences. The communities standard refers to teachers learning about the importance of creating venues for students to use their new language outside the classroom.

Keywords:   language teachers, teaching, pedagogical approach, language instruction, communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, communities
