The 2019 Nebraska World Language StandardsWorld Standards Cover 2019

The Nebraska World Language Standards describe the knowledge and skills that students should learn, but they do not prescribe particular curriculum, lessons, teaching techniques, or activities. These standards create a framework for teaching and learning, and they articulate a trajectory for knowledge acquisition across all grade levels. This ensures that student learning builds on prior knowledge and becomes more in-depth over time. Standards describe what students are expected to know and be able to do, while locally defined curriculum and instructional materials are used to help students master the standards.
