WORLD LANGUAGES

Because Carver is a smaller school, we offer Spanish as our world language. To earn an advanced diploma, students must take and pass 3 sequential levels of Spanish.

The World Languages Department supports the mission of Chesterfield County Public School. The department recognizes the importance and academic benefits that come with learning a second language. The ability to communicate in a second language is a desirable, if not essential, goal for all students. Guided by a Project Based Learning approach to instruction, the department supports the acquisition of a second language as a life skill for all students. Embedded in our World Language curricula are lessons that teach students to:

  • Express ideas in both verbal and written modes
  • Demonstrate an awareness and appreciation of language, culture, media, and the arts using all four target areas: listening, speaking, reading and writing
  • Immersed in variety of resources and use of technologies
  • Recognize different perspectives and acknowledging individual’s rights to opinion
