    focuses on the integration of authentic resources including online print, audio, and audiovisual resources, as well as traditional pront resources that include literature, 
    essays, and magazine and newspaper articles with the goal of providing a rich, diverse learning experience. Students communicate using the rich, advanced vocabulary and linguistic structures as they build proficiency in all modes of communication toward the pre-advanced level as defined in the ACTFL Performance Guidelines for K-12 learners.
