  1. Demonstrate correct basic grammar usage in controlled situations, in both oral (signed) and written communication in the target language
  2. Demonstrate basic aural comprehension by responding appropriately to spoken questions, statements and prompts in the target language
  3. Demonstrate more advanced skills in critical thinking at upper levels of the target language
  4. Appreciate cultural differences among peoples and understand issues from a variety of perspectives
  5. Succeed in cross-cultural or global interactions
  6. In optimal situations,students will participate in study abroad immersion experiences and interdisciplinary global studies courses in other departments


--- MODERN LANGUAGES Problem Solving and Critical Thinking SLO (from 2005) Where does this SLO fit in with the general ones?
MODERN LANGUAGES
In preparing students for upper division work in languages and transfer to four year schools, we teach students to approach problem solving through communicative fluency in grammar, reading, writing and expression/reception, in an appropriate cultural context.


Think about how these programmatic SLOs relate to the College Learning Outcomes above. Feel free to edit, expand or change them. Try to make a program SLO for each College Learning Outcome with scores of 3 or higher on the matrix.
