ABSTRACT This article presents a model process for “bottom-up” teacher development of a proficiency-oriented, criterion-referenced second or foreign language curriculum. The process is designed for second and foreign language teachers and administrators at all levels of education (1) to enhance articulation and coherence of teaching objectives and practices between levels of language instruction and (2) to foster communicative teaching practices.
