A NEW DESIGN FOR TEACHING FOREIGN LANGUAGES USING DRAMATIC MOTION PICTURES AND PROGRAMED LEARNING MATERIALS.
NEWMARK, GERALD
A PROPOSED PROJECT IS DESCRIBED THAT AIMS AT IMPROVING LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION METHODS AND AUGMENTING THE CAPABILITIES OF SCHOOLS FOR TEACHING FOREIGN LANGUAGE EFFECTIVELY, EVEN WHERE A SHORTAGE OF SKILLED LANGUAGE TEACHERS EXISTS. IT IS PROPOSED THAT THESE GOALS BE ACHIEVED THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN AUDIO-LINGUAL-VISUAL COURSE, UTILIZING DRAMATIC MOTION PICTURES AND PROGRAMED LEARNING MATERIALS AS PRINCIPLE INSTRUMENTS OF INSTRUCTION. THESE MATERIALS WILL BE DESIGNED--TO INSTILL IN STUDENTS A POSITIVE ATTITUDE TOWARD LEARNING A FOREIGN LANGUAGE, TO DEVELOP STUDENT CONFIDENCE IN HIMSELF REGARDING HIS ABILITY, TO MAKE POSSIBLE INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP SELF-INSTRUCTION PROGRAMS, ENABLING MORE PUPILS TO STUDY FOREIGN LANGUAGE, TO FACILITATE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE AUDIOLINGUAL APPROACH AND ACHIEVEMENT OF AUDIOLINGUAL TEACHING OBJECTIVES IN COURSES CONDUCTED BY TEACHERS HAVING LIMITED FOREIGN LANGUAGE COMPETENCY, TO TAKE OVER PART OF THE TEACHING FUNCTION, ENABLING QUALIFIED TEACHERS TO MAKE THEIR SKILLS AVAILABLE TO A LARGER NUMBER OF STUDENTS, AND TO MAKE POSSIBLE NEW APPROACHES TO THE USE OF TELEVISION IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION. THE PRINCIPLE ELEMENTS IN THE SYSTEM WILL BE MOTION PICTURES, PROGRAMED LEARNING MATERIALS, AND QUALIFIED TEACHERS. EACH WILL FUNCTION IN THE MANNER IN WHICH IT IS BEST SUITED TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE LEARNING PROCESS.
