THE DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION OF METHODS AND MATERIALS TO FACILITATE FOREIGN LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS.
JOHNSON, CHARLES E.; AND OTHERS
A COMPARISON WAS MADE OF TWO DIFFERENT METHODS OF SPANISH INSTRUCTION. A TOTAL OF 93 FOURTH-GRADERS WERE ORIGINALLY INVOLVED IN THE 3-YEAR STUDY. UPON COMPLETION OF THE PROGRAM, 32 SUBJECTS REMAINED IN THE CONTROL GROUP AND 34 WERE IN THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP. THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP RECEIVED INSTRUCTION BY TELEVISION AND TAPE RECORDINGS UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF NONSPECIALIZED TEACHERS. THE CONTROL GROUP RECEIVED INSTRUCTION FROM SPECIALIST TEACHERS OF SPANISH. THE AUDIOLINGUAL APPROACH WAS USED WITH ALL GROUPS. ACHIEVEMENT EVALUATION INVOLVED USE OF PICTORIAL TESTS, TAPE RECORDINGS, AND INTERVIEWS. THE AUTHOR CONCLUDED THAT GENERAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHERS WITH NO SPECIAL TRAINING IN FOREIGN LANGUAGES CAN SUCCESSFULLY TEACH FOREIGN LANGUAGE WITH PROPER TELEVISION AND TAPE RECORDED MATERIALS.
