THE DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION OF AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHING TECHNIQUE.
GALAS, EVANGELINE M.
THE DEGREE OF SUCCESS THAT MIGHT BE EXPECTED FROM THE USE OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE RECORDS BY AN ELEMENTARY CLASSROOM TEACHER WITH LITTLE OR NO KNOWLEDGE OF THE LANGUAGE BEING TAUGHT WAS INVESTIGATED. TECHNIQUES AND PROCEDURES WERE OUTLINED IN A TEACHER'S MANUAL WRITTEN ESPECIALLY TO ASSIST THE TEACHER IN GUIDING CLASSES THROUGH THE LESSONS ON THE RECORD. THE SAMPLE CONSISTED OF 563 ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS IN 20 CLASSES. RECORDINGS OF CLASS SESSIONS WERE MADE FOR EVALUATIVE PURPOSES. IT WAS FOUND THAT (1) CHILDREN'S MISPRONUNCIATIONS REFLECTED RECORDING DISC SHORTCOMINGS, (2) THE SING-SONG EFFECT OF CHORUS REPETITION HAD A NEGATIVE EFFECT ON NORMAL PACE, RHYTHM, AND INTONATION PATTERNS, AND (3) THE CHILDREN DID NOT MASTER THE PHONETICS OF THE LANGUAGE STUDIED.
