MATERIALS LIST, FOR USE BY TEACHERS OF MODERN FOREIGN LANGUAGES.
ALDEN, DOUGLAS W.
THE MODERN LANGUAGE ASSOCIATION (MLA) HAS PREPARED A LIST OF 1,717 TITLES AND SOURCES OF INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS FOR MODERN FOREIGN LANGUAGES IN ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS. PERTINENT INFORMATION ABOUT THEIR PURPOSE AND SUITABILITY FOR THE VARIOUS LEVELS OF INSTRUCTION IS PROVIDED. IN MARCH 1959, THE MLA BROUGHT TOGETHER A WORKING COMMITTEE OF 20 TO PLAN THE DETAILS OF ASSEMBLING AND ORGANIZING SUCH A LIST FOR USE BY TEACHERS, SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS, AND STATE EDUCATION OFFICIALS. BY JUNE 1959, THE LARGE NUMBER OF TEACHERS CIRCULARIZED BY THE COMMITTEE HAD TURNED IN TO THE MLA OFFICE ABOUT 1,500 FORMS LISTING MATERIALS AND PROVIDING SOME EVALUATIVE COMMENT. THE LIST IS CLASSIFIED IN THREE MAJOR CATEGORIES--(1) BY LANGUAGE DIVISION (FRENCH, GERMAN, ITALIAN, RUSSIAN, AND SPANISH), (2) BY LEVEL (ALL GRADES), AND (3) BY CATEGORIES OF MATERIALS (READERS, PERIODICALS, AND FILMSTRIPS).
