REVISIONS OF THE ALLP FRENCH PROGRAM AND SECOND TRIAL USE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ARKON, 1964-65.
MUELLER, THEODORE H.
REVISIONS OF "THE ALLP FRENCH PROGRAM" (A 1-YEAR PROGRAMED COURSE FOR THE COLLEGE AND ADULT LEVEL EMPHASIZING ORAL SKILLS) AND THE RESULTS OF A SECOND TRIAL USE OF THE REVISED PROGRAM WERE REPORTED. THE REVISED FRENCH PROGRAM WAS DESIGNED TO OVERCOME THE SHORTCOMINGS OF THE ORIGINAL PROGRAM AND SOUGHT TO BE MORE EFFECTIVE, LESS TIME CONSUMING, AND MORE ACCEPTABLE TO THE STUDENTS. THE QUESTION OF TOTAL SELF-INSTRUCTION VERSUS VARIOUS COMBINATIONS OF CLASS AND LABORATORY SITUATIONS WAS CONSIDERED. SEVERAL POSSIBILITIES OF STAFFING THE CLASS AND LABORATORY WERE CONSIDERED. TRIAL USE OF "THE REVISED ALLP FRENCH PROGRAM" PROVED QUITE SUCCESSFUL ON THE COLLEGE LEVEL, AND THE DROPOUT RATE WAS SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED. ALTHOUGH RELIANCE ON SELF-INSTRUCTION WAS REDUCED AND A GREATER ROLE ASSIGNED TO THE INSTRUCTOR, THE PROGRAM PROMISES EVENTUALLY TO ACCOMMODATE LARGE CLASSES AT THE ELEMENTARY LEVEL OF LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION WITHOUT AFFECTING THE EXCELLENCE OF RESULTS. THE PROGRAM ALSO PROMISES THE USE OF STAFF TIME WITH GREATER EFFICIENCY, THUS REDUCING INSTRUCTIONAL COSTS. RELATED INFORMATION MAY BE FOUND IN ED 010 487. (GD)
