LINGUISTIC PREPARATION OF TEACHERS.
MERRIMAN, DERALD
FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHERS SHOULD HAVE TRAINING IN AUDIOLINGUAL COMPETENCIES, LINGUISTICS, COMPOSITION, CONVERSATION, CIVILIZATION, AND CULTURE. ONLY THOSE WHO TEACH ADVANCED COURSES NEED A STRONG BACKGROUND IN LITERATURE AND STYLE, BUT TEACHERS AT ALL LEVELS, AND ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO INSTRUCT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PUPILS, NEED TRAINING IN ARTICULATORY PHONETICS, PHONEMICS, MORPHEMICS, AND SYNTAX. AN UNDERSTANDING OF LINGUISTIC PRINCIPLES WILL ENABLE TEACHERS TO HANDLE LEARNING PROBLEMS CAUSED BY THE INTERFERENCE OF THE NATIVE LANGUAGE. BECAUSE MANY TEACHERS WHO HAVE HAD SEVERAL LITERATURE COURSES CLAIM THAT THESE HAVE NOT PROVIDED THEM WITH THE PRACTICAL SKILLS THEY NEED IN TEACHING, MORE TRAINING IN TEACHING THESE BASIC SKILLS IS NEEDED IN UNIVERSITIES AND WORKSHOPS. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN THE "ILLINOIS JOURNAL OF EDUCATION," VOLUME 57, NUMBER 6, OCTOBER 1966. (AS)
