TELEVISION IN THE SERVICE OF FLES TEACHER TRAINING--THE ISU FOREIGN LANGUAGE PROJECT.
HORVAY, FRANK D.
AT ILLINOIS STATE UNIVERSITY, SENIOR ELEMENTARY EDUCATION STUDENTS SERVED AS RESOURCE PERSON TRAINEES (RPTS) IN A PROJECT DESIGNED TO PREPARE THEM TO BECOME EITHER FULL-TIME TEACHERS OF FOREIGN LANGUAGES IN THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS (FLES) OR REGULAR ELEMENTARY TEACHERS WHO COULD BE ABLE TO ASSIST IN FLES INSTRUCTION PRESENTED THROUGH AUDIOVISUAL MEDIA. THE RPTS, WHO HAD A MINIMUM OF 19 HOURS OF SPANISH AND A METHODS COURSE, WERE ASSIGNED AS DRILL LEADERS TO THIRD-, FOURTH-, AND FIFTH-GRADE CLASSES IN WHICH INSTRUCTION IN SPANISH WAS GIVEN BY TELEVISION (EXPERIMENTAL GROUP). THEIR DUTIES INCLUDED CONDUCTING A 5-MINUTE DRILL SESSION AFTER EACH 10-MINUTE TELEVISION LESSON, MAKING SURE THAT ALL PUPILS PARTICIPATED IN THE TELEVISION LESSON, AND SERVING AS LIAISON PERSONS BETWEEN THE PUPILS AND THE TELEVISION TEACHER. THE ACHIEVEMENT OF THE SPANISH CLASSES WAS COMPARED WITH THAT OF FRENCH CLASSES TAUGHT BY A SPECIALIST IN THE FLES PROGRAM ALREADY OPERATING IN THE SCHOOL (CONTROL GROUP). THOUGH FINAL RESULTS ARE NOT YET AVAILABLE, THERE ARE ENCOURAGING REPORTS REGARDING THE ACHIEVEMENT OF THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP IN PRONUNCIATION, COMPREHENSION, STRUCTURE, AND ATTITUDE TOWARD FOREIGN LANGUAGE STUDY. THIS PAPER WAS PREPARED FOR THE MODERN LANGUAGE CONFERENCE, "AUDIO-VISUAL MATERIALS IN TEACHER PREPARATION" (29TH, DECEMBER 28, 1965). (AM)
