CURRICULUM ARTICULATION IN FOREIGN LANGUAGES, GRADES FOUR THROUGH TWELVE.
RUSSO, BEN J.
AN ORGANIZATIONAL PLAN BASED ON THE USE OF SCHEDULE MODULES OFFERS A SYSTEMATIC APPROACH TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A WELL-ARTICULATED FOREIGN LANGUAGE PROGRAM FROM ELEMENTARY THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL. A THREE-TRACK SEQUENCE IS SUITABLE FOR SCHOOL DISTRICTS WISHING TO PROVIDE SUCH A PROGRAM. WITH THIS PLAN STUDENTS CAN BEGIN FOREIGN LANGUAGE STUDY IN GRADE 4 AND COMPLETE SIX STAGES (9 YEARS), IN GRADE SEVEN AND COMPLETE FIVE STAGES (6 YEARS), OR IN GRADE NINE AND COMPLETE FOUR STAGES (4 YEARS). THE PROPORTION OF TIME DEVOTED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF LISTENING AND SPEAKING SKILLS CHANGES AS A SEQUENCE PROGRESSES, AND VARIES FROM ONE TRACK TO ANOTHER ACCORDING TO AGE DIFFERENCES. PHASE I, WHETHER TAKEN IN ELEMENTARY, JUNIOR, OR SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL, ALWAYS CONTAINS THE SAME NUMBER OF SCHEDULE MODULES OR TIME BLOCKS IN ORDER TO PROVIDE FOR ORDERLY PROGRESSION OF STUDENTS TO THE NEXT PHASE. A SYLLABUS AND A STRONG SUPERVISORY PROGRAM ARE ESSENTIAL IN MAINTAINING CONTINUITY WHEN THIS TYPE OF PROGRAM IS PUT INTO OPERATION. DIAGRAMS OF THE ARRANGEMENT OF SCHEDULE MODULES FOR EACH OF THE THREE TRACKS ARE GIVEN. (AUTHOR/AM)
