SURVEY OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE OFFERINGS AND ENROLLMENTS IN CALIFORNIA PUBLIC SCHOOLS, 1965-66, SECOND INSTALLMENT.
DUSEL, JOHN P.
THE SECOND INSTALLMENT TO THE FALL 1965, SURVEY OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE STUDY IN ELEMENTARY, UNIFIED, AND SECONDARY SCHOOL DISTRICTS OF CALIFORNIA REPORTS THAT, FROM THE SIXTH THROUGH THE EIGHTH GRADES, DAILY INSTRUCTION IN FOREIGN LANGUAGES IS MORE COMMON THAN LESS FREQUENT SCHEDULING AND THAT ELEMENTARY AND UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICTS MORE THAN MEET THE MINIMUM TIME RECOMMENDED BY THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION. UNFORTUNATELY, IN MOST DISTRICTS, STUDENTS WITH SUCH FOREIGN LANGUAGE PREPARATION ENTER BEGINNERS' CLASSES IN HIGH SCHOOL. MANY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DISTRICTS ADMIT THEY HAVE NOT YET WORKED OUT PLACEMENT PROCEDURES BETWEEN THEIR SCHOOLS AND JUNIOR OR 4-YEAR HIGH SCHOOLS, THOUGH EFFECTIVE ARTICULATION WOULD ELIMINATE CONFUSION AND DUPLICATION OF EFFORT. IN ADDITION TO STATISTICAL TABLES ON THE TIME SPENT TEACHING FOREIGN LANGUAGES, THIS REPORT INCLUDES LISTS OF INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS USED IN GRADES 1 TO 8 OF THE CALIFORNIA PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN FRENCH, GERMAN, AND SPANISH. THIS REPORT IS AN ISSUE OF THE "FOREIGN LANGUAGE NEWSLETTER," VOLUME 6, NUMBER 1, FEBRUARY 1967, AND IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM THE OFFICE OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE PROGRAMS, CALIFORNIA STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION, 721 CAPITOL MALL, SACRAMENTO 95814.
