THE LANGUAGE INSTRUCTOR AND TEACHING MACHINES.
MUELLER, THEODORE
PROGRAMED LEARNING BASED ON CONTRASTIVE LINGUISTIC ANALYSIS CAN BE USED TO OVERCOME THE PREDICTABLE ERRORS MADE BY STUDENTS LEARNING A SECOND LANGUAGE. THE PROGRAM, WITH A LEARNING SEQUENCE ARRANGED SO THAT STUDENTS WILL AVOID MAKING ERRORS, CAN PROVIDE PRACTICE IN THE MECHANICS OF THE LANGUAGE, BUT IT HAS LIMITATIONS, FOR A STUDENT CANNOT ENGAGE IN COMMUNICATION WITH A MACHINE. THE TEACHER MUST SUPPLY THE CONDITIONS AND SITUATIONS IN WHICH STUDENTS, IN SMALL GROUPS, CAN NOT ONLY APPLY WHAT THEY HAVE LEARNED IN THE PROGRAMED PHASE, BUT ALSO COMMUNICATE AND CONVERSE WITH OTHER SPEAKERS OF THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE. THIS PAPER WAS READ AT THE SPRING CONFERENCE OF THE PSMLA (UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH, MAY 14, 1966) AND WAS PUBLISHED IN "THE BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA STATE MODERN LANGUAGE ASSOCIATION," VOLUME 45, NUMBER 1, DECEMBER 1966.
