WHAT RESEARCH TELLS US ABOUT THE EFFECTS OF FLES.
DONOGHUE, MILDRED R.
PROJECTS CONDUCTED IN A SAMPLING OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS HAVE PROVIDED A POSITIVE ANSWER TO THE CONCERNS OF MANY COMMUNITIES OVER THE VALUE OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS (FLES). THE RESEARCH PROVED THAT (1) EVEN THOUGH TIME HAD BEEN TAKEN FROM OTHER SUBJECTS, AVERAGE FLES PUPILS GENERALLY PERFORMED AS WELL AS OR BETTER THAN NON-FLES PUPILS, (2) FLES STUDENTS, ENTERING HIGH SCHOOL LANGUAGE CLASSES AT A HIGHER LEVEL THAN OTHERS, PERFORMED BETTER IN ALL SUBJECTS, (3) SUPERIOR STUDENTS WHO RECEIVED SUPPLEMENTARY FLES INSTRUCTION AFTER SCHOOL HOURS BEHAVED IN A MORE MATURE SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL MANNER THAN THE NON-FLES SUPERIOR STUDENTS, AND (4) FLES PUPILS TENDED TO HAVE POSITIVE ATTITUDES TOWARD THE PEOPLE WHOSE LANGUAGE THEY WERE STUDYING. THIS ARTICLE IS A REPRINT FROM "HISPANIA," VOLUME 48, NUMBER 3, SEPTEMBER 1965 AND IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM THE MATERIALS CENTER, MODERN LANGUAGE ASSOCIATION, NEW YORK, NEW YORK. (GJ)
