NORWEGIAN LANGUAGE TEACHING MATERIALS DEVELOPMENT PROJECT. FINAL REPORT.
CHAPMAN, KENNETH G.; AND OTHERS
LESSON MATERIALS FOR THE TEACHING OF NORWEGIAN WERE PREPARED FOR ELEMENTARY AND JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL LEVELS BY A GROUP OF SIX TEACHERS OF NORWEGIAN DURING A WORKSHOP HELD AT UCLA IN THE SUMMER OF 1966. THE SET OF 40 LESSONS FOR ELEMENTARY GRADES THAT WERE PRODUCED IN MIMEOGRAPHED FORM WERE PREPARED FOR THE USE OF CHILDREN WHOSE PARENTS OR GRANDPARENTS WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THEIR YOUNG ONES LEARN THE LANGUAGE OF THEIR FOREFATHERS. THE LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION IS PRESENTED IN THE CONTENT OF A GIRL'S VISIT WITH HER GRANDPARENTS IN A NORWEGIAN TOWN AND A BOY'S VISIT WITH RELATIVES ON A FARM. THESE LESSONS INCLUDE CONVERSATIONAL AND READING MATERIAL, DRILLS, EXERCISES OF VARIOUS TYPES, AND ACCOMPANYING WORD COUNTS. A SET OF 16 COMPLETE LESSONS, ENOUGH FOR AT LEAST 1 YEAR OF INSTRUCTION AT THE JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL WERE COMPLETED DURING THE WORKSHOP, PLUS BASIC CONVERSATIONS FOR AN ADDITIONAL 16 LESSONS. PARTICIPANTS IN THE PROJECT HAVE CARRIED THE DEVELOPMENT OF SOME OF THE LESSONS EVEN FURTHER SINCE THE END OF THE SUMMER WORKSHOP, AND THE COMPLETED WORK HAS BEEN USED FOR ACTUAL CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION. NO EVALUATIONS OF THE RESULTS, HOWEVER, WERE AVAILABLE FOR THIS REPORT. (AL)
