RESOURCES FOR LANGUAGE AND AREA STUDIES, A REPORT ON AN INVENTORY OF THE LANGUAGE AND AREA CENTERS SUPPORTED BY THE NATIONAL DEFENSE EDUCATION ACT OF 1958.
AXELROD, JOSEPH; BIGELOW, DONALD N.
LANGUAGE AND AREA CENTERS, WHICH ARE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS CARRIED ON JOINTLY BY HUMANISTS, SOCIAL SCIENTISTS, AND HISTORIANS, WERE INVENTORIED BY REPRESENTATIVES OF THE AMERICAN COUNCIL ON EDUCATION. THIS INVENTORY ON 46 CENTERS WAS MADE TO BRING TOGETHER INFORMATION ON (1) HOW THE CENTERS WERE ORGANIZED, (2) THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS ENROLLED IN LANGUAGE AND AREA DISCIPLINES, (3) THE METHOD OF TEACHING LANGUAGES, AND (4) THE RELATION BETWEEN LANGUAGE AND AREA STUDIES. THIS INVENTORY WAS PRIMARILY DESCRIPTIVE. EACH OF THE CENTERS WAS VISITED BY ONE OR MORE OF THE STAFF OF THE SURVEY TEAM. HOWEVER, SINCE THE OBJECT OF THIS REPORT WAS TO PRESENT A COMPOSITE PICTURE, USUALLY NO PARTICULAR CENTER WAS IDENTIFIED IN THE TEXT. THE REPORT WAS ORGANIZED INTO THREE CHAPTERS, NONE OF WHICH STANDS ALONE. CHAPTER ONE PRESENTED THE CENTER CONCEPT. CHAPTER TWO DISCUSSED THE CURRENT RESOURCES AND PRACTICES OF THE CENTERS. CHAPTER THREE WAS A PREDICTION AS TO THE FUTURE LIFE OF THE CENTERS. APPENDIXES WERE INCLUDED ON THE TOPICS OF THE AUDIOLINGUAL APPROACH, CENTER STATISTICS, AND CONFERENCE PARTICIPANTS. (TC)
