A FIELD TEST OF THREE APPROACHES TO THE TEACHING OF SPANISH IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS.
NEWMARK, GERALD; AND OTHERS
TO HELP ADMINISTRATORS PLAN A SPANISH PROGRAM, AN 18-MONTH PROJECT WAS CONDUCTED TO EVALUATE THREE DIFFERENT METHODS OF TEACHING SPANISH TO SIXTH GRADERS. FOR THIS EVALUATION, SUCH INDEPENDENT VARIABLES AS STUDENT, TEACHER, CLASSROOM, AND DISTRICT WERE CONSIDERED, ALONG WITH DEPENDENT VARIABLES OF STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT IN DIFFERENT SKILLS. PART I OF THIS REPORT MEASURES THE THREE METHODS--TELEVISION INSTRUCTION, PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION, AND AUDIOLINGUAL INSTRUCTION BY A SPECIALLY TRAINED FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHER--TO DETERMINE IF THEIR OBJECTIVES WERE ACHIEVED. PART II COVERS CONCLUSIONS ABOUT THESE THREE METHODS BASED ON THE DATA COLLECTED, AND INCLUDES RECOMMENDATIONS TO SCHOOL DISTRICTS AND COURSE DEVELOPERS. COURSE OBJECTIVES, DATA ON STUDENT PERFORMANCE, SAMPLE QUESTIONNAIRES, AND REPORT FORMS ARE FOUND IN THE APPENDIXES. THERE ARE 144 TABLES THROUGHOUT THIS REPORT TO CLARIFY EVERY ASPECT OF THE PROJECT. ALSO INCLUDED IS A PROGRAM EVALUATION AND REVIEW TECHNIQUE ANALYSIS THAT REPLACES BAR CHARTS WITH A NETWORK TO SHOW THE INTERRELATIONSHIPS AMONG THE ACTIVITIES THAT LED TO THE COMPLETION OF THE PROJECT.
