REPORTS OF PARTICIPANT COMMITTEES OF THE NDEA FOREIGN LANGUAGE LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE (CENTRAL WASHINGTON STATE COLLEGE, SUMMER 1966).
COMMITTEES WERE SET UP AT A FOREIGN LANGUAGE LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE AND ASSIGNED TO REPORT ON DIFFERENT PROBLEM AREAS OF LANGUAGE TEACHING. IN THE FIRST REPORT, "COMMUNICATION LEADS TO UNDERSTANDING," THE PROBLEMS INVOLVED WITH GAINING COMMUNITY SUPPORT AT THE START OF A NEW LANGUAGE PROGRAM AND THE WAY SCHOOLS SHOULD HANDLE THESE PROBLEMS ARE DISCUSSED. THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE SUPERVISOR IS THE TOPIC OF THE NEXT REPORT IN WHICH HIS MAJOR RESPONSIBILITIES ARE DISCUSSED UNDER SUCH HEADINGS AS PERSONNEL, CURRICULUM, AND CONTINUING TEACHER EDUCATION. ANOTHER REPORT SETS UP A CHECKLIST FOR EVALUATING EVERY ASPECT OF A FLES PROGRAM AND THEN OUTLINES THE IMPORTANT FACTORS THAT DETERMINE A STRONG FOREIGN LANGUAGE PROGRAM IN THE JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL. FOLLOWING THIS ARE TWO OTHER REPORTS IN WHICH GUIDELINES ARE OFFERED FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A LANGUAGE PROGRAM FOR GRADES 7 TO 12, AND SUGGESTIONS ARE MADE ABOUT THE METHODS AND MATERIALS TO BE USED FOR ADVANCED LANGUAGE COURSES. FINALLY, THE GOALS OF TEACHING A FOREIGN LANGUAGE ARE DISCUSSED TO ENABLE OTHERS, EITHER DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY INVOLVED, TO UNDERSTAND AND EVALUATE A LANGUAGE PROGRAM. (SS)
