STUDY CONFERENCE ON TEACHING ARABIC AT THE SECONDARY SCHOOL LEVEL. FINAL REPORT.
ATIYA, AZIZ
A STUDY CONFERENCE WAS HELD IN SALT LAKE CITY IN 1963 ON THE TEACHING OF ARABIC AT THE SECONDARY SCHOOL LEVEL. THE DISCUSSION WAS CONCERNED PRIMARILY WITH THE FOLLOWING TOPICS--(1) ADEQUACY OF THE AVAILABLE KHOURY ARABIC MATERIALS, (2) THE MEANS OF PERFORMING ANY NECESSARY REVISION OF THE MATERIALS, (3) THE MEANS OF REPRODUCING THE TEXTS AND RECORDINGS FOR ADDITIONAL EXPERIMENTAL USE, AND (4) THE ESTABLISHMENT OF ADDITIONAL SECONDARY SCHOOL ARABIC LANGUAGE PROGRAMS. THE CONFEREES AGREED TO ESTABLISH AN INFORMAL NEWSLETTER. THEY ALSO AGREED THAT A SUITABLE SET OF TEACHING MATERIALS WOULD (1) PRESENT "MODERN STANDARD ARABIC," (2) HAVE THOSE LESSONS THAT FOCUSED ON DIALOG OR DIALOG-NARRATIVE MATERIALS BE REINFORCED BY DRILLS ON THE SOUND AND STRUCTURE SYSTEMS OF THE LANGUAGE, (3) PROVIDE MATERIALS FOR TEACHING READING AND WRITING, (4) WOULD HAVE AUDIO RECORDINGS OF BOTH EGYPTIAN AND SYRIAN, AND (5) WOULD INCLUDE A TEACHER'S MANUAL. HOPE WAS ALSO EXPRESSED THAT EVERY EFFORT WOULD BE MADE TO USE THE MATERIALS PREPARED BY DR. JOSEPH KHOURY AS THE BASIS FOR ANY FURTHER WORK THAT MIGHT BE DONE. (TC)
