RUSSIAN FOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS--THE NEW YORK STATE SYLLABUS. AN EVALUATION.
ZILINSKY, PIETER
A REVIEW AND EVALUATION OF THE N.Y. STATE SYLLABUS, "RUSSIAN FOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS," REVEALS THAT IT PROVIDES GUIDELINES FOR THE STRENGTHENING OF RUSSIAN PROGRAMS IN THE STATE. IT DESCRIBES A 4- TO 6-YEAR SEQUENCE OF STUDY DIVIDED INTO LEVELS, WHICH, HOWEVER, DO NOT NECESSARILY CORRESPOND TO THE SCHOOL GRADES. EACH LEVEL DOES CONTAIN MORE TOPICS AND SUBDIVISIONS ON THE LANGUAGE SKILLS AND CULTURE THAN THE CORRESPONDING FRENCH SYLLABUS. WHILE THE RUSSIAN SYLLABUS GIVES MUCH VALUABLE HELP WITH TEACHING TECHNIQUES, IT REMAINS TOO VAGUE ABOUT DEFINING EVALUATION OF CONTENT AND STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT AT EACH LEVEL AND ABOUT OBJECTIVES OF THE FOUR LANGUAGE SKILLS AT EACH LEVEL. THE GREATEST WEAKNESS LIES IN THE LACK OF SENSITIVITY TO THE TEACHING AND LEARNING OF SPECIFICS THAT ARE PECULIAR TO RUSSIAN, THOUGH THE VERY FACT OF ITS APPEARANCE PLACES N.Y. STATE AMONG THE LEADERS OF SECONDARY SCHOOL RUSSIAN STUDY IN THE U.S. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT A MEETING OF THE N.Y.-N.J. CHAPTER OF AATSEEL, OCTOBER 29, 1966, PRINCETON, N.J. (GJ)
