OF SPANISH DEPARTMENTS AND TEACHING SPANISH.
RYAN, JAMES
AN INCREASING NUMBER OF SPANISH PROFESSORS, ASKED TO ESTABLISH A FOREIGN LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT IN A NEW COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY, ARE SERIOUSLY APPRAISING THE AIMS AND FUNCTIONS OF THEIR DEPARTMENTS. IT IS IMPORTANT TO MAINTAIN A BALANCE BUT NOT A SEPARATION BETWEEN TEACHING AND RESEARCH, BETWEEN NATIVE SPANISH SPEAKERS AND NATIVE AMERICANS WITH NEAR-NATIVE FLUENCY IN THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE, BETWEEN LATIN AMERICAN AND SPANISH CULTURE AND LITERATURE, AND BETWEEN LANGUAGE, LINGUISTICS, AND TEACHING METHODS ON THE ONE HAND AND LITERATURE AND SCHOLARLY METHODS ON THE OTHER. EFFECTIVE TEACHER EDUCATION MUST OFFER COURSES IN METHODS, TESTING, TECHNIQUES, AND APPLIED LINGUISTICS WITH TRAINING CONTINUED IN SERVICE UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF MASTER TEACHERS. TO INTEGRATE FURTHER ALL PHASES OF LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE TEACHING, THE FACULTY SHOULD ENCOURAGE DISCUSSION OR TRAINING GROUPS, WHICH WOULD BENEFIT ALL DEPARTMENT MEMBERS FROM THE APPRENTICE TEACHERS TO THE SENIOR MEMBERS DEVOTING CONSIDERABLE TIME TO RESEARCH, AND WHICH MIGHT EVEN BE OPEN TO SPANISH MAJORS WHO PLAN TO TEACH. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN "HISPANIA," VOLUME 49, NUMBER 4, DECEMBER 1966, PAGES 808-813. (GJ)
