THE PLACE OF LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE IN THE ARTICULATION OF COLLEGE AND HIGH SCHOOL LANGUAGE PROGRAMS.
CHURCHILL, FREDERICK J.
FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHERS FROM THE EARLIEST LEVELS THROUGH GRADUATE SCHOOL NEED TO JOIN FORCES TO DETERMINE OBJECTIVES AND DEVELOP CONTINUITY OF STUDY. TOO OFTEN COLLEGE FRESHMEN PLEAD INADEQUATE PREPARATION AND ARE PERMITTED TO DUPLICATE WORK ALREADY SATISFACTORILY PERFORMED IN HIGH SCHOOL. IF PRE-COLLEGE TRAINING PLACED GREATER EMPHASIS ON THE FOUR LANGUAGE SKILLS, THE ACQUIRED PROFICIENCY WOULD ENABLE STUDENTS TO MAKE THE TRANSITION FROM LANGUAGE STUDY TO LITERATURE. COLLEGE FACULTY, ON THE OTHER HAND, NEED GREATER APPRECIATION OF THE LEARNING PROCESS INVOLVED, AND SHOULD NOT EXPECT MATURE LITERARY JUDGMENT FROM YOUNG STUDENTS STILL BUILDING THEIR FOREIGN LANGUAGE COMPETENCY. INSTEAD OF ALTERNATING READING MATERIAL AND A REVIEW GRAMMAR, THE TEACHER OF THE TRANSITIONAL PERIOD, WHETHER IN HIGH SCHOOL OR COLLEGE, COULD PROVIDE CONTINUITY BY MEANS OF SKILLFULLY CONSTRUCTED EXERCISES TO DEDUCE GRAMMATICAL REVIEW FROM THE READING MATERIAL. THIS SPEECH WAS GIVEN AT A FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHER CONFERENCE AT ADELPHI UNIVERSITY, MARCH 9, 1967. (GJ)
