THE TEACHING OF FRENCH IN THE UNITED STATES--A HISTORY.
WATTS, GEORGE B.
A REPORT ON THE HISTORY OF FRENCH TEACHING IN THE UNITED STATES MAKES US AWARE OF THE GROWTH OF INTEREST IN MODERN LANGUAGE STUDY WHILE FOCUSING SPECIFICALLY ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF FRENCH INSTRUCTION. THE CONSEQUENT STUDY OF FRENCH IS TRACED IN THE OPENING CHAPTER WITH A BRIEF PICTURE OF THE TIES BETWEEN FRANCE AND THE AMERICAN COLONIES. "SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES" FOLLOWS, WITH A BREAKDOWN OF THE HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT OF FRENCH INSTRUCTION AND THE CHANGING EDUCATIONAL POLICY TOWARD LANGUAGE STUDY BY SCHOOL TYPES--PUBLIC SECONDARY, ELEMENTARY, AND RELIGIOUS SCHOOLS, COLLEGES, UNIVERSITIES, COMMERCIAL, SUMMER LANGUAGE INSTITUTES, AND JUNIOR YEAR ABROAD PROGRAMS. "TEXTS, TECHNIQUES, AND TEACHING EQUIPMENT" AND "LANGUAGE ASSOCIATIONS" ARE THE TWO CONCLUDING CHAPTERS WHICH DESCRIBE THE TYPES OF BOOKS AND MATERIALS USED FROM COLONIAL DAYS TO THE PRESENT AND A BRIEF BACKGROUND OF SUCH RELATED ORGANIZATIONS AS THE MODERN LANGUAGE ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA AND THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF TEACHERS OF FRENCH. THIS DOCUMENT WAS PUBLISHED IN "THE FRENCH REVIEW," VOLUME 37, NUMBER L, PART 2. (SS)
