CULTURE IN LANGUAGE LEARNING. REPORTS OF THE WORKING COMMITTEES OF THE NORTHEAST CONFERENCE ON THE TEACHING OF FOREIGN LANGUAGES, 1960.
BISHOP, G. REGINALD, JR.
IN AN ATTEMPT TO DISCOVER WHAT OTHER DISCIPLINES MIGHT HAVE TO TELL THE LANGUAGE TEACHING PROFESSION, THE NORTHEAST CONFERENCE ON THE TEACHING OF FOREIGN LANGUAGES EXTENDED ITS FOCUS BEYOND ITS USUAL INVOLVEMENT WITH IMMEDIATE PEDAGOGICAL PROBLEMS BY ADOPTING AS THE SUBJECT OF ITS 1960 PROGRAM "CULTURE IN LANGUAGE LEARNING." THE FIVE COMMITTEE REPORTS THAT COMPRISE THIS PUBLICATION REFLECT A PROJECTED RAPPROCHEMENT WITH ANTHROPOLOGISTS IN A DISCUSSION OF LANGUAGE AS A CULTURAL PHENOMENON. UNDER THE CHAIRMANSHIP OF ERNESTINE FRIEDL, THE FIRST COMMITTEE, COMPOSED OF ANTHROPOLOGISTS, DEVELOPED A STATEMENT ABOUT ASPECTS OF THE ANTHROPOLOGICAL CONCEPT OF CULTURE THAT MIGHT BE OF VALUE TO LANGUAGE TEACHERS. THE SECOND COMMITTEE, HEADED BY WILLIAM E. WELMERS, REPORTED ON THE PEDAGOGICAL IMPLICATIONS OF CULTURE FOR THE LANGUAGE TEACHER AND SECOND LANGUAGE LEARNER. IRA O. WADE, DORIS E. KIBBE, AND LEON TWAROG CHAIRED THE THREE REMAINING GROUPS THAT COMPLETED REPORTS ON THE SPECIFIC PEDAGOGICAL PROBLEMS INVOLVED IN PENETRATING AND TEACHING THE CULTURES OF WESTERN EUROPE, CLASSICAL ANTIQUITY, AND SLAVIC LANDS RESPECTIVELY. EACH REPORT INCLUDES A SELECTED BIBLIOGRAPHY. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE AS NUMBER NEC 60 FOR $2.50 FROM THE MLA/ACTFL MATERIALS CENTER, 62 FIFTH AVENUE, NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. 10011. (AB)
