A GUIDE FOR INSTRUCTION IN MODERN FOREIGN LANGUAGES, GRADES 4-12.
Minnesota State Dept. of Education, St. Paul.
THE VARIETY OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE LEARNING SEQUENCES IN MINNESOTA HAS CAUSED A SERIOUS ARTICULATION PROBLEM--BETWEEN LEVELS WITHIN A GIVEN SEQUENCE, BETWEEN SEQUENCES, AND IN INTEGRATING DIFFERENT SEQUENCES AT THE MORE ADVANCED LEVELS. TO HELP ALLEVIATE THESE PROBLEMS THREE COURSES OF STUDY ARE SUGGESTED AND DESCRIBED IN THIS GUIDE. SEQUENCE A (GRADES 4-12) ALLOWS A STUDENT TO OBTAIN A REAL LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY BASED ON AN INTUITIVE UNDERSTANDING OF THE CULTURE AS WELL AS THE OPPORTUNITY TO BEGIN A SECOND MODERN LANGUAGE LATER IN HIS SECONDARY SCHOOL CAREER. SEQUENCE B (GRADES 7-12) PROVIDES A STUDENT WITH A GOOD FOUNDATION IN A MODERN LANGUAGE. SEQUENCE C (GRADES 9 OR 10-12) PROVIDES THE STUDENT WITH THE NECESSARY FUNDAMENTAL SKILLS. A CHART DETAILS TIME REQUIREMENTS FOR EACH SEQUENCE LEVEL AND A LIST OF DESIRED GOALS. TEACHING TECHNIQUES, MATERIALS, ACTIVITIES, AND COURSE CONTENT FOR EACH LEVEL ARE DISCUSSED IN DETAIL. INCLUDED ALSO ARE SECTIONS ON DRILLS, THE LANGUAGE LABORATORY, PROGRAMED LEARNING, EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION, AND TEACHER EDUCATION, AND A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF MATERIALS. (AF)
