MODERN TEACHING OF SPANISH, FOLLOWED BY THE DISCUSSION OR CONFERENCE AS A LEARNING METHOD.
FELDMAN, DAVID M.; SCHINDLER, BARBARA
THE PILOT PROJECT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO DESCRIBED HERE WAS DESIGNED TO OFFER GROUPS OF SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS AN OPPORTUNITY TO BECOME BETTER ACQUAINTED WITH THE APPLICATION OF NEWER METHODOLOGY AND LINGUISTIC SCIENCE TO TEACHING MODERN FOREIGN LANGUAGES. THE PROJECT WAS CONDUCTED DURING THE 1962-63 ACADEMIC YEAR, WITH THE FIRST AND LAST DAYS OF THE 17 SESSIONS DEVOTED RESPECTIVELY TO ORIENTATION AND FINAL TESTING. THE INTERIM MEETINGS COVERED 12 ASSIGNMENTS FROM A STUDY GUIDE DEVELOPED SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS IN-SERVICE COURSE, COVERING SUCH TOPICS AS APPLIED LINGUISTICS, PRONUNCIATION, SYNTACTIC DRILLS, LANGUAGE LABORATORY USE, READING, WRITING, VOCABULARY, AND TESTING. ALSO INCLUDED ARE LISTS OF TEXTBOOKS TO BE STUDIED COLLATERALLY, REFERENCE MATERIALS, STATEMENTS OF THE COURSE OBJECTIVES, AND COMMENTS AND DISCUSSION QUESTIONS FOR EACH ASSIGNMENT. THE MATERIAL WAS INTENDED TO BE TAUGHT THROUGH GROUP DISCUSSIONS, SO A 60-PAGE SECTION OF THE STUDY GUIDE IS DEVOTED TO THE PROBLEMS OF COMMUNICATION, TOOLS FOR EFFECTIVE DISCUSSION, GROUP DYNAMICS, STYLES OF LEADERSHIP, AND DISCUSSION TECHNIQUES. THE WORK BOOK TERMINATES WITH CHARTS ON POST-MEETING REACTIONS, TASK AND MAINTENANCE FUNCTIONAL BEHAVIOR, THE ROLE OF THE DISCUSSION LEADER, AND A SUGGESTED PLAN OF OPERATION FOR "THE MODERN TEACHING OF SPANISH."
