THE TRAINING OF GERMAN TEACHERS IN THE U.S., A POSITION PAPER (DRAFT).
LOHNES, WALTER F.W.
THE TRAINING OF GERMAN TEACHERS TODAY LEAVES SO MUCH TO BE DESIRED THAT THE MAJORITY OF THEM EMPLOYED AND CERTIFIED TO TEACH GERMAN IN AMERICAN SCHOOLS ARE UNQUALIFIED TO DO SO BY ANY PROFESSIONAL STANDARD. THE ABOVE STATEMENT IS THE PREMISE OF THIS POSITION PAPER WHICH OUTLINES IN DETAIL WHAT IS NECESSARY TO REMEDY THE SITUATION. THE MOST EXTENSIVE PART OF THE PAPER INCLUDES (1) NECESSARY QUALIFICATIONS OF FUTURE GERMAN TEACHERS, AND (2) GUIDELINES FOR WAYS AND MEANS OF ACHIEVING THESE QUALIFICATIONS IN TEACHER TRAINING, INCLUDING THE AREAS OF LANGUAGE COMPETENCY, LINGUISTICS, CULTURE, STUDY ABROAD, METHODS COURSES, AND INTERNSHIPS. A THIRD SECTION DESCRIBES THE ACTIVITIES OF THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF TEACHERS OF GERMAN IN RESEARCH AND IN DEVELOPING NATIONAL STANDARDS, AND THE FINAL SECTION OFFERS PROPOSALS FOR TEACHER CERTIFICATION.
