LAGGING INTEREST.
MIRSKY, JEROME G.
EXISTING FLES TEACHING MATERIALS ARE REVIEWED GENERALLY AND CRITICIZED, AND SUGGESTIONS ARE MADE FOR THEIR IMPROVEMENT. EMPHASIS SHOULD BE GIVEN TO KEEPING UP THE CLASS'S INTEREST AND PROVIDING TEACHING AIDS THAT ARE REALLY PORTABLE. A WELL-ARTICULATED, SEQUENTIAL TEXT SERIES FROM FLES THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL IS ADVISED. THEIR THEMES SHOULD REFLECT INTERESTS DETERMINED BY THE CHILDREN THEMSELVES, CHAPTERS SHOULD CONSIST OF A NUMBER OF SHORT PRESENTATIONS THAT MAY BE CONNECTED OR LEARNED AND USED SEPARATELY, AND DRILLS AND READING SHOULD BE ON VARIOUS LEVELS SO THAT MORE CAPABLE CHILDREN WOULD PROCEED MORE RAPIDLY WHILE LESS CAPABLE ONES COULD HAVE MORE WORK. CHILDREN SHOULD BE GUIDED TOWARD DEVELOPING THEIR OWN SCRIPTS FROM A GIVEN OUTLINE. CARTOONS MIGHT COME BEFORE READING IS FORMALLY PRESENTED, BUT READING SKILLS SHOULD BE DEVELOPED EARLIER THAN THEY ARE NOW. SUGGESTIONS ARE MADE ON APPROPRIATE ILLUSTRATIONS, AND ON CONSTRUCTION OF AN EFFECTIVE TEACHING MANUAL. FOR MATERIAL, PUBLISHERS ARE ADVISED TO CONSULT FLES TEACHERS RATHER THAN LINGUISTS OR COLLEGE PROFESSORS. THIS SPEECH WAS DELIVERED AT THE MEETING OF THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF TEACHERS OF SPANISH AND PORTUGUESE, CHICAGO, DECEMBER 27, 1967. (AF)
