TWO YEARS WITH THE SAINT-CLOUD MATERIALS.
KUNKLE, JOHN F.
THE EXPERIENCE OF FLES TEACHERS WITH "BONJOUR LINE" (FOURTH AND FIFTH GRADE) AND "VOIX ET IMAGES DE FRANCE" (SIXTH GRADE) IN THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL FRENCH CURRICULUM OVER A 2-YEAR PERIOD IN SHAKER HEIGHTS, OHIO, HAS RESULTED IN A NUMBER OF CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS. DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE WAYS IN WHICH AMERICAN AND FRENCH ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS ARE TAUGHT NECESSITATE ADJUSTMENTS IN THE PACE AND VARIETY OF PRESENTATION TECHNIQUES FOR AMERICAN STUDENTS. SINCE THE MATERIAL CANNOT BE TAUGHT AS RAPIDLY AS THE SAINT-CLOUD PEOPLE SUGGEST, CARE MUST BE TAKEN THAT STUDENTS NOT BE BORED BY STORIES BELOW THEIR LEVEL. MINIMUM TEACHER TRAINING TO USE THE METHOD IS ONE WEEK, AND CHILDREN ALSO MUST BE ORIENTED TO THE PURPOSE OF THE METHOD. AFTER THE FIRST YEAR, A CURRICULUM GUIDE WAS PREPARED WHICH INCLUDED SUGGESTIONS FROM SAINT-CLOUD, FROM THE ORIGINAL TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM, AND FROM STAFF EXPERIENCE. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN "THE MODERN LANGUAGE JOURNAL," VOLUME 50, NUMBER 3, MARCH 1966, PAGES 137-139. (AF)
