ONE SEMESTER OF OLD FRENCH, A FOOT IN THE DOOR.
KIMMEL, ARTHUR S.
FOR THOSE COLLEGES FACED WITH A CROWDED CURRICULUM, INFLEXIBLE MAJOR REQUIREMENTS, AND POORLY-PREPARED FRENCH STUDENTS, A ONE SEMESTER COURSE IN OLD FRENCH IS SUGGESTED. SUCH A COURSE WOULD FIT INTO A FLEXIBLE AND CONTINUOUS SEQUENCE OF CENTURY OR GENRE COURSES (WITH THE HASTY SURVEY COURSE ELIMINATED). COURSE OBJECTIVES SHOULD INCLUDE (1) COVERAGE OF FOUR CENTURIES IN A MANNER INTELLIGIBLE TO A LITERARY BEGINNER, (2) PREPARATION FOR GRADUATE COURSES IN OLD FRENCH AND PHILOLOGY, AND (3) JUSTIFICATION OF OLD FRENCH IN THE CURRICULUM ON CULTURAL AND HISTORICAL, AS WELL AS LITERARY, TERMS. A TEXT AND TWO INEXPENSIVE OLD FRENCH GRAMMARS ARE RECOMMENDED. THIS PAPER WAS DELIVERED AT THE CONFERENCE ON THE TEACHING OF OLD FRENCH AT THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE MODERN LANGUAGE ASSOCIATION (NEW YORK, DECEMBER 28, 1966). (AF)
