THE TEACHER OF MODERN FOREIGN LANGUAGES.
ANDERSSON, THEODORE
BEGINNING WITH AN AUDIOLINGUAL APPROACH, THE FOUR BASIC SKILLS OF HEARING, SPEAKING, READING, AND WRITING MAY BE DEVELOPED IN LANGUAGE STUDENTS OVER A 6-YEAR SEQUENCE OF STUDY FROM GRADES 7 THROUGH 12. THE DEMAND FOR COMPETENT TEACHERS WHO CAN SUCCESSFULLY IMPLEMENT THIS COURSE OF STUDY HIGHLIGHTS THE NEED FOR IMPROVED TEACHER PREPARATION PROGRAMS. FOR TEACHERS LACKING THE BACKGROUND IN NEW TECHNIQUES, MORE REMEDIAL INSTITUTES SUCH AS THOSE BEGUN BY THE NATIONAL DEFENSE EDUCATION ACT OF 1958 ARE NEEDED TO DEMONSTRATE MODERN PRACTICES TO TEACHERS. FOR PROSPECTIVE LANGUAGE TEACHERS, THERE SHOULD BE A REQUIREMENT BETWEEN THEIR COLLEGE FRESHMAN YEAR AND THE FIRST YEAR OF GRADUATE SCHOOL TO QUALIFY AS AT LEAST "GOOD" IN ALL SEVEN CATEGORIES OF THE MODERN LANGUAGE ASSOCIATION TEACHER-QUALIFICATION TESTS. LINGUISTIC, ANTHROPOLOGICAL, SOCIOLOGICAL, AND PSYCHOLOGICAL SPECIALISTS SHOULD COLLABORATE FOR A COMPLETE IMPROVEMENT OF TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAMS THAT WILL PRODUCE COMPETENT TEACHERS ABLE TO MEET THE PRESENT-DAY DEMANDS. THIS DOCUMENT IS A REPRINT FROM "THE EDUCATION OF THE SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHER," PUBLISHED BY WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY PRESS, MIDDLETOWN, CONNECTICUT. (SS)
