What's New in Wisconsin? Innovative Foreign Language Programs.
Grittner, Frank, Ed.
Voice of the Wisconsin Foreign Language Teacher, v7 n1 p33-42 Winter 1967.
This brief examination of innovative foreign language programs in Wisconsin high schools begins with descriptions of the varied use and design of the language laboratory in three schools to increase self pacing, eliminate waste of time, and allow for tapes that supplement rather than repeat textbook material. Also described are (1) a course in World History taught in a foreign language, (2) a correspondence course supplemented with radio lessons in the target language, and (3) summer language institutes which emphasize individualized instruction and study.
