The four areas of emphasis are: (1) motivation and rationale, (2) teacher training, (3) course content, articulation, and materials, and (4) organization and structure of the profession. The extensive appendixes, comprising the major portion of the report, consist of commissioned position papers on these topics. The papers incorporate ideas, comments, and criticisms solicited from teachers of German, as well as information from current relevant research being done in universities. (CW)
