Minimizing Dropouts in the Foreign Language Program.
Parent, P. Paul
Teachers are asked to reappraise psychological approaches to foreign language instruction and to recognize the vital change in the discipline from an academic elective for an intellectual elite to its widespread acceptance as a communication tool. Suggestions are offered for proper sequencing, stressing the heterogeneous nature of the classroom, and for ways to elicit responses in pattern drills. A few remarks on language teaching history are offered. (DS)
