Teacher's Manual [German, Level I]; An Assessment of Three Foreign Language Teaching Strategies. Cooperative Research Project.

Teaching practices appropriate to 10 different treatments of secondary school beginning German instruction are outlined and discussed. Treatments vary by (1) strategy (traditional; audiolingual or functional skills; and modified audiolingual or functional skills enriched with grammar), (2) type of laboratory (audio passive or tape recorder, audio active, and audio active record), and (3) text. A section on the traditional method (strategy 1) describes general do's and don'ts and two treatments using different texts. The section on the functional skills method (strategy 2) explains general concerns involving the use of both audio active and audio active record laboratories and suggests for their effective use four different treatments (two different texts and two labs) in the beginning and intermediate lesson plans. The functional skills plus grammar method (strategy 3) section is organized like that for strategy 2 with the addition of two different grammar outlines, one for each text.
