Teacher's Manual Level Two [French and German]; An Assessment of Three Foreign Language Teaching Strategies. Cooperative Research Project.
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Public Instruction, Harrisburg.; West Chester State Coll., PA.
Teaching practices appropriate to 15 different treatments of secondary school intermediate French instruction and to 13 different treatments of secondary school intermediate 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 three French and one German treatments, using different texts. The section on the functional skills method (strategy 2) explains general concerns involving the use of all three types of laboratories with suggestions for their effective use, methodology notes, and six different treatments for both French and German (two different texts and three labs for each language). The functional skills plus grammar method (strategy 3) section has the same organization as that for strategy 2. For related documents see ED 021 512, FL 001 266, FL 001 404, and FL 001 405. (AF)
