Programmed Learning as Used in the Tacoma Public Schools.
Macias, Cenobio C.
The "Spanish for Communication" (SFC) materials for foreign language instruction developed by Dr. William Bull are described in this article. Two major components are at the heart of SFC: a teacher's Daily Lesson Plan (DLP) and student programed homework. Now in the fourth year of field testing in the Tacoma (Washington) Public Schools, the materials programed for mastery of instructional objectives are seen as being instrumental in effecting changes in teacher attitude, methodology, and student performance.
