The Status of Research in Foreign Languages.
Warriner, Helen P.
The problematic nature of research in the teaching of foreign languages discloses fundamental areas of concern, particularly related to secondary school teacher attitudes. Comments of leading researchers concerning the nature of research, purpose and design, responsibility for generation of research, and the use of research are cited extensively. Recent developments focus upon the need for teacher-training programs to shape "developers" of the art of teaching rather than "practitioners" of skills. A selected bibliography is included. (RL)
