Survey of the Teaching of German in Public and Nonpublic Secondary Schools in the School Year 1965-1966.
National Carl Schurz Association, Inc., Philadelphia, PA.
Tables and graphs illustrate the information gathered in this survey on the teaching of German. Major attention is focused on the organization of classes from Level 1 through 6, including figures on teacher load, scheduling, student enrollment, instructional materials, and laboratory work. Results concerning textbook use and audiovisual aids are supplied. A section on school offerings in German is quite extensive, with special emphasis on foreign language in the elementary school (FLES), extracurricular activities, teacher sources of assistance, and books and publications of particular value to the German teacher. Considerable material on teachers includes information on academic background, courses in methods and in linguistics, participation in institutes and workshops, and whether or not the teacher received all his German training in American schools.
