Foreign Languages and Foreign Language Learning in Virginia Schools.
Warriner, Helen P.; And Others
Foreign language instruction guidelines designed to improve and extend current programs at all levels are offered to teachers, principals, guidance counselors, general supervisors, foreign language coordinators, and superintendents. Major emphasis on teaching a language is developed, particularly through remarks on the spoken and the written word. Testing and evaluation, learning aids and materials, the language learner, sequential programs, and notes to the administrator and the counselor are individually treated. Observations on the philosophy, objectives, and outcomes of foreign language instruction, as well as remarks on the nature of languages, are included. The appendix contains: (1) a letter to parents, (2) discussion of teacher qualifications, (3) areas and content of competence (for Latin teachers), (4) evaluative criteria for foreign language programs, and (5) a list of foreign language associations. A bibliography is accompanied by additional suggested readings. (RL)
