Strasheim, Lorraine A.; Hallman, Clemens L.
Foreign language information for guidance personnel and administrators concerning the role of foreign languages in the comprehensive school in Indiana concerns four major areas: (1) student, (2) foreign language instruction, (3) administration, and (4) foreign languages in Indiana. Questions raised by schools and parents regarding the individual student and the study of foreign languages deal with course selection, success prediction, and college requirements. A consensus of the profession as to what constitutes the best and most productive instructional practices in foreign language education describes optimum objectives of behaviors and performance. The organization, supervision, and direction of foreign language programs are viewed in the framework of the total curriculum. The Indiana Language Program and the Honors Program in Foreign Languages for High School Students are detailed. Guidelines for teacher education programs and advice to the language learner constitute the appendixes. (RL)
