Foreign Language in Elementary Schools.
Chestnut, David T.
The success of foreign language in elementary schools (FLES) depends upon the cooperation and effort of administrators, classroom teachers, secondary school language teachers, the community at large, and parents. Having stated this, the author points out five fundamentals for FLES concerning: (1) major objectives, (2) sequential planning, (3) program articulation, (4) basic lesson presentation, and (5) program coordination. Implications of these five principles are spelled out. Final discussion of Title V (known as the Bilingual Education Act) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act emphasizes improvement of classroom activities in Pennsylvania. (RL)
