Foreign Language: PROJECT DESIGN. Educational Needs, Fresno, 1968, Number 14.
DuFort, Mary; Peinado, Bruno, Jr.
PROJECT DESIGN, funded under ESEA Title III, approached the task of establishing learner needs in foreign languages by determining the differences between present student performance and standard or normal development of skills. Information for the study was based on school visits and personal interviews with school administrators and teachers. In addition, district documents and current literature on foreign languages were consulted. Major educational needs regarding foreign languages for the Fresno City Unified School District are seen as including: (1) the reconstruction of a healthy working relationship between teachers and administrative personnel, (2) a continuous, sequential course of study for each language offered, and (3) redefinition of the roles of those persons and/or groups in the district who are concerned with the foreign language program.
