Lengths of Sequences in Modern Foreign Languages in U.S. High Schools.
Willbern, Glen D.; Rutimann, Hans
This survey of 1,814 public and nonpublic senior high schools presents statistical data in 22 tables on: (1) the lengths of sequences that the schools offer in French, German, Spanish, Russian, and Italian; (2) the extent to which students avail themselves of the sequences offered; and (3) the extent to which senior high schools give recognition to language study done at a lower level (in "feeder schools"). Results report school offerings on the basis of instructional levels as a measure of course content. Discussion of findings includes a comparison of practices between public and nonpublic schools.
