The Supervisor's Role in Foreign-Language Teacher Training.
McKim, Lester; And Others
The core of this report is three papers which focus on the current status and function of the foreign language supervisor. Klaus Mueller's paper, "Responsibilities of the Foreign Language Teacher Trainer", advocates the design and development of achievement tests that would validate teacher competency. Jermaine Arendt's, "The Local Supervisor's Role in Foreign Language Teacher Education", reexamines the role of the supervisor, particularly in the light of government withdrawal of support from foreign language programs. Kenneth Lester's, "Responsibilities of the State Foreign Language Supervisor", proposes joint sovereignty for teacher education, shared by colleges, state departments of education, and public school systems. Final recommendations concerning this subject, prepared by discussion groups at the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) 1970, Los Angeles, preconference workshop, are included.
