New Teachers for New Students: Proceedings of the Seattle Symposium on the Training of Foreign Language Teachers.
Hanzeli, Victor E., Ed.; Love, William D., Ed.
The papers given at the Seattle Symposium on the Training of Foreign Language Teachers, compiled in this publication, contribute to a redefinition of the purpose of language instruction in education and the role of the foreign language classroom. The interests and aspirations of the "new student," a focal point of the 1970 Northeast Conference, are seen as central to the new learner- centered programs with multiple goals and multiple values that respect each student's motivation and talent. Introductory remarks are followed by these articles: (1) "Teacher Training--For What?" by Lorraine Strasheim, (2) "A Learning-Centered Teacher Training Program" by Donald Ryberg, (3) "Getting There from Here: The Dilemma in Music Education" by James Carlsen, (4) "What Do We Really Want from a Foreign Language Teacher?" by Phillip Leamon, (5) "Teacher Student Relations--Coercion of Cooperation?" by Wilga Rivers, (6) "The Inservice Education of Foreign Language Teachers" by Leo Benardo, and (7) "Study Program for Foreign Language Teachers at Rennes" by Norman Stokle. A section entitled "Topics and Talk," an epilogue, and a list of participants are included. (RL)
