French as a Second Language Program 1979-80. Bulletin 1536.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge.
To afford elementary school children in Louisiana the opportunity of attaining proficiency in French, the state legislature established in 1975 a state-wide French as a Second Language (FSL) Program. Learning goals were established for each grade, based on the use of specified instructional materials. The administrative structure of the program was detailed at all levels. Additional projects of the program in 1979-80 included a transition plan for future secondary programs, a university teacher training program, and foreign summer study programs. This report describes the FSL Program, and includes a chart of the program structure. Addenda include the original legislative act, a staffing needs assessment instrument, demographic statistics, a sample contact between a teacher and the Council for the Development of French in Louisiana (CODOFIL), maps indicating extent of program implementation throughout the state, the parish contract for the FSL Program, the program plan for continuity, foreign associate teacher statistics, and a description of the specialist inservice teacher training program.
