Elementary Foreign Language Teacher-PTA Liaison Handbook.
Fairfax County Public Schools, VA. Div. of Adult Services.
A handbook for the organization and implementation of an elementary school foreign language program presents guidelines for teachers and PTA liaisons. The program provides supplemental elementary-level instruction for children in Spanish, French, German, Italian, Chinese, and Arabic. Much of the program planning and organization is conducted by parent groups at county elementary schools. The guidelines address procedures and policies, the role of the PTA liaison, the role of the adult center coordinator, class organization and implementation, teacher role, program objectives, instructional materials, and teaching methods. Specific topics include interest surveys, staffing, record keeping, lesson plans, suggested course content, the audiolingual method, and information sources for instructional materials. (RW)
