National Core French Study: A Synthesis = Etude nationale sur les programmes de francais de base. Rapport synthese.
LeBlanc, Raymond
The National Core French Study had the objectives of defining and developing four syllabuses and assessing their applicability in Core French classes in Canadian elementary and secondary schools. The four syllabuses, proposed as part of a multidimensional curriculum, include language, communicative/experiential, culture, and general language education. The study draws on existing policies, programs, and activities in Core French in different parts of Canada and identifies ways to strengthen Core French in order to attain higher proficiency levels. This synthesis of work by the study's task forces contains introductory remarks and a list of conclusions; an overview of the multidimensional curriculum; an explanation and discussion of each of the four syllabuses; and chapters on integrative pedagogy, evaluation, and teacher training. The notes in each chapter are keyed to the study's 91 specific conclusions. It is generally concluded that the proposed multidimensional curriculum accurately reflects what is needed in second language teaching. (MSE)
