Etude nationale sur les programmes de francais de base: Le syllabus formation langagiere generale (National Core French Study: General Language Education).
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 general language education syllabus discussed here is intended to improve the psychological conditions for second language learning by adding to student sensitivity and objectivity about language and culture, affording greater exposure to and participation in Canada's bilingual and multicultural society, and facilitating active second language learning. Chapters address the following topics: rationale for the syllabus; literature review; general and specific syllabus objectives; considerations for syllabus content; scope and sequence; selection of teaching approaches; student evaluation issues; integration with other syllabuses; and related needs for teacher training. A 202-item bibliography is appended. (MSE)
