State-Wide Collaborative Efforts for Teaching Foreign Languages.
Johnstone, Tamara S., Comp.
This report summarizes the results of a survey undertaken by the Joint National Committee for Languages to determine the existence of collaborative efforts in foreign language study and international education that might serve as representative models for other states. Of the 40 states that responded to the survey, 26 reported having academic and cultural alliances, 14 reported using school partnerships, while 12 had developed state advisory boards, commissions, or task forces to promote collaboration in foreign language study and international education. The bulk of the report consists of individual state entries, which list the programs undertaken by each state, provide a short description of the program goals and operation, and cite the name, address, and telephone number of the program contact person. A list of 19 relevant publications and a list of state foreign language supervisors are included. (MDM)
