A Primer of Programmed Instruction in Foreign Language Teaching.
Carroll, John B.
International Review of Applied Linguistics in Language Teaching, v1 n2 p115-41 1963
The first part of this paper is a general introduction which defines programmed instruction, traces the history of the concept, and explains its basic ideas and terminology. Progress and problems in research and in evaluating programmed materials are also briefly considered, and a short selective bibliography is included in this first section. The second part of the paper discusses the application of programmed instruction to foreign language teaching, dealing in particular with the problem of specifying terminal behavior and the possibilities and limitations of effective use of programmed material in foreign language instruction. Some comments on current foreign language programmed materials are offered and some potential pitfalls in the field are identified. A brief consideration of cost and feasibility problems concludes the paper. (AR)
