Modern Foreign Languages in High School: The Language Laboratory.
Hutchinson, Joseph C.
The high school language laboratory is approached from the standpoint of (1) planning for the laboratory facilities, (2) the function of equipment in relation to student learning activities, and (3) operation of the laboratory facilities. Considered in the section on planning are laboratory rationale, place in the school program, methods and materials, and equipment evaluation and selection. The function of the laboratory is diagramed, with specific attention given to headphones, microphones, recorders, and other equipment. Operational factors (scheduling, operational and administrative duties, teaching techniques, testing, and laboratory use) are discussed. There are explanations of technical language laboratory terminology and glossaries of related expressions and terms in French, German, Italian, Russian, and Spanish. A list of useful references is also included. (AF)
