Programmed Instruction in Teacher Retraining (NDEA Institutes).
Mueller, Theodore H.; Niedzielski, Henri
The Modern Language Journal, v50 n2 p92-7 Feb 1966
NDEA summer institutes at the Universities of Florida and Massachusetts, and at Arcachon, France during 1963 made use of parts of the Audio-Lingual Language Program (ALLP) French Program. Near native pronunciation and intonation habits and a command of the basic speech structures were the goals. Each institute used the Program differently and achieved different results, though in general, students of lower proficiency profited most. Reshaping of pronunciation habits proved very time consuming, but because of the use of programed instruction, larger numbers of pupils could be handled without increase in staff. The program was well-received by participants. Though goals were not reached, improvement in pronunciation seemed greater for most participants than in previous non-programed retraining attempts.
