Using Programmed Foreign Language Courses in Secondary School With Specially Trained Teachers. Final Report.
Clark, William H.
Designed to develop information on the use of programed self-instruction in foreign languages in the secondary schools, this study indicates that high school students given the equivalent of a first-year Spanish or German course by means of programed self-instruction under the supervision of a specially trained teacher will be able to cope satisfactorily with the second-year classroom course. Following a brief description of the participants and the two-phased experiment, a commentary on the results and a summary of recommendations are presented. Detailed appendixes contain: (1) student course information, (2) seven relevant questionnaires for students, workshop participants, and administrators, and (3) teacher and participant program appraisal forms.
