Alternative Approaches to Staffing the Elementary Foreign Language Program: Cost and Time vs. Achievement and Satisfaction.
Otto, Frank
The Modern Language Journal, v52 n5 p293-301 May 1968
Based on a Ph.D. dissertation on an experiment involving the teaching of French with the widely used "Parlons francais" course to three groups of Grade 4 students, this article compares and evaluates the methods of staffing and implementing these FLES programs described in the report. The institutional approach methods assessed are--(1) Classroom Teacher and Television, (2) Specialist and Television, and (3) Classroom Teacher and 8 mm. Color-Sound Film. Included are analyses of cost and time factors and remarks about teacher and administrator satisfactions. Considerable attention is given to the staffing implications of this research. (AF)
