A Survey of Foreign Language Staff toward the Language Requirement.
Hagiwara, Michio P.
The Foreign Language Courier, n42 p22-57 June 1969
In the 1968-69 controversy over the foreign language requirement for the B.A. degree in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts of the University of Michigan, the College faculty chose a compromise solution to the policy in practice since 1954 of a required 4-semester study of a foreign language with placement testing. Policy alternatives and modifications resulting from at least eight different proposals included--(1) automatic exemption from the 2-year requirement for entering students who had completed four years of language in high school, (2) an alternate "reading track" for students not wanting other language skills, (3) a student option to a pass-fail grading system, and (4) liberalization of administrative policy.
