Objectives, Tests, and Motivation.
Pond, Karl S.
National Association of Language Laboratory Directors Newsletter, v2 n1 p11-15 Dec 1967
Claiming that the actual learning of basic language skills takes place in the language laboratory, the author states four requisites for effective use of the laboratory: (1) a clear statement of specific objectives, (2) instructions for the student, (3) realistic objectives, and (4) student rewards. Testing, learning theory, applied linguistics, discrimination training, pattern drills, and analogy are examined with the prime consideration of student motivation in mind. The close coordination of the classroom and the language laboratory is seen as being vital to the justification of laboratory use. (RL)
