Curriculum Problems and the Teaching of Old French to Undergraduates.
Cormier, Raymond J.; Niedzielski, Henri
This two-section paper treating Old French on the undergraduate level and suggesting changes in the French curriculum criticizes the traditional, chronological approach to program articulation. Cormier focuses on three ways to restructure the current program. He proposes to: (1) teach genre courses rather than chronologically oriented courses, (2) promote the "divided French major" concept while encouraging early specialization, and (3) develop a "concept" approach to literary studies. Niedzielski describes four possible courses in Old French from the viewpoint of objectives, organization, and texts. They are: (1) a 1-semester course in language, (2) a 1-semester course in language and literature, (3) a 2-semester course in language, and (4) a 2-semester course in language and literature. (RL)
