This project of the Indiana Language Program (ILP) directs its efforts to teacher education and instructional methodology in foreign languages. Five stages involved in the ILP foreign language work focus on: (1) identification of practices in foreign language methods in colleges and universities, (2) establishment of dialogue among methods teachers, (3) enlistment of support from administrators and cooperating teachers, (4) establishment of priorities from the "Guidelines for Teacher Education Programs in Modern Language," and (5) seminars on content, materials, and teaching techniques for the methods course in foreign language teaching. This booklet recapitulates progress in these areas through: (1) the Conference on Methods of Teaching Foreign Languages, (2) the Invitational Conference on Foreign Language Teacher Education and Certification, (3) the "Guidelines for Teacher Education Programs in Modern Foreign Languages," (4) Foreign Language Institutes for Cooperating Teachers, (5) the Second Conference on Foreign Language Teacher Preparation, (6) the First Methods Seminar and (7) "Show and Tell," an address by Alfred N. Smith. The material covers events dating from 1965 through 1967. (RL)
