Programmed Instruction in Foreign Language Teaching. Report of Second Annual Conference.
Butler, Mary, Ed.; Serafino, Robert, Ed.
Dr. Simon Belasco's paper "Programmed Instruction and the Psychology of Second Language Learning" explores basic assumptions held by curriculum designers and teachers concerning the possibility of second language acquisition in an artificial, unicultural, and contrived classroom environment. Concepts relating to scope and sequence, New Key techniques, speaking and listening comprehension relationships, contrived and live teaching materials, and other psychological and linguistic observations are presented in this critical study. Five refinement characteristics to improve the typical, commercially-designed pattern drill focus on: (1) initial drills as part of an integrated drill-type sequence, (2) a single pattern presented in the same drill, (3) efficient arrangement of structural features for presentation, (4) presentation of the entire system, and (5) step, slot, and cue correspondence. Extensive, sample, drill materials and listening excercises are provided. Shorter papers on programed instruction are also contained in the report. (RL)
