Articulation and the State Foreign Language Association.
Woloshin, David J.
This paper discusses current problems in the teaching of foreign languages, suggests reasons for its present decline, and proposes a program to be developed at the local level which could serve as a model for a state-wide curriculum. After discussing enrollment trends and causes for the lack of articulation in foreign language instruction at all levels, the author suggests how a fully integrated program could be implemented through the state foreign language association. Specifically discussed areas which bear directly on articulation include: (1) objectives of the foreign language program, (2) methodology, (3) teaching, (4) coordination of long-range materials, and (5) administration--student and teacher placement. Commentary on the development of a state-wide curriculum based on behavioral objectives concludes the article. (RL)
