Structural Pattern Drills: A Classification.
Paulston, Christina Bratt
The author attempts a reclassification of structural pattern drills, taking into account the theories of Skinner as well as Chomsky on language learning. Her intent is to propose a "systematic progression in the classroom from mechanical learning to the internalizing of competence." Drills could be used more effeciently in foreign language teaching if they were analyzed in terms of (1) expected terminal behavior, (2) response control, (3) the type of learning process involved, and (4) utterance response. Drills are classified (as mechanical, meaningful, and communicative) and discussed, using illustrations in English and Thai. (AMM)
