Foreign Language Instruction in New York State for the 1970's: Techniques, Materials, Equipment.
Glaude, Paul M.
This projection of trends in language instruction in the State of New York features a reoriented audiolingual teaching methodology stressing the significance of programed self-instruction with modified educational objectives and goals. Prominent in the discussion are concepts relating to: (1) the teacher as manager of instruction, (2) improvement in the techniques used in instruction, (3) "transfer" versus "drill" activities, (4) flexible curriculums and modular scheduling, (5) the student-centered curriculum, and (6) the development of self-instructional programs. The views represented in this paper are largely derived from papers given at the third Advisory Panel meeting sponsored by the Bureau of Foreign Languages Education of the State Education Department of New York.
