New Dimensions in the Teaching of FLES: The Student's World Is the World.
Allen, Virginia Garibaldi, Comp.; Paquette, F. Andre, Ed.
Five position papers resulting from a conference on the teaching of FLES discuss recent theory about elementary education and are intended to initiate a dialogue among teachers of foreign languages directed toward the exploration of ways and means of managing educational change. The report suggests how a broader rationale and a new curriculum base for FLES might be evolved. Papers include: (1) "Psychological and Educational Considerations in Early Language Learning", (2) "The Emerging Elementary School as a Setting for Foreign Language Instruction", (3) "Trends in Two Elementary School Subject-Matter Areas", (4) "Goals and Trends of Administration, Organization, and Supervision in Elementary Education", and (5) "Managing Change". The appendix contains background notes on the conference, the conference program, and a list of participants. (RL)
