The Teaching of a Foreign Language in a Modular System of Instruction.
Wishard, Armin
Curricular innovations designed and implemented in the language department at Colorado College which are based on modular scheduling are discussed in this paper. Sequential courses of several varieties are discussed including: principal "full courses;" interdisciplinary courses; "half-courses;" and "adjunct courses." The courses are designed in flexible course modules labelled "blocks" and are offered in units of time ranging from three to 10 weeks' duration. The potential for individualizing instruction through such scheduling, for improving the instructional environment, and for increasing student and teacher contact is discussed. (RL)
