Conservation and Innovation.
Rivers, Wilga M.
A distinction between "conservation" and "innovation" in language instruction emphasizes the notion of necessary interplay between the two phenomena in the area of curriculum development. Remarks addressed to junior college personnel reject direct correspondences between "conservation" and "conservatism," and "innovation" and "radicalism." Four proposals for the development of innovative programs to improve student motivation are offered. They include: (1) continuing and terminal courses, (2) the "Hors d'Oeuvre Approach" (a variation of the introductory course), (3) diversification of content, and (4) variation in pacing learning rates.
