Crosbie, Keith; And Others
This paper identifies areas of weakness in existing programs of foreign language education for secondary teachers and suggests how improvements may be effected. The National Council of State Supervisors of Foreign Languages, recognizing the need for change in language teacher education programs, discusses four major areas of concern. Remarks are directed to (1) advanced courses, (2) professional education courses, (3) the foreign language methods course, and (4) the student teaching experience. An extensive bibliography lists books and articles on general teacher education and foreign language education. (RL)
