Self-Analysis and Introspection: Final Report of the Workshop on Individualizing Foreign Language Instruction.
Bockman, John F., Ed.; Gougher, Ronald L., Ed.
Sociological implications suggested by the growing national trend of individualized foreign language instruction in American schools are explored in the introductory remarks of this final report of a workshop held at West Chester State College, Pennsylvania. The rationale, structure, and daily schedule of the workshop, and a paper by Valerie M. Bockman, "Focus on Leadership," are included in the report. Pre- and post-test data provide extensive information concerning participants' attitudes toward individualized instruction and their knowledge of teaching methods. Participants describe their own reasons for attending the workshop in terms of their school situation. These case studies shed light on the problems facing teachers who wish to implement similar programs in their schools. A chapter outlining how teachers might begin the task is provided. The report concludes with a list of participants and staff members. (RL)
