Cognitive Theory in Teaching Foreign Languages.
Briscoe, Laurel A.
Educational accountability, as linked to changing socioeconomic attitudes and conditions, is noted to have contributed to the decline of the audiolingual method of language instruction. Following a discussion of the pedagogical implications and inadequacies of audiolingual theory, the author analyzes the nature of this teaching methodology, first proposed by John Carroll as the cognitive code-learning theory. The educational theory developed by David P. Ausubel in this domain is suggested to provide the natural psychological foundations for the cognitive code-learning focus for foreign languages. The article analyzes, in general terms, Ausubel's theories and their applicability to language instruction. (RL)
