Teaching Foreign Language Without Failure; A Thinking and Personalized Method That Works.
Wilson, Virginia; Wattenmaker, Beverly
Learning theories proposed by William Glasser in his text, "Schools without Failure," were implemented in an individualized language instruction program in a small high school in northern Ohio. The theory suggests that the success factor is far more significant than the failure factor in developing learning motivation. The belief that individuals need to be allowed to learn at individualized rates of speed is also implemented in the experimental program. The paper describes how the former audiolingual program evolved into an individualized program based on curriculum materials distributed by the Center for Curriculum Development. Parental concern, student reaction, and program results are discussed. (RL)
