Seeking a Pace to Perfection: The Attempt to Individualize Instruction in Elementary German at Lafayette College, Easton, Pa.
McDonald, Edward R.
An experimental course in college-level, introductory German, based on a modification of Fred S. Keller's work in individualized instruction, is described in this study. The establishment of specific time limits for completion of predetermined subject matter and the provision of tutorial services are essential variations from the classical approach to individualized instruction. Texts used in the course are "Deutsch fur Amerikaner" by Goedsche and Spann and "Moderne Erzahlungen" by Kritsch and Schlimbach. A course schedule for fall and spring semesters is included, and the grading system for German 1 and 2 is discussed. A summary of student responses to an attitudinal questionnaire is included. (RL)
