Sections include: (1) introduction: project background and rationale; (2) description of project activities; (3) fifteen case studies: some common assumptions; (4) publications and position papers: a summary of observations and recommendations; (5) a new approach to college language placement; and (6) several appendixes relating to this project. Included among these papers are several selected publications, position papers, and "The Foreign Language Program in Washoe County and the University of Nevada," by C.W.F. Melz. (RL)
