FLES U.S.A. Success Stories. A Report by the FLES Committee of the American Association of Teachers of French.
Lipton, Gladys C., Ed.; Bourque, Edward H., Ed.
The first section of this report presents six articles describing FLES techniques. Harriet Barnett discusses the use in FLES of individualized teaching techniques that are in popular use in other subject areas. Yvonne Le Manchec encourages early second language instruction through the use of educational situations in which the child will be interested enough to participate enthusiastically. John F. Kunkle considers foreign language festivals associated with FLES activities. William R. Herold describes FLES in the bilingual program of Lafayette Parish, Louisiana. Gladys Lipton details the custom-tailored FLES program of New York City, designed to meet the specific needs of the school and district. The final article in this section is a compilation of successful activities for FLES programs selected by Evelyn Brega and Priscilla Tarbox from the contributions of teachers. The second section of the report includes four articles suggesting methods of achieving FLES success: (1) John Kunkle combines psycholinguistic theory and language teaching to develop the concept of home school language switch; (2) Ruth L. Bennett offers suggestions as to the model FLES instructor; (3) Virginia Gramer provides guidelines for measuring FLES success; and (4) Vera de Galante presents a figurative recipe for FLES. A list of the publications of the National FLES Committee is also provided. (LG)
