Foreign Language Teaching: The Utilization of Community Resources.
Fleming, Ann Kaenig
A number of community resources available for utilization by the foreign language teacher in the Denver area are listed here, and specific suggestions are made for teachers interested in exploring the resources of their own communities. It is recommended that schools and universities, bilingual-bicultural programs and/or agencies, and cultural centers be contacted as possible sources of information and activity for the foreign language student. Teachers should be aware of the career opportunities available to language students. Often it is possible for students to work with non-English-speaking children and older people in some kind of voluntary educational program. Such work provides extra-curricular language experience, as well as a much-needed community service. Community publications written in the appropriate foreign language are also a valuable tool that can be used both inside and outside the classroom. Organizations and commercial firms mainly concerned with entertainment should also be contacted by the language teacher. Many television and radio stations, for example, schedule foreign language programs; and theaters in many cities offer foreign language productions. (PMP)
