Foreign Languages in Career Training.
Bigelow, Barbara; Morrison, Norman
The foreign language/career education program at Crossland Senior High School in Camp Springs, Maryland, is described. Crossland High maintains two distinct divisions, the academic and the vocational. The new language program offers vocational students the opportunity to learn to speak and understand those foreign words and phrases most needed in their specific work areas. The vocational students are never required to memorize grammar rules or the spelling of foreign lexical items. Advanced foreign language students from levels three to five are the program instructors. Classes last thirty minutes each and are held weekly in the vocational classrooms. Instructional teams are set up with one teacher and several helpers per session. Each language student has at least one chance to teach a class. At present the program is in operation two days every week, involving upper level Spanish and German students and vocational students in a variety of areas. Samples of vocabulary lists for the courses and a lesson plan form used by the instructors are appended to the paper. (PMP)
