Teaching Methods and Teaching Materials in German: A Survey of the UMT Project with Report Abstracts. Pedagogisk-Dokumentation, No. 32, 1974.
The UNT project (Instructional Methods in German), begun in 1965 and ended in 1974, had as its principal aims (1) to investigate scientifically certain prerequisites for and methodological approaches to teaching German to Swedish comprehensive school pupils and (2) in the light of this investigation and with the aid of successive trails and revisions, to produce a set of curriculum materials for beginners' courses in German. This report gives a description of the project background, aims, and design, as well as references for and abstracts of various parts of the research and development work. The report is divided into the following headings: pedagogical analysis of prerequisites (goal, pupil and subject matter analyses); pedagogical process analysis, together with experiments in teaching methods; pedagogical product analysis with trials of various kinds; and production of teaching materials according to results of the three analyses. The results of the basic research were transposed into guidelines for the compilation and construction of teaching materials. These materials were tested and then revised according to pupil achievement and comments made by pupils and teachers. (Author/AM)
