Evaluating the Effectiveness and Efficiency of Instructional Strategies in Teaching German.
Prokop, Manfred
In the spirit of the new, sober eclecticism in foreign language teaching methodology, the effectiveness/efficiency dimensions become the criteria for decision-making in educational planning. The points are raised that: (1) there are no universally applicable methods; (2) teachers should not accept educational dogma without empirical evidence; (3) the classroom teacher is in a very good position to conduct research which is meaningful and, in all likelihood, more valid for his situation than that carried out in broad comparisons or artificial lab situations; and (4) the effectiveness-efficiency dimension provides a useful conceptual framework for such action research. The main argument is then applied to representative analyses of the effectiveness/efficiency of some major instructional strategies. (Author)
