University of Minnesota Foreign Language Curriculum Units: 1976.

The first University of Minnesota Work-In was conducted in 1971 in the belief that specially prepared and appealing materials would motivate students to study foreign languages longer. The preparation of culturally authentic materials was seen as a process of definition of objectives, selection of interesting activities and evaluation of learning provided. This format is followed by all University of Minnesota materials, in order to motivate students to study foreign languages as functional languages. The materials offered in this catalogue are not commercial, letter-perfect products, but were prepared by teachers for their own use and should be helpful to other teachers. Units are listed by language (French, Spanish and German), alphabetically according to the name of the unit. Following the title is an indication of the level with which the unit would work best, and a brief description, of the unit itself. Many contain tapescripts, but no slides or tapes are available, except in a few cases where indicated. Prices are noted, and an order blank is included. (CHK)
