Ukrainian Study, 1-3: An External Experience.
Guilderland Central School District, Guilderland Center, NY.
The objectives of Ukrainian language study are to: (1) understand a native speaker speaking normally on a subject within the pupils' experience, (2) speak sufficiently well to make contact with a native, (3) read with understanding on a subject within the pupils' experience, and (4) write with relative ease on contemporary topics. Along with learning the language, the student is expected to acquire a knowledge of the country and Ukrainian cultural history and social structures. The teaching method should be a balance of the aural-oral concept and the classical grammar approach. The course should comprise the study of grammar and idioms (from texts and selected reading), reading, conversational practice, dictations, free composition and vocabulary study. Texts for Ukrainian 1 and 2 are listed, but any suitable text may be used for level 3. Subject matter and procedures for the three year-long courses are outlined, and supplementary activities are suggested. A bibliography of textbooks, dictionaries, and literature concludes the guide.
