Final Report of the Director on the Combined Second and Third Level National Defense Language Institute for Elementary and Secondary School Teachers of German Conducted by Stanford University at Bad Boll, Germany.
Strothmann, F. W.; Lohnes, Walter F. W.
This is the final report on the National Defense Language Institute conducted in Germany during the summer of 1963 for elementary and secondary school teachers of German. It is recommended that the program be repeated, with certain adjustments. The Institute held second- and third-level programs. It was concluded that the participants' teaching skills would improve due to greater linguistic proficiency, learning new classroom techniques and increased knowledge of Germany. The report is extensive, covering: publicity, participant application and selection procedures, demographic and academic information on participants, institute curriculum, instructional materials, activities, academic credit, housing, and a general outline and evaluation of the program. Appendices furnish publicity brochures and clippings, form letters, lists of participants and staff, program schedules, bibliographies of instructional materials used, certificates awarded and final test scores.
