Confluent Education: A Human Approach to Language Teaching.
Galyean, Beverly
Utah Language Quarterly, p9-31 Spr 1977
Language educators are beginning to realize the need for merging affective-cognitive learning endeavors in the classroom. Language is seen as a vehicle for self-learning and expression and the language class is viewed as an appropriate environment wherein self-reflection can lead to meaningful interpersonal sharing. Confluent language programs allow for personal and interpersonal awareness, communication and growth while working to achieve target language proficiency. The resources of behaviorism (habit-reinforcement), existentialism ("here and now" interest), and humanism ("here and now" teaching based upon the ongoing interests of the students, subject learning as the springboard for self learning, interpersonal sharing and dialogue, and self-awareness founded upon a variety of affective and cognitive factors) provide the framework for designing confluent language programs.
