French Programs: Some Major Issues. Evaluation and Synthesis of Studies Related to the Experimental Programs for the Teaching of French as a Second Language in the Carleton-Ottawa School Boards.
Stern, H. H.; And Others
This report presents an overview of three major research projects on the instruction of French as a second language. The projects are being carried out in the schools of the Ottawa Roman Catholic Separate School Board, the Carleton Roman Catholic Separate School Board, and the Carleton and Ottawa Boards of Education. The projects are concerned with two major issues: (1) the time allotted to French instruction and (2) the choice between treatment of French as a subject or as a medium of instruction. Studies explore differences in teaching strategies, contrasting immersion programs, core French programs, extended French programs, and specialized programs, such as partial immersion; French for single subjects; and bilingual education at the high school level. The report also provides responses to questions on second language teaching and learning asked by the Ontario Ministry of Education, specifically on the topics of child development, organization, content, methodology, culture, and teachers.
