Total Immersion Camping.
Conklin, Mildred; Murphy, Stephen
A total immersion program at North Rose-Wolcott High School, Wolcott, New York, involves speaking in the target language over a period of hours or days, the assistance of at least one fluent speaker for each six students, and a planned schedule of activities. Programs have varied from activities at the home of a teacher, all-day interaction at school with students from other high schools, an annual overnight in the school, and a weekend at an established camp. All activities have been successful and have led to increased comprehension, fluency, and feeling for the language. Preparations necessary for total immersion camping are outlined. The following sample materials for carrying out the plans are included: preliminary proposal for the administration and Board of Education, letter to families of students, schedule of events, games, list of what to take, contract, and followup report to the Board of Education, 1974.
