Secondary German Program Guide.
British Columbia Dept. of Education, Victoria. Curriculum Development Branch.
This guide consists of a set of goals and learning outcomes for the entire secondary German program, with emphasis on practical application of present-day spoken and written German. The goals and outcomes are divided so as to provide a suitable structure for course development and materials selection at the local level. The importance of evaluation is discussed, and the goals and outcomes are spelled out for each of ten "levels" and for culture. The ten level system shows a sequential development and can be adapted for programs of varying types and lengths. An appendix contains a paper that examines current research into the importance of learning a language, the ideal stage in child development to begin the study of a second language, effective language teaching, how children learn languages,and several other factors to be considered in setting up a language program. An extensive bibliography completes the volume. (AMH)
