Teaching Modern Languages in a Mixed-Ability Community.
Sinnerton, Henry
Journal of the Modern Language Association of Northern Ireland, n1 p65-71 1978
It is proposed that modern languages be placed in the center of the secondary/comprehensive curriculum. Modern language study in the secondary school is considered from the following standpoints: academic; linguistic; travel; skill development in speaking, listening, and other language processes; and cultural and social benefits. It is also proposed that mixed-ability teaching methods best fit comprehensive education. The mixed-ability method is briefly compared with streaming, banding, and setting methods. (SW)
