Module Making: A Study in the Development and Evaluation of Learning Materials for French as a Second Language.
Stern, H. H.; And Others
This report on the French Teaching Modules Project is divided into four parts. Part one describes current theoretical concerns in second language curriculum and outlines a scheme for second language curriculum development. Part two explains the history of the project and the underlying principles of modules. Part three describes case studies which illustrate the experimentation with modules. The case studies reported have been examined in terms of topic selection, substantive and linguistic research, module design, and formative evaluation and revision procedures. Part four offers a description of a scheme for the systematic evaluation of modules and describes two case studies in which this scheme was applied. (Author)
