Language and Man: An Exploratory Foreign-Language Program for Grade Six.
Bartos, Marilyn; And Others
This curriculum guide presents a program introducing sixth-grade children to the study of language, of languages other than English, and specifically of French. An initial section includes a variety of activities designed to interest students in the study of language, its peculiarties, complexities, and importance in life. Prior to the first French lesson, two days are spent learning about gestural language. The French language is introduced through its sounds and through a look at the French-speaking world. Basic skills are then introduced in the following order: greetings, time and the calendar, weather, the body and clothing, school, home and family, food, and sports. (JB)
