Integrated French and Spanish Curricula: Language Planning, Communicative, Linguistic and Cultural Interactions.
Two guides are presented to assist in organization of a thematic approach to instruction in French and Spanish that is helpful in integrating language and culture. Each booklet contains the following elements: (1) a general introduction to the factors that must be present in the teaching situation for real communication to take place, and to communicative functions, situations, and cultural insights; (2) an outline of an integrated French or Spanish curriculum according to themes, possible functional grammatical structures, possible cultural points, and natural interactional use of the language; (3) a discussion of teaching for communication including examples of speech acts, language registers, and a brief consideration of the difference between focus on content and focus on method; (4) a listing of language functions and formulae in the foreign language; and (5) rhetorical strategies in French or Spanish used in functional language. A list of the teachers who participated in the graduate courses and in the groundwork for the two booklets is provided. (AMH)
