The Foreign Language Teacher: The Lifelong Learner. Northeast Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (29th, New York, NY, April 1-4, 1982).
Mead, Robert G., Jr., Ed.
The articles and presentations in this publication relate to the general theme of the 1982 Northeast Conference, the foreign language teacher as a lifelong learner. The concept that in the best teachers learning and teaching form a progressive continuum, and that learning and teaching occur simultaneously is the basic assumption underlying all the presentations, workshops, and seminars. This report is divided into four sections. The first section deals with the less-commonly taught languages as well as ideas for intensive training in them. The second section treats contemporary cultures, specifically French, German, Italian, and Spanish. Part three concerns teaching and testing, with articles on merging teaching methods and textbooks, and proficiency testing in second language classrooms. The final section deals with technology and the foreign language classroom, with special attention to the use of audiovisual materials and techniques and microcomputers. (AMH)
