Francais langue seconde, primaire. Programme d'etudes. (French as a Second Language, Primary Level. Study Program).
Quebec Dept. of Education, Quebec.
A detailed curriculum outline for the state-mandated elementary school program in French as a second language for Quebec English schools is presented. Primary objectives are the development of affective values, social values, and the sense of sociocultural belonging. The curriculum was adapted from the 1972 curriculum, with more specific overall and terminal objectives and a more consistent structure from institution to institution, and with priority given to communication with emphasis on content rather than form. Reading and writing are included as additional means of communication. The outline includes: (1) an introductory and background discussion; (2) a discussion of general program orientations, including foundations, methodological considerations, the global objective, general objectives, the broad approach, the minimum core content, the role of the four language skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing), and the desired level of usage at program exit; (3) a section on the organization of the program's linguistic content; (4) charts of linguistic content for the first cycle, including terminal objectives for each domain (factual information, intellectual attitudes, affective attitudes, action indicatives, and social acts) and a lexicon; (5) a similar charted linguistic content for the second cycle; (6) a discussion of student evaluation and the roles of the education ministry, school agencies, and teachers in the process; and (7) additional considerations such as scheduling, the instructor's role, instructional materials, and content enrichment. A glossary and list of references are appended. (MSE)
