Language for Travel Syllabus. Field Test.
Chicago Board of Education, IL.
The course outline for instruction in language use in foreign travel is not language- or culture-specific but provides a framework for teachers to develop language-specific courses and materials at any appropriate upper elementary or secondary level. Its general objectives are to generate sudent interest in travel, develop student communicative confidence, help achieve understanding and appreciation of another people's culture, and stimulate further foreign language interest. The outline provides a series of topical units covering trip planning, arrival, lodging, food, purchases, sightseeing, and emergencies. Each unit consists of a list of related subtopics that may be broad enough to develop into full units, a list of vocabulary areas, cultural subareas, and specific suggested activities to develop in the classroom. A sample lesson plan for the unit on purchases is included. (MSE)
