Foreign Language Training Through International Media. Final Performance Report.
A federally-funded project had as its goal the development of six videotaped instructional modules and a teacher's guide to be used in college French classes, especially in black colleges and universities. The core material consisted of television programs from French-speaking Gabon, Cameroon, and the Ivory Coast. Initially, 45 Howard University faculty and students were surveyed to determine their interest in such a series and their opinions of the form it should take. Late arrival of the television programs and the editing process delayed the project's progress. The results exceeded the initial grant requirements by including seven videotapes instead of six, ranging from 27 to 37 minutes each. The teacher's guide (not included in this document) is a 200-page student/teacher guide with reproducible pages. The project report includes an executive project summary, notes on the project implementation, and appendices consisting of the sequence of project activities, summaries of student group and faculty evaluations of the videotapes, a list of the television programs received, and an overview of the videotapes and guide excerpted from the teacher's guide.
