A Systematic Approach to Teaching Declarative and Interrogative Intonation Patterns in French.
Garrott, Carl L.
The development, testing, and classroom use of an instructional module for teaching French intonation patterns to beginning students are described. The module begins with the "accent tonique," the simplest of French intonation patterns, which the student must learn to detect and imitate in progressively more difficult combinations before going on to learn the more varied imperative and interrogative patterns. The rationale for the approach; performance skills objectives; a description of the pilot study in a public school system; both an instructor's guide and a student's guide; a list of classroom instructional materials; criterion-referenced tests (with answers) for each of the objectives; and suggestions for preinstructional, practice, and follow-through activities are included.
