Projets de developpement de curriculum niveau secondaire (Secondary Level Curriculum Development Projects).
Martin, Anne L.
Two Australian language curriculum development projects are discussed: the Australian Language Levels (ALL) Project and the National Assessment Framework for Languages at Senior Secondary Level (NAFLSSL). While distinct, both projects are closely linked. Each project was launched in 1985 in a favorable climate and in response to cost, enrollment, and political problems in language education. The ALL Project has published a set of guidelines for the development of elementary and secondary level second language programs and has developed a series of sample lessons for Italian. The project team also provides consultation in program development. The NAFLSSL project is developing exit language tests for secondary education, addressing two particular problems: the large number of languages tested, and the "advantage" held by students whose native languages were not English; a three-level, three-segment exam structure was proposed in response. Attachments include a table of language use, and a diagram of the framework of stages from junior primary to senior secondary. (MSE)
