Hall, Ken; Clayton, John
This resource guide is designed for teachers and others interested in fostering Spanish instruction in the schools of the United Kingdom, especially at the secondary level. The first of nine chapters looks at the status of and rationale for Spanish language instruction in the United Kingdom. The second chapter addresses topics in instructional management, including identification of learner needs, using available resources, and evaluating instructional materials. Filling in the gaps in instructional materials by creating or adapting existing materials is the subject of chapter 3. Chapter 4 offers ideas for incorporating Spanish culture into the classroom environment, and chapter 5 offers guidelines for the teacher in the arrangement of visits and travel. The sixth and seventh chapters focus on the objectives of student assessment and on standardized tests. Finally, chapters 8 and 9 provide, respectively: guidelines for helping students who want to pursue higher level courses in Spanish or to use it in jobs and careers; and information on courses, conferences, and other resources for the future professional development of the teacher. A glossary and list of useful addresses are appended. (MSE)
