Analyse comparative des objectifs d'apprentissage de quatre programmes d'enseignement de base du fruneais langue seconde au Canada (Comparative Analysis of the Learning Objectives of Four French as a Second Language Teaching Programs in Canada). Publication B-185.
In spite of their responsibilities and specific contexts in matters of teaching core French as a second language, the Canadian provinces sometimes face common problems such as having to adapt a single program to various schools when the level of basic knowledge of students of French varies. Several original solutions easily adaptable to other provinces are presented. The limited channels of information restrict the sharing of resources and experience. This research could contribute to the improvement of interprovincial dialogue because it aims at a comparative analysis of four official core French programs as second language programs used in Canada in 1989. The elements compared are the learning objectives qualified by De Landsheere and De Landsheere as "the key to the method of curriculum development." The analysis grid of objectives conceived by D'Hainaut has been adapted and applied to the objectives of the programs of British Columbia, Alberta, and Ontario, in order to bring out their specific characteristics, resemblances, and differences.
