Directory of Foreign Language Teacher Preparation Programs in the United States: A Preliminary Report.
Grosse, Christine Uber; Benseler, David P.
The status of a directory of foreign language teacher education programs is reported. The directory's development was undertaken in response to a shortage in language teachers and as an aid to potential language teachers' in their searches for appropriate training programs. The report reviews the disparate sources of information about programs that have been available and comments on the lack of coordinated efforts to disseminate information. A description of the forthcoming directory follows, outlining its proposed content and the process of its preparation. Preliminary findings are also summarized. These include a tabulation of state-approved institutions with foreign language teacher education programs and an examination of trends and patterns in state teacher certification. The report concludes with a brief discussion of the implications of the project for addressing the teacher shortage. A brief bibliography is included. (MSE)
