Student Perceptions of an Elementary Foreign Language Curriculum.
Hancock, Mary; And Others
A survey measured the attitudes of sixth-graders in one school district concerning the school's elementary foreign language program, with the intent of improving the program's design and content. Students identified these program strengths: organized and prepared teachers; respectful teachers; interesting lessons; positive student attitudes toward second language learning; student feelings of success; and appreciation of group work and learning games. Less than half felt grading was necessary. Students also identified several program areas needing improvement: reading and writing instruction; motivation for further language study; and student input into topical content. Results are felt to contribute to development of the elementary foreign language curriculum. Tabulated student survey responses are appended. (MSE)
