The Classroom Library Project in South Africa.
le Roux, Sophia
This paper discusses the current state of language instruction and accompanying materials and describes elements of the Classroom Library Project in South Africa. The Project was initiated by the Department of Education to increase the supply of suitable material in African languages for elementary schools. Highlights include: shortcomings in terminology standards developed by Language Boards; inadequate vocabulary development; lack of appropriate texts for translation; shortage of language experts who are not already involved with the publishing industry; quality control and the future of the Project; advantages of classroom library collections; and effective utilization of school library resources. A table showing the provision of books to primary schools through the Project for the years 1983-1993 is appended. (Contains 12 references.) (AEF)
