Colloquium on Teacher Preparation for Elementary School Foreign Language Programs: Proceedings (New York, New York, October 1993).
Duncan, Greg, Ed.
Proceedings of a 1993 colloquium on the training of elementary school language teachers include a number of presentations and summaries of discussion. Papers include: "Framework for Discussion" (Carol Ann Pesola); "What Are the Current Trends in U.S. Teacher Preparation?" (Janet Towslee); "Why Foreign Language Standards?: Background" (C. Edward Scebold); "A Proposal To Develop Teacher Standards" (Helene Zimmer-Loew); and "Standards and Goals 2000" (C. Edward Scebold). Discussion summaries address these topics: existing models for the preparation of elementary school foreign language teachers; what is envisioned as the ideal model for such preparation; and implications for the future. Appended materials include excerpts of proposed national standards for foreign language education; five generic aspects of exemplary teaching practice, identified by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards; national education goals for the year 2000; three examples of elementary school foreign language teacher competencies (Iowa State University, North Carolina/Center for Applied Linguistics, and National Teacher Partnership Institute); and a 1993 survey on teacher education and preparation for elementary school foreign language learning administered by Advocates for Language Learning.
