It Takes a Department! A Study of the Culture of Proficiency in Three Successful Foreign Language Teacher Education Programs
Brooks, Frank B.; Darhower, Mark Anthony
Foreign Language Annals, v47 n4 p592-613 Win 2014
The aim of this study was to investigate the contexts and practices of three undergraduate foreign language teacher education programs identified by ACTFL/Language Testing International and reported by Glisan, Swender, and Surface (2013) as having a high success rate in propelling their graduates into the Advanced proficiency level on the ACTFL scale. Data were collected during interviews with faculty and students at each of the three campuses. The results revealed a number of common practices among the programs, which undoubtedly contribute to their success.
