Belgum, Kirsten
Unterrichtspraxis/Teaching German, v50 n2 p184-197 Fall 2017
This article investigates how language contests can serve as an effective element of articulation in language education. Educators and researchers have reflected on how to facilitate the progress of language learners from high school to college through shared learning outcomes across institutional divides and by developing common guidelines for assessment and curriculum development. Less attention had been paid to cocurricular events, such as language contests. In analyzing data collected in a survey conducted among collegiate volunteers for a high school language contest hosted at a university, this article points to the relevance of cocurricular educational activities in connecting high school and college language learning and programs.
