Summary

The articles in this book address some of the major issues facing foreign language teachers in the next decade. These issues grow out of the concepts that received most attention in the 1970s: communicative competence, alternatives to traditional instruction, articulation of the curriculum in view of realities in U.S. foreign language departments, and expanding beyond the textbook. Specific titles and authors include: (1) "What Can I Do to Help?" (Theodore V. Higgs), (2) "The Textbook as Curriculum" (Robert Ariew), (3) "Breaking the Book Barrier" (Mary B. Flynn), (4) "The Push Toward Communication" (Theodore V. Higgs and Ray Clifford), (5) "Curricular Alternatives for Second-Language Learning" (Linda M. Crawford-Lange), and (6) "The Problem of Articulation" (Dale L. Lange). (JB)
