Summary

The provisional guidelines developed by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages for pre-service foreign language teacher education programs are intended for discussion and commentary from the profession and to assist in program development and evaluation. Guidelines are presented for three areas: (1) personal development, based on the knowledge and skills derived from a strong liberal arts education; (2) professional development based on knowledge and skills derived from education and experience in the art and science of pedagogy; and (3) specialist development, based on knowledge and skills associated with being a specialist in the language and culture to be taught in the classroom. For each of the three areas, specific program subareas are noted for which guidelines for coursework and experiences, some discussion, and indicators of program consistency with the guidelines are provided. Within the personal development section, these subareas include communication, acquisition and use of knowledge, and leadership. For professional development, they include the rationale for language study, theories of child development and learning, curriculum development, instruction, the instructional setting, foreign language in the elementary schools, and foreign language education faculty. For specialist development, they include language proficiency, culture and civilization, and language analysis. (MSE)
