Description

CALPER Working Paper No. 4 <br> The authors report on a three-week pedagogical intervention for the teaching of German modal particles, which draws on the methodologies of contrastive learner corpus analysis and data-driven learning. The intervention was administered in the context of a German-American telecollaborative partnership, an electronically mediated learning configuration in which geographically dispersed learners in parallel language classes use Internet communication tools in order to interact with one another on the completion of a variety of teacher-guided projects.

In 1990, the Department of Education established the first Language Resource Centers (LRCs) at U.S. universities in response to the growing national need for expertise and competence in foreign languages. Now, twenty-five years later, Title VI of the Higher Education Act supports sixteen LRCs, creating a national network of resources to promote and improve the teaching and learning of foreign languages.

LRCs create language learning and teaching materials, offer professional development opportunities for language instructors, and conduct and disseminate research on foreign language learning. All LRCs engage in efforts that enable U.S. citizens to better work, serve, and lead.

8 Areas of Focus

Each LRC has a unique story and mission, but all LRC work is organized around eight basic areas:
  • Research
  • Teaching materials
  • Digital tools and resources
  • Assessment
  • Professional development
  • Less commonly taught languages initiatives
  • K-12 initiatives
  • Outreach and dissemination
