Title
L'enseignement de l'anglais dans les colleges anglophones. Avis au ministre de l'enseignement superieur et de la science
Abstract
This 1990 report makes a series of proposals to Quebec's Ministère de l'enseignement supérieur et des sciences designed to ensure the coherence and quality of English-language instruction in Anglophone CEGEPs. Part 1 of the report provides a descriptive overview of college-level English instruction. Noting that a significant number of college students have serious language problems, the section assesses the scope of the problem, factors that contribute to students' language problems, and consequences of poor language skills for a student's college education. Concluding comments suggest that the nature, causes, and consequences of poor English skills in an Anglophone college are similar to those of poor French skills in a Francophone college. Part 1 continues with an analysis of the English curriculum. Required English courses are described, including literature and linguistics courses and remedial courses taught at the elementary level. In addition, course objectives and instructors' responsibilities are discussed. Next, the report examines a variety of initiatives undertaken by Anglophone CEGEPs to provide their students with the best possible English instruction. Part 2 begins by justifying the involvement of the CEGEP Council of Colleges in this issue, and then offers recommendations to the Ministry concerning objectives, required courses, remedial courses, instruction, learning centers, the responsibility of faculty from other disciplines, the assessment of language competence, and the colleges' role.
