Celebrating 100 years of PSMLA!
A glance into the archives...
The 1920 PA State Educational Association Journal directed foreign language teachers as follows:
“The aim of modern foreign language teaching should be intelligent reading, that is, reading without translation, reading without the medium of English. At all times, however, the teacher should strive toward a full well-rounded knowledge of the language studied. Teachers should adopt a composite method using as a basis of their work the so-called “Direct” method."
(From the 1969 Fiftieth Anniversary Edition of the PSMLA Bulletin)
