AAUSC Language Program Articulation by Catherine M. Barrette, Kate (Wayne State University) Paesani, Sally Sieloff Magnan

Language program articulation, i.e., how the skills level (1st and 2nd year courses) integrate with the content level (3rd and 4th year) is a metric used to evaluate the strength of a language department. Goals of successful articulation are both to provide a smooth transition between levels, and, by so doing, to encourage retention up the curriculum. Annual journal of the AAUSC. Contains articles on the topic of advanced foreign-language learning. In this edition, we are updating the overall design (cover and interior) of the journal, which has had the same look throughout the series.
