Profile and Pathways - Supports for Developing FSL Teachers' Pedagogical, Linguistic, and Cultural Competencies. Michael Salvatori and Alina MacFarlane, 2009.
The report examines three broad categories relating to FSL teaching: pedagogical skill, cultural competency, and proficiency in the target language. The report also provides information on a variety of current initiatives and activities related to the development of second language teacher skill and knowledge. National initiatives such as the Roadmap for Canada’s Linguistic Duality 2008–2013: Acting for the Future, the role of post-secondary institutions in promoting Canada’s linguistic duality, and the national agreement on internal trade are outlined, as are models of language teacher knowledge and skill development in Europe and in the United States. Following the recommendations in the report is a brief summary of three recent CASLT initiatives supporting language teacher development.
