AAUSC 2007: FROM THOUGHT TO ACTION: EXPLORING BELIEFS AND OUTCOMES IN THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE PROGRAM is the new volume in the annual program published by Heinle on behalf of the American Association of University Supervisors, Coordinators, and Directors of Foreign language programs (AAUSC). The series contains articles on the topic of advanced foreign-language learning. This volume contains thirteen authoritative articles that offer multiple strategies for eliciting and articulating beliefs and expectations from both professors and students in foreign language instruction. The original articles examine the topic from five perspectives: Historical Perspectives, Curriculum Development, Student Beliefs and Learning, Beliefs and TA Training, and Administration and Assessment. This volume sheds light on differing perspectives of the methods, contents and goals in the foreign language classroom in the hopes that it will diminish the discordance between teacher and student expectations, thus eliminating a source of common frustration in the class experience.
