Zéphir, F. (1998). New directions in the study of French: Toward a francophone revolution . In Alley, D. & Heusinkveld, P. (Ed.), Communications, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, Communities. (pp. 27-40). Valdosta, GA: Southern Conference on Language Teaching.

This article would be of particular interest to postsecondary teachers of French, though it may interest teachers of other languages. The author takes 2 decades of decreased enrollment in French courses as impetus to encourage French programs to incorporate the Standards and to redesign the curriculum with students' needs in mind. Zéphir advocates for authentic Francophone materials and student usage of French in meaningful contexts as a means of both complying with the Standards and reversing negative perceptions of French.
