Adair-Hauck, B. & Donato, R. (2002). The PACE model: A story-based approach to meaning and form for Standards-based language learning. French Review, 76(2), (265-276).

This article would interest FL teachers at all levels who are looking for alternative approaches to teaching grammar. The authors begin with a concise overview of what the Standards contribute to FL learning and teaching, particularly with regard to new ways of viewing communication and encouraging learners to reflect upon the target language system. They review the long-standing debate regarding explicit and implicit grammar instruction, underscoring the shortcomings of both approaches, and advocate an alternative story-based, guided participatory approach. The article ends with an invitation to view a follow-up article with concrete examples of the approach.
