ABSTRACT This article discusses the components of a FLES methods course in a state where K-12 certification in second languages is now mandated. Special emphasis is placed on Integrated or Content-based Instruction, second language acquisition, and a unique practicum incorporated into the methods course which enables the participants to demonstrate such techniques as Total Physical Response, storytelling, and dramatization. Finally, the course evaluation procedure is presented as a means of assuring that teachers' needs are being met as their second language programs expand to upper levels.
