Using a communicative and action-oriented approach to teaching French, we hope to put meaningful and authentic communication at the centre of all activities. Using technology, teachers and students will explore opportunities to interact with other French speakers from various sociocultural groups in real-life contexts. Join us!
"Communication is a social act. In order to learn French, therefore, students need to see themselves as social actors communicating for real purposes."
The goal of this TLLP (Teacher Learning and Leadership Project) is to develop communicative and action-oriented
approaches to teaching French with meaningful and authentic
communication at the center of all activities.
Using technology, FSL teachers and their students will explore opportunities to interact with
other French speakers from various socio-cultural groups in real-life contexts.
Too often, we are teaching French in isolation with the teacher as the only
model of French and with interactions only occurring between students. Students will explore how to use iPads, apps,
Google Drive, blogs, Skype, Google Hangouts etc. through well designed tasks
that will engage students and help them understand "the why" of learning
French. Please join us!
