Immersion day | French Teachers’ Workshop

French Teacher’s Workshop, March 16

Join us in celebrating the French-speaking world of francophones by participating in a workshop specifically designed for middle school and high school French teachers.

Accompany your students to the Immersion Day and attend the workshop designed for teachers while they attend their own program.

Our workshop leader, Anne-Sophie Morel, is a specialist of FLE at the University of Franche-Comté in France. She will offer Middle and High School teachers a workshop on ways to integrate literature in the language classroom.

The goal of this training session is to offer fun activities to help motivate students to read French and Francophone literary texts, and to help students work on different skills (written comprehension and production, oral comprehension and expression).
The training session will also offer an opportunity for teachers to update their knowledge of French and Francophone literature and to discover new authors and texts that will enrich their teaching practice. Emphasis will be placed on multimedia resources that can be used in French literature classes.

Training Session Content:

  • Methods for using a literary text in a language class: How to adapt the process of text analysis and tool development to the pedagogical use of literary texts at all learning levels
  • Fun activities to accompany texts ("suggestion box")
  • Practical Application: Run-through of certain activities, especially the guided pedagogical online course "Literature and multimedia in the FLE classroom", to discover and try out websites offering resources relating to literary texts

Teachers will leave the session with the following documents:

  • A PowerPoint presentation of all the ideas broached during the session
  • A list of contemporary French and Francophone authors
  • A list of multimedia resources

Besides, there will be prizes for everybody!
You will receive an attendance certificate
