July 13 - August 21
This course focuses on using authentic resources in French to stimulate discussion, creativity, and a lasting love of French language and culture. Participants will explore French music, art, and history to create new works of art using poetry, theater and storytelling. All activities are accessible through the ACTFL World-Readiness Standards for Learning Languages. Participants will use the three communication modes (Interpretive, Interpersonal and Presentational) in innovative ways, interpreting though authentic resources and using the arts to express ourselves in the presentational and interpersonal modes. Along with colleagues, participants in this course will discuss the resources, explore the arts as a means to interpret and assess, and design classroom experiences that can be used with authentic resources beyond what we explore in this course. (Open to teachers of French. Conducted in French.)
Students who matriculate into an Instructor-Facilitated course should adhere to the dates listed on the website. Final coursework should be submitted within one week after the course end date. Course extensions beyond one week are subject to a $50 fee.
