Field Trip Ideas January

If you want to organize a field trip around Boston with your students and need some ideas, we recommend the small book written by Rhea Hollis Atwood and published in 2004, entitled Boston's French Secrets: Guided Walks That Reveal Boston's French Heritage. It provides a step-by-step exploration of neighborhoods known for their French inhabitants, French architecture, and French influence. For more information, click here.

Bring your students to discover a master of French comic filmmaking!  This retrospective is an unprecedented opportunity to discover a neglected master of comic filmmaking, a disciple of Jacques Tati and longtime friend of Jerry Lewis. "A bracing rediscovery... Sparkling, poignant and subversive, Mr. Étaix’s films have drawn on the art of silent cinema, the circus and the music hall, while holding up a mirror to the absurdities of life in the modern world” (The Wall Street Journal).
