"Enseigner les cultures francophones dans la perspective de AP French" - Pierre-Yves Roux
May 6 and 13
11 am – 2 pm 

Join Pierre-Yves Roux, language teaching expert for a workshop that will enable participants to incorporate French culture into French language courses.

There will be a special segment from Magali Doriac-Froehlig, director of AP Language at the College Board, for the module on May 6th. She will present a segment about the components of the AP French program in the College Board, AP exam results and trends, and resources for AP French teachers. 

  Description: This module will provide participants with the thinking and tools that will enable them to introduce preparatory activities to AP French Courses. The rationale guiding this module is that cultural aspects are an integral part of language courses, whether in the perspective of AP French certifications or otherwise. The most significant issues to address are the themes, content, activities, and methodology that will allow students to better understand the specificities of French and Francophone cultures. The module will focus on two themes from the AP French program: “Beauty and art” and “Quality of life.” The module will present, comment on, and make activities available to participants regarding these two themes.

"Structurer une unite didactique a partir d'un document authentique" - France Education International 
May 20 and 27

Join Valérie Schmittbiel, expert at French Education International for a workshop that will enable participants to adopt teaching French news and document analysis into their teaching practice.  

  Description: This module aims to help participants adopt motivating practices and master the skills necessary to immerse students in French news/current events and give them the tools to analyze and apply them. Upon completing this module participants will be able to select a range of source documents adapted to their students’ ages and interests in order to create a motivating and effective learning experience. Participants will use an authentic document to observe the structure of a didactic unit in order to identify the different stages it consists of. After identifying these stages, participants will be asked to specify the function of each stage. Participants will then identify the principles to be adopted and the pedagogical practices that are implemented in each of the stages that create a didactic unit.
