This Core French workshop will focus on purposeful yet engaging strategies that are based on the redesigned curriculum. Teachers will learn some innovative ways to develop students’ oral language skills in French. The presenters will share activities that can be used in any unit, as well as some unit-specific activities that are grade-appropriate, interesting for students, and have a purpose for language development. Stacia will share some ways to use technology in the language classroom and will have sample materials for inclusive Aboriginal Education. Favourite songs and games that develop students’ abilities in French will be shared. A literacy-based approach, some Intensive French methodology, and tried-and-true activities will be presented. Regardless of abilities in French, teachers will go away with some new and fun ideas to use immediately in their classrooms.
