  • Oral Language Support for French Cohort Teacher Candidates

    Course Description
    This non-credit course has been designed to support teacher candidates in expanding their communicative fluency to better equip them to teach in an FSL or FFL classroom. The course maximizes opportunities for conversations and discussions in French through:
    • situated role-plays that relate to the classroom and larger school context
    • student- or instructor-initiated discussions about French teaching and learning
    • informal conversations about day-to-day classroom topics
    • songs and games and other ludic activities for the French classroom
    • and various other activities in response to students’ communicative needs
    Social, emotional and cultural connections will be used to provide context and emphasize meaning. Participants will use and refine essential classroom language, ask and answer questions, engage in typical class scenarios, and explore themes connected to FSL and FFL curricula.

    The course is student-driven, which means that students' language needs will inform the course content to a great extent and the instructor will take into account the various language levels of all students. The activities that are assigned will integrate into students' other coursework and related practicum tasks.
