This course will help teacher candidates develop the skills, knowledge, and professionalism expected of beginning core French teachers at the Intermediate and Senior levels. We will focus on:
- methods and techniques to facilitate the teaching/learning of listening, speaking, reading and writing as interrelated processes
- integrating grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, culture, language awareness, learning strategies, media, technology, literature, and a variety of assessment strategies into lesson plans and long-term teaching units which reflect current Ministry of Education guidelines;
- electronic conferencing to support a collegial learning environment;
- the creation of a professional electronic portfolio.
Candidates will be involved in reflective and active learning. This course is offered in French.
Students must have six full-year university courses in French AND demonstrated written and oral proficiency (regardless of whether it is the first or second choice teaching subject).
