Professional Learning/Development for Teachers of French
Teachers of French are isolated in the Northern Rivers Region of NSW. Because close colleagues from Brisbane follow a different curriculum, we rarely meet them. When it comes to learning a language, there are definitely common strategies, some work well while we wonder how to improve others in order to make them enjoyable and useful for students.
It is always difficult to teach another country's culture. The best way for students to make sense and realize how important it is to learn another language is to travel to francophone countries. This is not always possible. Therefore, our role as teachers is to bring French culture into the class. It is not always easy when you don't have time to regularly go to France... Internet offers a lot of different resources but finding what you want can really be time consuming.
Our Professional Learning days offer teachers the opportunity to meet and share their experiences but most of all to give them interesting and useful resources in order to include as much as they can French culture in their teaching : games, projects, hands-on activities, songs, films, video-clips and advertisements...
