Atelier pédagogique: Creating Thematic Units and Assessing for Proficiency
Lead your own Révolution française by moving away from textbook-driven teaching toward proficiency-based, thematic units. Learn how to devise essential questions for a thematic unit; write Can-Do Statements appropriate for students' proficiency levels; select authentic materials for interpretive assessments; and create proficiency-focused interpersonal and presentational assessments. Bring an existing unit and textbook for reference. Come away with templates for unit design and lesson planning, websites for French thematic units, and sample performance assessments and rubrics.

Activités engageantes à la québécoise
This workshop will be hands-on and will contain grouping, vocabulary, cooperative, speaking, reconstructive, circumlocution and white board activities to name a few. Participants will complete the activities so that they are comfortable with them and will be asked to give suggestions for using these activities to suit their own curricular needs. These ideas will be noted and sent to participants via email after the workshop. In French.
