Anti-oppressive practices in French teaching in BC


Course description

Welcome to the French immersion workshop series 

This workshop will provide participants with tools for teaching French through an anti-oppressive lens. Via an inquiry-based activity, we will demonstrate the utility of simple concepts drawn from linguistics to drive student engagement and student appreciation for the connection between language education and social justice. Participants will model French linguistic diversity into two lesson plans and use anti-oppressive vocabulary in the context of French language assessment. Teachers will see how to position both themselves and students as creators of Francophone culture and not simply users or consumers of it.

Cet atelier offrira des outils afin d’enseigner le français sous un angle anti-oppressif. Par le biais d’une activité d’apprentissage par enquête, nous ferons la démonstration de l’utilité de simples concepts tirés de la linguistique afin d’encourager l’engagement et l’appréciation des étudiants pour l’interaction entre l’apprentissage d’une langue et la justice sociale. Les exploreront la diversité linguistique française dans deux plans de leçons et utiliseront du vocabulaire anti-oppressif dans le contexte d’évaluation du français. Les verront comment se positionner avec les é en tant que créateur.trices de la culture francophone et non simplement comme utilisateur.trices ou consommateur.trices de celle-ci.


Participants must be in-service French immersion teachers.
