15 years of Immersion teaching In British Columbia, Canada including, but not limited to: Français langue et littérature 8-12 Art dramatique (French Drama) TPRS Planification Italian Sciences humaines (SS in French) 9 -11 Core French 8-12
I love creating historical role plays and simulations in Socials (or Sciences humaines) in order to get students involved with historical perspective and creative and critical thinking. Using fine arts to work on language concepts also fascinates me. I'm starting a new TPRS adventure with my core French classes after an inspiring workshop this summer. And then, there are grammar and literature, the staples of immersion teaching in secondary; I have much experience with the classic approaches, but love learning of new and creative ways to integrate them. I also did a stint as an Italian teacher for a couple of years and it was very refreshing and humbling to teach a language I was new to - what an experience!
