About this learning opportunity

All learning opportunities with the ERLC regional team will focus on the Alberta Education & district priority areas.

Start the year off tres bien with the basics of FSL - the program of studies (POS), pedagogy and assessment.  We'll address key points like:

  • The hidden 'gap' in the FSL POS that can unknowingly frustrate you and your students and how to bridge it.
  • Why we tend to teach FSL in thematic units when no one conducts their lives that way.
  • How to get out of the habit of teaching French in English.
  • Planning with a focus on DOING, not just KNOWING in French.
  • Where to find some key resources.

Please come prepared to share an idea or two.  Consider adding it in advance to the FSL Teacher Idea Sharing spreadsheet!

This learning opportunity is being subsidized through funding from Alberta Education.
