In our profession, beauty in the arts and literature is all around us. We have the opportunity every day to nourish our own aesthetic lives as well as those of our students.

French teachers have an amazing career!

Do you have a favorite aesthetic activity that you offer your students?
French teachers have fun! Another opportunity to celebrate with students. Feb 8-17, Carnaval au Québec: snow sculptures, dog sled races, parades, and canoes crossing the icy St. Lawrence River. With resources like Roch Carrier's "Le Chandail de Hockey," Mes Aieux's "Dégénérations" and writers like Pierre Vallières, French teachers get to appreciate our French-speaking neighbor to the north.

[03/28/20]   Thank you ACTFL (see link below)! This is just one of the many resources being made available for teachers right now, free of charge. Personally, I have taken advantage of a couple of webinars recently, and sites like inthinking.net and thisislanguage.com are offering free subscriptions. These sites helped me immensely as I transitioned to teaching via Zoom.

Le Grand Concours and testing for the Seal of Biliteracy are working with teachers if you still want to administer these tests.

We hope everyone stays safe and healthy!
