Ecole Bilingue de la Nouvelle Orleans
Getting there
821 General Pershing Street, New Orleans, LA

Event goal: The goal of this workshop is to learn concrete methods and strategies to integrate culture and cultural identities into the French classroom. This training will identify the main challenges encountered by French teachers when teaching integrated culture in their French classes, and propose pedagogic methods and concrete educational activities for overcoming such challenges. The session will thus serve as an opportunity for discovery and updating of teacher knowledge and resources, but also a chance for reflection on the cultural identities in the contemporary French/Francophone world, as well as their role in the French classroom. It will emphasize practical techniques and include guided presentation of associated tools for the classroom. This workshop will alternate between plenary presentations and work and reflection in smaller groups.
