My Students

French is an official language in 29 countries of the world.

Learning a World Language is a great way for students to learn and understand the diverse cultures of the world, as well as reinforce their understanding of their own culture.

Students in my school come from a low income area, however what we lack in resources, we make up for in diversity, with students representing over 40 countries.

High performing students have an opportunity to take high school level language classes in middle school, choosing between either French or Spanish. The students love working both independently and cooperatively, utilizing as many authentic materials as they can. Transforming the classroom into a Parisian setting will help to engage students by immersing them in the culture of France.

My Project

My 8th grade French students have been studying language with me for two, some even three, years. As a thank you for all their hard work in this high school level course, I would like to provide each student with a copy of the English language edition of the French classic story, The Little Prince.

Students have been discussing the story of The Little Prince throughout their French courses in 7th and 8th grade.

Upon the completion of the course at the end of the school year, I would like to provide each student a copy of this text, complete with a personalized note acknowledging them for their effort and hard work during the course.
