On Ne Voit Bien Qu'avec Le Coeur: Le Petit Prince à Urbana

My students need copies of Le Petit Prince to continue their study of French grammar and vocabulary while reading a classic French story!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The magical travels of Le Petit Prince encourage students to get creative with the French language while studying grammar and vocabulary and engage students as the begin to study French literature and history.

Established as the public high school for the city of Urbana in 1872 and now serving over 1,100 students, our student body is quite diverse in regard to academic, cultural, ethnic, and economic backgrounds.

The University of Illinois Family Student Housing is located in Urbana, contributing many foreign students. Racial/ethnic background of the high school is 48.4% white, 34.1% black, 5.1% Hispanic, 6.2% Asian/Pacific Islander, and 0.2% Native American, and 6.1% multi-racial/ethnic. 51.6% of students are low income, 3.5% are limited English proficient, and the dropout rate is 0.4%.

My Project

Le Petit Prince is a classic French story that chronicles the galactic travels of "the little prince." There are illustrations to catch student's attention and plenty of important grammar and vocabulary for students to study in context! Additionally, there are life lessons in the story for students to analyze, debate and discuss. Students will be able to use the text to improve their reading comprehension in French, write compositions and textual analysis, and express themselves creatively in French.

This project will help students see French in a new way - instead of straight from a textbook - and inspire them to use French creatively rather than as something they have to do to meet college requirements.

Finally, reading a real novel in French will prepare them for more advanced texts and improve their French comprehension.
