AB1: French Competencies Taught Through Classroom Stations

The following workshop is geared towards K to 8 teachers in both FCC and Immersion classroom settings. This workshop will integrate French reading, writing, speaking, and listening through student directed stations that allow teachers to reach multiple learners and engage with specific students in small groups to reach their individual learning needs. This workshop will engage teachers that attend to collaborate with like-minded teachers who teach similar grade levels. IT will offer teachers a template and guide for creating unique and engaging stations for instruction and learning. This workshop will integrate both hands on learning resources and technology. Each participant will need to bring a device to participate in a variety of stations and join the workshop digital platform. We look forward to having you in the workshop and building the French competencies of your students through thematic stations that are engaging and offer students independence, structure, and exploration.

Sarah Barton is an experienced FCC and French Immersion educator.



AB2: Incorporating Indigenous Perspectives into FCC through Beading

This unit plan on bead-working is a skill that students from grades 4 to 12 can learn and be successful at. This unit plan is easily adaptable to all grade levels.
