Opening the Door to French to All Types of Learners
  • Opening the Door to French to All Types of Learners (Schein)
    The presenter will offer an overview of studies in Europe and in the U.S. that focus on the teaching and learning of foreign languages to learners with disabilities, including ESL, review some of the most promising best practices in the classroom, and focus on key practices pertaining to the teaching of French.
  • Un Enseignement atypique: enseigner le français langue étrangère à des enfants handicapés (Frazier)
    L'intervenante partagera ses observations faites au cours d’une année scolaire en ce qui concerne l’enseignement qu'elle a procuré à une classe de dix élèves handicapés, atteints de handicapsparfois lourds comme la trisomie, l’absence de langage ou de crises d’épilepsie sévères. Cette session a pour vocation de montrer que nous pouvons tous être des précurseurs dans l’inclusion de tous les élèves.
  • French for the Learning Disabled? Mais oui! (Kashuba)
    Basing her observations on current research and personal experience, the presenter will share various techniques for foreign language instruction to students with learning disabilities. They include the use of authentic materials, interpersonal and presentational communicative exercises, comparisons and connections, and cultural insights. Although intended for college students in French, these materials can be applicable to other levels and languages as well.
