FFS 293 - Language Pedagogy and the Classroom


0.5 unit(s)
This intensive prepares students who wish to be language assistants, interns, and drill instructors, specifically for FFS courses at the elementary level (105-6, 109, but also 205 and 206). In addition to learning how to construct and execute drill exercises and prepare other activities and pedagogical work to help students learn the building blocks of the French language and reinforce structures, students have the opportunity to explore a variety of teaching methods, such as task-based language teaching (TBLT) and the communicative approach to language teaching. Being principally task-based, students get hands-on experience in FFS courses mentioned above and are eased into the teaching experience, building a tool box with a variety of creative, fun, and useful exercises that they can put into practice during the semester.  

Prerequisite(s): FFS 212  or the equivalent.

First six-week course.

Not offered in 2020/21.

Course Format: INT
