  • Week Of Respect

    Posted by Lorraine Brooks at 10/31/2014
     

    For National Respect Week Ms. Broomall’s French 3/3H  freshmen worked with anti-bullying materials created by the French government to address bullying and harassment issues in French schools.  http://www.agircontreleharcelementalecole.gouv.fr/quest-ce-que-le-harcelement/quest-ce-que-le-harcelement-en-milieu-scolaire/   Students learned comprehension and viewing strategies to increase their understanding of  the authentic materials found on the French website.  They also used online apps WORDLE and TAGXEDO to create wordclouds with the themed vocabulary. After a cross-cultural comparison, students expressed surprise that the French schools are more than 10 years behind the American educational interventions in working to eliminate bullying in schools.  As a culminating project, students  created anti-bullying posters entirely in French using the vocabulary of the unit.  All the students did a great job, but the class judged Isabelle Katri’s poster to the best of all.
