Recently, I have been taking part in #fslchat.
This chat is run by Jen Aston and Dawn Telfer. There is a new topic each week that is brought for the community of educators to discuss.
The chat is from 9 - 10 PM EST on Sunday nights, with 5 or 6 questions.
This chat is one of the best chats I've seen. French is a language that Canadians should be speaking, as our country is bilingual. French is a class in elementary, but is an option for 3 years in High School.
Most students in Canada speak English, and only some take french in their education.
This chat allows for the community of educators to discuss ways to change their teachings in french. Past topics include:
As a student, this gives me a way to show my teachers how they can keep me engaged in french class.
It's always interesting to see what other teachers bring to the table that night. I like hearing about how they teach their students everyday.
Teachers all have their own ways of teaching their students. I see it every day at school.
Jen and Dawn do an excellent job with this chat.
The chat is always run most Sundays throughout the year and they plan chats ahead of time.
My favourite part of Sunday nights are when I get to see other ideas and strategies they use in their classroom and participate in this amazing chat.
On December 18th, I will be moderating the chat and we will be coding a Christmas Card en français! Join us!
To end this post, I will leave you with this quote. Keep your style of teaching, it is unique. If all teachers were the same, our education system would be offaly boring.
"You are original, don't die a copy."
