Graduate Summer Institute for French Teachers

MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY FACULTY OF EDUCATION

SUMMER INSTITUTE FOR FRENCH TEACHERS (GRADUATE LEVEL) 2018

OVERVIEW

The Faculty of Education of Memorial University will offer (subject to funding, enrolment and approval by the Faculty Council) a Graduate Summer Institute for French Teachers (SIFT) during the 2018 summer session at the St. John’s Campus. Applicants will be French teachers, principals, assistant principals, program specialists, etc., who have an undergraduate degree with a major in French or have significant experiences in the French language giving a proficiency level of B2 on the Council of Europe's common reference levels. (DELF LEVELS) Those who are currently registered for a Graduate Program may select one or both of these courses as electives.

COURSES

The Institute will consist of two graduate-level courses, French 6810 (tentative) and Education 6928 (tentative). Completion of this institute does not guarantee acceptance at a future date to a graduate program in the Faculty of Education or in the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures. If candidates are subsequently admitted to a graduate program, the applicability of these two courses towards the program will be at the discretion of the head of the appropriate department.

Français 6010/Education 6928 

Didactique de la nouvelle grammaire (provisoire) Ce cours poursuit deux objectifs complémentaires : d’une part, l’étude des fondements linguistiques de la nouvelle grammaire et d’autre part, sa mise en œuvre dans les cours de français langue seconde. Pour atteindre le premier objectif du cours, nous étudierons les apports de la linguistique à la nouvelle grammaire. Nous aborderons les différences entre la grammaire traditionnelle et la nouvelle grammaire ainsi que les notions linguistiques essentielles à la compréhension de l’analyse des phénomènes grammaticaux dans le cadre de la nouvelle grammaire. Puis, la deuxième partie du cours sera consacrée à l’application didactique de la nouvelle grammaire dans les programmes d’enseignement du français L2 (français de base, français intensif, immersion précoce et tardive). L’accent sera mis sur son intégration dans les méthodes d’enseignement actuellement prescrites (méthode communicative, approche neurolinguistique, apprentissage basé sur les tâches, etc.). 

Education 6925 : 

This course acquaints students with the current practices of identifying and meeting diverse student needs in an inclusive second language classroom. The course presents an introduction to the fundamental principles related to the assessment, identification, teaching, and learning of students in a second language classroom with identified exceptionalities and diverse learning needs. Students will be provided with a selection of readings , actively participate in classroom discussions, collaborative activities and exchanges, and engage in self reflection.
