Experiential Learning in Your Classroom

cf_french_main_.jpg

A new service for French educators!

The idea behind “experiential learning” is to create lessons that resemble real-life experiences. This services transforms your classroom into a museum, a geographic location, an historical event, or other simulation.

A teacher may propose an idea or choose from the following:

  • A celebration of Louis Braille, the manipulation of the Braille alphabet, and a trust walk. This experience would ideally take place around the time of International Sight Day, but can be created any time throughout the year.

  • Quimper Faïence: Museum set-up, exploration of artifacts, snacks, video, survey.

  • 100th Anniversary of l’Armistice: a simulation of a visit to the WWI museum in Kansas City with a scavenger hunt, artifacts, poppies, and the calligrams of Apollinaire.

  • Café du Monde complete with beignets and chicory coffee. Students will chat about Cajun culture while watching a parade and listening to music.

  • Pierre Bonnard Exhibit: Students will see numerous Bonnard paintings. Quotes attributed to Bonnard will be on display.

  • Earth Day Celebration: The centerpiece of his event is the song “Fou du Bassan” by Zachary Richard. There will also be a PowerPoint presentation that highlights facts about the gannet, the first bird to be rescued from the Deep Water disaster.

Services are available Monday through Friday between 1:00 and 3:30pm.
