Language Learning through the Arts
In this free virtual workshop, French as a Second Language (FSL) teachers from across Canada will gather to explore how the arts can enrich language learning. Through a number of experiential artistic activities and exchanges, we’ll explore how the arts can activate the senses and help us think creatively to deepen language learning – and have fun! Ideas will be shared for both elementary and secondary settings. French is the target language of this workshop, but activities may be adapted for other target languages. Free resources will be shared with teachers following the workshop.
As part of the Arts Alive Teachers’ Night In series, this Zoom event is FREE for teachers. All teachers who attend will be entered in a raffle for a free virtual workshop for their class with an NAC teaching artist, a $25 Starbucks gift card, and a $25 Uber Eats gift card. Spots are limited and participants must register in advance – register today!
