Spoken French

Spoken French

I thought I’d share something the students and I created in class yesterday. As a way to encourage everyone to speak more French with each other, we have come up with a rubric. Before putting all of this together, everyone had a chance to discuss with a partner and try to define what Exceeds, Fully Meets, Meets, Minimally Meets and Not Meets the Expectations look like.

Damien Cooper, a man I admire a lot because of his educational beliefs, says that “Assessment is a collaborative process that is most effective when it involves self-, peer, and teacher assessment”.

Starting on Monday, all students will be expected to self-assess their spoken French. It will be done at the end of each day and we will use the rubric we have created together to do so.

P.S. The rubric is in French but make sure to ask your child to translate it for you. This could be the start of a great discussion during dinner time!
