One of the goals for the World Language department this year is to try and develop curriculum and instruction in which language and content reinforce each other to deepen student learning. This means that where appropriate, we will integrate other subject matter into language learning and we will use the foreign language to reinforce and further their knowledge of other disciplines such as Math, Science and Social Studies.
For example, Grade 2 students at ACST have been learning to tell the time during their Math lessons. It’s been really insightful to see them making connections and using their newly acquired Math skills to tell the time in French. We will be doing some fun time-related activities this week and next week – making our own clocks, talking about our daily routine and what we do at certain times of the day, etc. Click on the video below for a sneak preview:
