Description

Class Experience

In Course 3, students will read the TPR novel Carl ne veut pas aller en France. The TPR website synopsis is:

"Carl is a 9-year-old boy and he is not happy. His mother wants to live in France. Carl does not want to go to France. The idea is absurd! He doesn’t speak a single word of French. When he arrives, he doesn’t like French food. He doesn’t have any friends. He is desperately unhappy. But when he finds starving, stray dogs in the side streets in Paris, he discovers that he is not the only one who is miserable. Will Carl get to the dogs in time or is it already too late?" Isabella from our previous two books makes a brief appearance.

All reading will be completed together in class. No outside reading is required.

The schedule will approximate one-three pages per lesson. Follow up activities, such as posting student projects of illustrated dictionaries and practice games will be shared on the Outschool homepage.
I have taught French at all levels from middle school to college since 1995. I have designed online language courses since 1999. I believe online learning is an effective way to learn a language, both as a teacher and a learner. While I have designed this course to be a paced course, it offers flexibility to work at a learner's pace within the weeks to accommodate students' learning preferences and schedules.

See below for student responses to the question: "How did your teacher communicate with you and how frequently?"

(Note, student grammatical, spelling, and punctuation errors are preserved.)

"My teacher talked to me often, she helped me alot [sic] through out this course. She would keep me updated, give me tips and helped me if i [sic] was stuck, she also would say good morning and things like that, i [sic] know its [sic] not relavant [sic] but i [sic] thought that was really nice."

"She would always end with have a good day and a lot of teachers don't do that."

"YES. She was great. Best teacher as far as communication that I have had while doing online classes."

"She sent us tips and tricks and responded on time to any questions or concerns."

"I would ask her questions about the guided practices and grading. She would update me on assignments I didn't finish."

"She went in depth to answer my questions in a timely manner, and never made me feel like the question was dumb to ask. she [sic] also reached out to me with things i [sic] could to to do better understand the lesson and help my grade."

"This was my first time taking an online course. I was really scared and worried it would be hard but it wasn't. i [sic] rarely ever had technical issues. My teacher helped me and explained every question i [sic] had. My teacher made sure i [sic] was always on task and assisted me with tasks i [sic] should complete. Overall my experience was great , and i [sic] would recommend this class."

"I was able to learn things that were supposed to be covered in French 1 in school but my teacher didn't cover it well. The communication between the teacher and students was well oriented and it would be hard to misunderstand the messages she sends. I enjoyed this course!" 
Optional practice activities are provided. All reading will be completed together in class. No outside reading is required.
Please purchase a copy of Carl ne veut pas aller en France by Karen Rowan before the first day of class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
