I am entering my 22nd year of teaching French as I continue teaching
8th grade this year at Lawrence Junior High. Over the past 30 years I
have studied French language and culture in France, Québec and Fort
Kent, Maine. I very much look forward to sharing my knowledge of and
love for the French language with the students of Lawrence Jr. High.
There will be a Junior High field trip to Montréal.. This trip will be
available to 7th and 8th graders and will take place the Fri-Sun of
Memorial Day Weekend -May 23-25, 2014.
I can be reached at school office hours 1:45-2:15

to the study of French. My goal for each student is that you attain
basic French expressions, vocabulary, pronunciation and culture and
begin to communicate in French. Because you will be graded for French
class I wanted to make sure you understand how your grade will be
formulated. Your grade will be based on the following criteria:
In-Class Activities = 25%
Projects = 25%
Quizzes = 25%
Here is why:
In-Class Activities and homework -
Most of your vocabulary will come to you through activities designed to
expose you to French. Participation in these activities is vital to
success You will receive a weekly class activities grade. You will
have at least 3 in class assignments each week. Some will be written
and some oral. Your quarterly in-class activities grade will be an
average of your weekly grades.
You will show your understanding of vocabulary by creating projects
that you will share with the rest of the class. You will be graded for
each project not only for your own work but for being a respectful
audience for others.
As your ability in French increases to you will have a chance to show
what you know and what you can do by completing quizzes. Quizzes will
cover only one topic at a time such as days of the week, months of the
year, numbers, colors etc.
In order to assess your over-all ability in French you will complete
one test at the end of the quarter. The test will cover a combination
of topics. There will be a review of material before the test.
