(This presentation offers a model for incorporating the engaging, contemporary themes of global engagement, sustainability, and entrepreneurship into a "languages for professional purposes" course.  Using an interdisciplinary and communicative approach, our  method is designed to expose students to business trends and cultural practices in the francophone world.  At the same time, it allows them to develop a better sense of their own career interests as well as the presentational and cultural skills necessary to  pursue internship and employment abroad)

02/26/2021   Round-Table Discussion: Strategies for Teaching Texts in Zoom (Charlene Helmuth, Benjamin Legg, and Susan Kevra) (2:30 PM)

(We’re defining texts broadly - from the signage in a foreign subway to more formal literary texts. Come see how students can share strategies in a beginning Portuguese class to read signs and navigate themselves on a virtual tour of São Paulo. In an intermediate French class, Persuall, dubbed a “truly social reader” lets students annotate an excerpt from a  Simone de Beauvoir novel to navigate through a somewhat challenging text while zeroing in on grammar and vocabulary they can use in their own writing.  And finally, see how the Brightspace Discussion Board can be used in an upper-level Spanish course)
