What the French Academy did today:
What an amazing weekend! The students loved Bastille Day and had a great time participating in decorating The East Room, gorging themselves on snacks, and dancing together in the evening. They even staged their own French Revolution! Today, students went to their normal classes before taking a field trip to Middlebury College in the afternoon.
In Level 1 classes, students read and understood maps from Francophone cultures. Tomorrow, they’ll learn how to give simple directions with regard to distance and location.
Level 2 students learned how to identify and name a variety of countries and languages in the world. In their next class, they will learn how to ask and answer questions about some topographical and geographical features of Francophone countries and the US.
In Level 3 classrooms, students learned how to describe the geography and natural resources of Francophone countries. Tomorrow, they’ll learn how to identify the main idea and a few supporting facts in an article or other form of media related to environmental problems confronting Francophone countries.
Level 4 students are focusing on social issues and solutions, so today, they learned how to summarize stories about issues that are important to youth in Francophone countries. They also discussed their aspirations for the future. Tomorrow, they’ll be conducting research and summarizing social issues from target countries.
We can’t believe that camp is almost over. We love seeing all the progress the students have made, and we’re excited to see how much they’ll continue to make in the last week!
