I teach French III, Pre-AP French V, AP and a Literature course. French III is a low intermediate French course that focuses mainly on becoming comfortable with the language and creating more complex language in different time frames. Both Pre-AP and AP focus on broader and more abstract themes that enable each student to speak about the six global themes of esthetics, science and technology, the search of self, family and community, contemporary life and global issues. Though the literature course varies from year to year, it is designed as a rigorous overview of selected Francophone literature, poetry, short stories and films. Recently, we studied a breadth of Québécois films and are moving onto looking at works of Caribbean writer Maryse Condé.
