The Relative Effectiveness of Core French Delivery Models
The Relative Effectiveness of Different Core French Delivery Models
Review of the Research. Callie Mady, 2008.
This report summarizes existing knowledge about modes of delivery of core French across Canada. Possible avenues suggested by research for improving core French include assigning consistent, sufficient and dedicated time to core French and increasing the length of class periods in compact core French formats. Programs could focus on using a more communications-oriented pedagogy with the use of e-pals, simulations, games, skits, drama and conversation, in order to give students opportunities to develop real communication skills. Research also recommends the use of distance education models to supplement the limited classroom course offerings and ensure access for students in rural and remote areas.
