Ever wondered how to harness the power of inquiry-based learning in your language classroom? In this session, participants will explore how to leverage the inquiry process to promote developing language competencies while integrating culturally responsive and reflective resources.

Rubina Sharma

Ruby Sharma has nearly two decades of experience as a French teacher, department leader, school leader, and system leader in both Core and Immersion FSL programs in York Region District School Board. She is also a course instructor and developer for FSL Additional Qualification (AQ) courses. Ruby embarked on her journey with the FSL Disrupt team through their shared Twitter Professional Learning Network. She was immediately captivated by the dynamic and open dialogue led by Mandy, Mimi, and Amanda, focusing on diversifying texts in French as a Second Language (FSL). Their effective use of technology and social media to drive tangible change across education boards and districts highlighted their collaborative spirit. This motivated Ruby to join their mission to help diversify the texts used in FSL classes. Ruby believes that fostering inclusive and diverse FSL learning spaces, from an anti-oppressive and anti-racist perspective, should be the shared objective of all FSL educators.
