WORKSHOPS I'VE PRESENTED

TABS Conference,November 2021, Race, a discussion of class and caste: Race is seen as a binary issue: either you are Black or you are White. This idea, however, neglects to consider the complexity of the issue which involves ethnicity, identity, prejudices, origins, power, class, and the caste system. This workshop proposes a distinctive perspective on discussion around race and racism. It addresses the dangers of confining communities in a binary tandem, which raises culpabilities linked to racial identities while validating the rise of white supremacy. The workshop offers ways to open the discussion with students and colleagues, while drawing different groups in the conversation through their own experiences. Finally, it provides a space where Equity and Justice embrace each individual.

The French Media Connection: "Bring the latest Francophone video clips, music, stand-up comedians, movies, and other media-based literary sources to your lesson. This session will highlight different techniques and lesson plans, based on the world of entertainment, that will stimulate your students' proficiency in French, as well as engage their curious minds."

Bringing a mutliculture dimension to each and every French class: This session will show how to incorporate rich cultural and updated content into the classroom. It will highlight different techniques and sources to be tapped, including literary pieces, movies, clips, online resources and social media. Teachers attending will also have the opportunity to collaborate and learn from each other.

De la culture à la multiculture: This workshop is geared to language teachers who are eager to incorporate rich cultural content into the classroom on a daily basis. It will highlight different techniques and resources to be tapped, including literary pieces, movies, clips, online resources, social media and others, all of which bring a multicultural dimension and awareness to language students. Examples provided will be mainly from the Francophone work. Teachers attending will also have the opportunity to collaborate and learn from each other.

Supporting Students through Transitions: This panel will examine the ways secondary schools and universities can support students in transition.  Whether it be the period between lower school to upper school, upper school to higher education, or higher education to the workforce, institutions are charged with helping students become well-adjusted citizens and school personnel have an important role in assisting students' adaptation to change.  Panelists will share insights, programs and perspectives that aid in student transitions on their campus and beyond.
