The French Language Program offers teachers the opportunity to improve their skills, earn credit for professional development or continuing education, or qualify for a three-year MAT degree program. Teachers interested in joining the MAT program in French may apply after successful completion of two French courses in the World Languages Institute. The MAT program, which requires thirty credits of course work in French methodology, language, culture, or literature, is designed primarily for individuals already teaching French. These courses may be accepted for state certification. Details of the MAT program are available at the Department of French or its web site at http://french.rutgers.edu.

TOPICS IN FRENCH LITERATURE FOR TEACHER OF FRENCH: LE TOUR DE FRANCE DANS TOUS LES SENS (CR. 3.)
16:420:509:90:14981
ASYNCHRONOUS
AUBERT
This course is designed for MAT students who wish to become more enlightened and critical tourists by exploring a few of the most significant landscapes that have shaped France’s culture across the centuries.
Together we will take a truly interdisciplinary Tour de France combining geography, history, literature, philosophy, art, and architecture, among others. Each session will be devoted to one landmark (ranging from King Arthur’s legendary forest to Versailles’ utopic project, Monet’s gardens, to today’s Parc de la Villette in Paris). Internet research, worksheets, artworks, and other visual and written sources will be used to both introduce students to the cultural dimension of these sites and help them develop regular pedagogical hands-on activities that will lead to the design of a full-fledged module to be used in K-12 classes. Conducted in French.
