What exactly is a Franconnexion Session?
French for the Future provides a free toolkit of educational resources specifically designed to raise awareness about the advantages (and the fun!) of speaking French. You can use these resources to organize a Franconnexion Session in your classroom with your students in any grade from 7 to 12!
The result? Your students are more motivated and engaged in their learning process because they better understand the value of what you are teaching them.
Prepare to make a “connexion”!
“Why do I have to learn French?” You’ve probably heard your students ask the question a hundred times.
What’s missing is a connection! The connection between what they learn in the classroom and the usefulness, the value, and the importance of speaking French outside of a classroom setting. That’s why French for the Future created the Franconnexion Sessions.
What’s in the toolkit?
We offer you three options, choose the one that best suits the needs of you and your students.
Go Green: A digital toolkit exclusively
Go Fun: A digital toolkit + 4 educational posters
Go Big: A digital toolkit + 4 educational posters + small prizes for your students
The digital toolkit includes videos, trivia games, as well as other engaging and motivating activities for your students, all in French! A lesson plan is provided with each resource.
How do I get my toolkit?
Toolkit for teachers
To receive your Franconnexion toolkit, subscribe during one of the two annual subscription periods in September and January, and fill out the online form. We will send you your resources at the end of the subscription period.
Warning! You may continue to request your toolkit outside the subscription period, but only the Go Green option is available.
The Franconnexion Session toolkit is available for free anywhere in Canada. In return, we only ask you to answer a short survey after your event, in order for us to know what you thought of our program.
2. Toolkit for parents
French for the Future has opened a special Franconnexion Session registration form for parents looking for additional resources to use. Once you have filled in the form, you will have free access to the same online toolkit of educational resources we send to teachers. It is as simple as signing up and downloading the toolkit using the link provided!
