Integrated French

Anglophone school boards may offer an Integrated French Program that starts in Grade 7 (following Grade 6 Core French or Intensive French) and ends in Grade 12.

In Grades 7-9, the total amount of time allotted for the Integrated French program (French and Social Studies) must be equal to the total time allotted for English Language Arts and Social Studies in the English program.

During each year at the senior high school level, Integrated French consists of one French language arts course and one other course taught in French from the approved course offerings in the Social Studies, Personal Development and Career Education or Arts Education areas of the Public School Programs document. Core French will not be accepted for credit purposes in the Integrated French program.

Time allotment is as prescribed in the Public School Programs document.

 

Program Overview

The establishment of the Integrated French Program represents a long-term commitment on the part of a regional board.

 

Suggestions for Success

It is recommended that wherever it is reasonably possible, the same teacher be responsible for both French and Social Studies at each level. This will facilitate an integrated, interdisciplinary program organization based on the natural affinity between these two courses and on their connected learning outcomes, as suggested in the Public School Programs document.

The total amount of time allotted for the Integrated French (French and Social Studies) should be equal to the total amount of time allotted for English Language Arts and Social Studies in the English program.

In order to create and maintain an atmosphere that supports and facilitates French second language learning, it is recommended that wherever it is reasonably possible, a specific classroom be dedicated to the Integrated French teacher.

Students should have access to currently authorized teaching materials as well as to a variety of supplementary resources, including authentic documents and technology.
