Paul V. Rockwell (Section 01)
Through class discussion, debates, and frequent short papers, students develop effective skills in self-expression, analysis, and interpretation. Literary texts, articles on current events, and films are studied within the context of the changing structures of French society and France’s complex relationship to its recent past. Assignments include both creative and analytic approaches to writing. Some grammar review as necessary, as well as work on understanding spoken French using video materials. In this course, taught synchronously with possible asynchronous features, we will use a range of digital tools (including video, document collaboration, presentations, virtual field trips) to support goals of language acquisition and critical thinking. Highly recommended for students planning to study abroad.
Requisite: FREN 205, or completion of AP French, or four years of secondary school French in a strong program. Fall semester: Senior Lecturer Uhden. Spring semester: Professor Rockwell.
