Composition and Conversation through the Cultural History of La Francophonie
Professeur : D. Kress
Texts : Online and photocopies
The goal of this course is to help you improve your written and spoken French through an intensive study of advanced grammar and vocabulary used in everyday life. In this course you will learn not only formal French structures taught in standard French classes, but vocabulary and structures used in daily life.
Services to Students with Disabilities:
It is the policy of Centenary College to accommodate students with disabilities pursuant to federal and state law and our commitment to equal educational opportunities. Students seeking support services/accommodations for a disability must first register with Disability Services (a division of the Counseling Center, 318-869-5466/5424, located on the ground floor of Rotary Hall) and should begin this process as early as possible. Students with accommodations approved through Disability Services are responsible for contacting the faculty member in charge of the course prior to or during the first days of the term to discuss needed accommodations. We will gladly make appropriate accommodations based on disability to ensure the playing field is and remains level for all students.
College Diversity Statement
Centenary College of Louisiana values human diversity in all its richly complex and multi-faceted forms, whether expressed through race and ethnicity, culture, political and social views, religious and spiritual beliefs, language and geographic characteristics, gender, gender identities and sexual orientations, learning and physical abilities, age, and social or economic classes.
1. You are expected to come to class prepared every day. Study the material specified on the syllabus or in class and be sure to write out the assignments! They will be graded.
2. Keep in mind that all class work will be conducted orally in French and your attendance and participation will have a definite impact on your grade. The activities of listening to a language, speaking a language, and writing a language all demand active skills. This class will require your active participation.
A language course is different from other courses at the college because you work on oral communication skills. The only place you can work on these skills is in class. Other classes may not require your attendance because you can learn the material from the book; however, there is no substitute for the dynamic interaction that takes place between you and your teacher—a trained language acquisition specialist. For this reason this course has a strong policy on absences.
*Make ups: No make-ups for an unexcused absence are given.
N.B. For this course, each student will research one important individual or event and produce a written presentation about that person or event that will become part of an online encyclopedia written for students of French.
