Some of the caligrammes created by the Collegiens of 2016/2017
Designed for more advanced students, this program is divided in sequences (a total of 4 or 5 for the school year) with litterature studies on the exploration/travel theme. They are taught an innovative approach that connects with middle-schoolers' interests and subjects studied in public school.
Students are also challenged through creative writing projects. For example, this year, they wrote their own play, created calligrammes (see pictures above) and participated in a couple twitterature contests. They all worked in class with their teachers to provide very creative and strong tweets. One of them was selected and won the "Silver Prize" (see below) .
Combined with workshops to improve and maintain their French writing/reading skills, this program provides a dynamic learning environment and bring a new style to keep students' motivation at a high level.
Various materials - all age appropriate- will be used.

"Mots français volent dans le vent
Caressent les feuilles
Je ferme mes yeux et pense
Comme une tempête les mots s’enragent."
