Required Live Classroom Schedule

As a part of the requirements of the course, students are expected to attend live sessions with any French IV instructor (1 session/unit). The dates/times of live sessions will be provided in this section of the newsletter each week. The instructor will communicate with students in course announcements should there be any change.

* No session scheduled this week

To access the live classroom, students should click the link in Blackboard titled "Live Classroom French 4." It is suggested that for the first time they arrive approximately 15 minutes early to ensure that they are able to enter the chat room and check the functionality of all tools. Students should log in with both their first and last names, or if attending by teleconference, they should identify themselves to the instructor upon entry.

NCVPS French teachers frequently initiate a month-long Twitter photo challenge to engage students and encourage the use of their new skills. This February, we're bringing it back! To participate, simply post a photo according to the daily theme each day this month with the hashtags #NCVPSFrenchJTM (JTM = Je t'aime = I love you) and the daily theme on Twitter! Students without Twitter accounts can still participate by texting or messaging their submissions to their instructors. Stakeholders are also invited to join the fun! Feel free to share photos from past dates as well! Photos will be shared with students in announcements. Happy tweeting!
