Assessment
and Goals
:

Students will consider the status of French as a minority language and culture on their own continent, thereby enriching their understanding of American history. They will also achieve a better understanding of the historical and contemporary relationships between French and English-speaking peoples of North America, as well as the perspectives of bilingual writers who opt to write in a minority language. Students will read assigned texts in French, discuss in French, complete 3 short (5-7 pp.) papers in French and complete mid-term and final exams.

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THIS COURSE FURTHER EXPANDS FRANCOPHONE COURSE OFFERINGS, AND AS SUCH, IS AN IMPORTANT ADDITION TO THE FRENCH CURRICULUM.
