Le neuvième art à l’œuvre: bande dessinée for the French classroom | A Continuing Education Workshop for French Teachers

Bande Dessinée for the French Classroom, comics

July 29, 2019 - July 30, 2019


Will Eisner Seminar Room, Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Musuem
Room 205, Sullivant Hall, 1813 N. High Street
Columbus OH 43210

Because our first workshop was so successful in 2018, we’re doing it again!  This 2-day workshop will introduce teachers to the history of French-language comics and vocabulary needed for textual analysis, as well as address how to create language learning activities based in this kind of authentic text content so as to respect the artistic medium and the goals of the language classroom. Activities are designed to enrich language teaching from the beginning through advanced levels, including attention to AP and IB themes. The workshop will take place in the reading room and classrooms of the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum, and all materials (books) and lunches will be provided. Each day will begin at 9:30 AM and end at 5:00 PM.  The majority of sessions will be conducted in French. The workshop will be facilitated by Ohio State University faculty and staff.

Repeat participants are very welcome. There will be some repetition in curriculum in that we will again have general bande dessinée vocabulary and history sessions, but activities will be updated and the specific books that we will read and discuss in their entirety will be different.

This program is co-sponsored by the Ohio State University Department of French and Italian and is made possible by a generous gift from Engie-Axium.
