 Session 1:              How Do We Attain Cultural Competence?

                                     Presenter:    Viktoria VanEck, Peninsula Catholic High School

 We attain cultural competence through words.  Words inspire the world.  They facilitate travel and secure commerce.  Words inform us about the world others live in, their customs and beliefs.  They define the world of tomorrow, our plans to protect our planet, and ourselves.  Words conjure up poetic visions and literature.

Session 91 :           Les banlieues in France from 1945 to Present: An    Evolution Towards a Crisis Situation

 

      Presenter:    Isabelle Reeves, St-Anne’s Belfield School

 

In light of the recent attacks in France, the crisis in the urban suburbs of France seems to take a new importance. The goal of this session is to provide instructors with tools that will permit them to better address these issues in class and explain their importance within contemporary French society.

The multiples attacks that took place in Paris, followed by the terrorist attack of July 14th in Nice, oblige the French instructor to lead a dialogue with students about the current state of contemporary French society. The French banlieues and the crisis they have undergone since the 80s is an important component of this discussion. An understanding of the history of the banlieues since the end of the 2nd world war to present day becomes indispensable to seeing the bigger picture and also brings into light a national identity crisis. This session proposes a toolbox complete with authentic oral and written comprehension exercises that the instructor can use in class. This lesson is for advanced students currently in an AP course or preferably having completed an AP course but can be adapted to intermediate levels.

Award-winning French film director, Hugo Chesnard, will present two short films. The first one, l'Hiver est proche (Winter is Close) tells of a developing confrontation between the Roma  (Gypsies) and the inhabitants of a French town bent on evicting them. Though unfamiliar to Americans, the Roma are one of Europe's oldest and most persecuted immigrant groups. The film's themes parallel issues raised by recent events related to immigrants trying to make a home in Europe.  (French with English subtitles). The second short movie, La France qui se lève tôt (Early Rising in France), is based on a real story that took place in Paris in the summer of 2006. It deals with an illegal migrant worker about to be deported back to Mali. The story is told as a social operetta. French with English subtitles).
