My Students Can! Turning your classroom in a newsroom

Juliette BOURDIER, University of Colorado Boulder

Last semester, my third year French students and I built a magazine.

The primary learning objective was to develop speaking and writing  competencies in a professional environment.

Students had a real goal: to build both a magazine and a website. They interviewed people from the French community in person and via video calling. They wrote articles, made videocast, etc. They had to discuss, analyze, present, defend and negotiate their work and subjects.

I will consider the success of Bruitdemoquette.com but also the obstacles and limits that an instructor faces when designing truly student-centered classes
