Fast Forward French Class
Mrs. Henyan's Fast Forward (college-level) French class enjoyed a hands-on lesson in impressionist painting as part of student Elizabeth Selby's presentation on the artist Claude Monet.
 
As a project assignment, each student selected a famous French person as a topic for an in-class presentation.  The students conducted researched on the person and then presented a lesson about them while speaking only in French.  Props -- and even a French pastry to share with classmates -- enhanced the students' presentations.  
 
See the video below as the class has fun learning to paint in the style of Monet.  It's impressive to hear their conversations in French!
