    Dear all,

    Language Pedagogy @CUNY is now accepting contributions from language instructors across CUNY. Rebecca Raitses and Angélique Ibáñez Aristondo, both doctoral candidates from the French Program, have been developing this teaching resource website for the last few months. Their goal has been to provide a collaborative space to share and showcase the most effective, creative, and interactive activities, assignments as well as class projects implemented in language classes across CUNY.

    Drafting and publishing a refined version of materials that you designed and taught is especially valuable for anyone planning to apply for teaching positions. Indeed, doing so grants visibility as well as a professional polish to the pedagogical work you are the proudest of, in addition to helping develop the teaching portfolio many job applications request.

    Here’s the link to the website:

    The latest on Language Pedagogy @CUNY:

    – Guest contributor Oliver Sage published a piece entitled “Tactile Vocabulary: Designing Images.” In this post, Oliver explains how they designed and implemented an engaging activity in which each student creates their ideal outfit using fashion and textile words in the target language.

    – Rebecca Raitses shared “Calligram Self Portraits,” a smart and inspired tribute to French poet Apollinaire in which beginner students draw a description of themselves.

    – In “Assigning Rebel Ladies,” Angélique Ibáñez Aristondo shares two assignments based on the socially-engaged comics Les Culottées by French illustrator Pénélope Bagieu.

    Contact us if interested in contributing. Feel free to spread the word to any CUNY language educator who may be interested. Looking forward to reading from you!

    Best wishes,

    Angélique Ibáñez Aristondo
