Video game in the FLRC

How did you pick this theme or topic?

I was supposed to go with the students to the tea that the French department had organized in Mason, but it was postponed. I only heard of it the very morning so I didn’t have time to prepare a lesson for the afternoon. I also thought it would be good for them to do something else and still practice their French.

How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)

Video game

How did students react?

They reacted very well and enjoyed the game, they even stayed longer than needed before they wanted to finish it (they played twice)

Did they engage with each other and you?

Yes, they were reacting in French and talking about their good or bad performances, and also about the questions.

What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)

Playstation 3
