Inquiry: Where can we find francophone culture and community in our own city?

Students would be asked to use their inquiry and research skills to find francophone establishments, organizations and celebrations in Toronto. Students would then summarize their findings on a Wiki page. They would also be required to create a map using Google Tour Builder [1] as an accompanying visual representation of where french language, culture and community exists in Toronto.

The purpose of this inquiry-based learning project is to create a practical resource students can use to access French language, culture and community in their own city. It is important for FSL students to understand that French isn't just a language spoken in places labeled as "other" such as France and Québec. Toronto has a very active Francophone community as well! When students understand this, french language learning becomes much more relevant to them.
