UTELLSTORY: Tell me about your travel experiences!
The project uses Utellstory.com as its main creative tool in order to enhance learning.
It consists of several speaking and writing activities centered around the "travel theme". It is intended for students in their second semester of first-year French or at the novice-mid level on the ACTFL proficiency benchmark. It is created based on a multiliteracies pedagogical approach.
UtellStory is a multimedia storytelling and sharing community where one can easily create and share stories with audios, images, videos, and words.
This in-class activity guides students through the process of planning an imaginary vacation in France, using the home exchange website Abritel. Students explore Abritel's various vacation housing options, including beachside cottages, chalets, or even rooms in private castles. Using a worksheet, students complete a variety of tasks, describing the location they chose, and imagining what they will do during their holiday.
