Spotlight on Learning:  Differentiation in French Immersion

Although students may be in the same grade, French immersion students are seldom at the same level. Therefore, a differentiated approach is essential for them to continue building on their skills, and confidence. Using the application ‘Les dictées d’Archibald’, students can choose their own profile, work at their own pace, and at their own level, to increase their vocabulary and refine their listening and writing skills.  “I think it helps a lot with speaking and listening and then being able to write words out. It also helps a lot with spelling because of the ability to look at your mistakes and fix them and then double check that you did it correctly.” Atticus Brummitt, grade 10
