Ministry: French students with special needs

December 17, 2015 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

The Ministry has released a new resource supporting the French language curriculum, titled Including students with special education needs in French as a second language programs: A guide for Ontario Schools.

It is hard enough to find resources on teaching French, let alone French students with special needs.

I took a quick look and the Ebsco journal databases included 3 fairly recent articles:

  1. Joy, R., & Murphy, E. (2012). The inclusion of children with special educational needs in an intensive French as a second language program: From theory to practice. Canadian Journal of Education, 35(1), 102-119.
  2. Arnett, K. (2010). Scaffolding instruction in a grade 8 core French classroom: An exploratory case study. Canadian Modern Language Review, 66(4), 557-582.  Request email copy from Professional Library.
  3. Mady, C., & Arnett, K. (2009). Inclusion in French Immersion in Canada: One parent’s perspective. Exceptionality Education International, 19(2), p37-49.

For other Canadian resources supporting French Immersion (not necessarily spec ed and French), check out EduGains and Curriculum Services Canada .
