The educational reform in Secondary: what’s new in French language teaching?
As part of the comprehensive file dealing with the college student of 2010, this article takes a closer look at teaching French from the perspective of the educational reform in Secondary, based on how teaching personnel from various schools perceive the PFEQ (Programme de formation de l’école québécoise). Mrs. Lemay and Mrs. Tremblay begin by presenting the main differences between the old and the new programs and by shedding light on the impact of the latter on students. Following the article and as a complement to it we present an interview with Mrs. Suzanne Richard, president of the AQPF (Association québécoise des professeurs de français), in which she discusses in greater detail the differences and similarities between the old and new programs with regard to teaching literature in Secondary. The interview also looks at the impact of the reform on teachers’ pedagogical practices as they deal with the new student cohorts.
