JE PARLE TRES BIEN FRANCAIS ET VOUS? - I AM HERE- Washington DC

Methodology

I believe it is more pragmatic and efficient to explain the rules for an activity or game in English, perhaps after an explanation in the target language. One thing the behaviourists taught us is that repetition, drilling and controlled practice are useful weapons in a teacher’s armoury.

Background

I graduated from GWU Law School with a Master of Laws along with an MBA, I have a Bachelor in Law , coursework entirely taken in French, with more than 15 years of onsite and online french teaching experience.

Dear Mum/Sir.
I am writing to apply for the Part-Time French Teacher position , I am very excited about the prospect of working at your school, teaching a diverse group of students and focusing my time and energy towards mentoring adult learners, collaborating with colleagues, and developing innovative, effective courses. In the last fifteen years, I have designed and taught many introductory and in-depth French, Law, Communication composition and literature classes, and I have experience teaching students from many different cultural backgrounds, including adult learners and students who possess a wide range of writing abilities. I have always been passionate about reading and writing, and I bring that energy into the classroom, encouraging my students to see each step of the writing process as a dynamic way to develop their ideas and to express their individual strengths. My classes are designed with diverse groups of students in mind because they draw on students’ own experiences as sources for conversation, writing, and research. These classes become more successful as student diversity increases because both the students and I are presented with a more vivid array of life experiences and knowledge. In my composition classes, for example, the first major research paper is an autoethnography, which allows students to develop their own voice and sense of authority by asking them to write about their own culture—a subject on which they are experts. I then ask them to expand their cultural conversations by doing research on elements related to their lives and aspirations. In my literature classes, students contribute their own poetry or poetry that they love to the class so that they can understand how their voices interact with the poets that we read. We have both daily poetry readings and a larger, more formal reading at the end of the year. Because writing is a critical skill for all students to learn in order to succeed, I concentrate on helping students to develop individual writing goals and then adapt our class goals accordingly. I approach student writing on many levels by addressing both sentence-level and global issues. I believe that by providing students with a better understanding of structural grammar, we give them fuller access to many institutions, including their academic and professional lives. I also value creative ideas or viewpoints, especially when these ideas encourage responses from the rest of the class. By placing students in smaller groups with students from other national backgrounds, I encourage all students to share their expertise and to learn from one another. I believe that the most effective, energetic literature classes engage with local artists and contexts. Since many of my students come from West African, my poetry classes always begin with readings of poets such as Amadou Hampathe Bah (Mali) Chinua Achebe (Things fall apart) and Camara Laye (L’Enfant noir-Guinea). I would be very excited to design classes for your language school that focus on your client’s goals. In my literature classes, I draw on a diversity of sources to call attention to the richness and variety of poetry and American literature. In my current class, we have discussed how W.E.B. Du Bois’s concept of double-consciousness can apply to both slave narratives and spoken. My classes focus on different learning styles by encouraging students to draw or free write when they are confused; these activities not only give students better access to literature, but they also encourage them to think about reading as a sensory, even tactile experience that can relate immediately to their own lives. I am interested in online teaching, and I have already used many online learning tools in my classroom, including course management software system such as Moodle and Compass, which allow students to access course material and grades at any time, to interact with one another through discussion questions and blog posts, and to collaborate on projects and share writing ideas. I often hold “virtual office hours” with students over chat programs or Skype, especially when they are struggling with research or utilizing library resources. In my work as an editor, I have employed live sessions using screen sharing so that I can show clients my editing style in “real time.” I look forward to designing and teaching online courses in the future. Teaching is the highlight of my day. It inspires and energizes me, and I want to devote my time to working with students and helping them to develop, express, and exchange their ideas. I am inspired by your mission to extend educational opportunities to students from diverse backgrounds, including first generation college students, ESL and international students, and students with a wide range of educational experiences and goals. I would be honored to be part of the process of making college more accessible and manageable for all students. I look forward to returning to teach at Fluent City.

Modibo Dembele
