For the academic year 2013-14, LFIB implemented a new course called WORKSHOP, thereby replacing LECTEUR in order to better accommodate and further the French curriculum’s "Le Socle Commun", the common core and thus the academic year’s objective with respect to

– proficiency in a modern foreign language
– social and civic skills
– autonomy and initiative

Workshop courses start in 6e and are continued throughout and to 2nde with a progression in particular skill sets, thereby allowing students to gradually develop their knowledge and confidence when speaking in public. Three English teachers are currently sharing their experiences and strengths in teaching various topics. The ongoing term 1 is entirely based on drama skills. At the end of the term, 6e to 3e will perform for the other students in their respective classes. 2nde is meant to perform for a larger audience, i.e. parents, peers etc. During the course, students also learn about specific drama related terminology, how to materialize emotions and body language, and other skills e.g. improvisation and miming.
Term 2 will encompass the students’ debate and public speaking skills more directly and individually. Correct breathing while speaking and posture when standing before an audience will help students become more aware of their audience’s perception and consequently strengthen their own confidence.
Term 3 will be a more technical approach to express their aptitude by means of modern media, a video or audio project.

Specific topics per level are:
Short Comedy skit, rewritten and performed by all students, currently rehearsals are ongoing, props and costumes to be finalized
Fairy tales, students have created a modern version, memorize and perform it, rehearsals ongoing, final stage at the end of term
10-min plays are to be memorized and performed by students, rehearsals ongoing, monologues supplement students who have less than 10 lines to speak
A rendition of “12 Angry Men”, 3 groups 3 acts, rehearsals ongoing
6 scenes of “Romeo & Juliet” rewritten as a modern or abstract version and performed in front of an audience.
I am using 2-min monologues in various lengths to make up for number of lines spoken/acted.
