Summary

A collection of student, class, and school foreign language activities suggests a variety of projects and describes three specific school efforts. The suggested activities include: (1) individual student efforts such as writing to pen-pals; (2) group activities such as a foreign language auction or sing-along; (3) group projects for the school such as exhibits; (4) student involvement with the community in assembly programs; (5) essay, photo, or poster contests; (6) activities with teacher involvement such as field trips or faculty foreign language courses; (7) interdisciplinary, school-wide activities such as foreign coin study in mathematics classes or immigration study in social studies; (8) school-wide foreign language projects such as a cookbook or cooking demonstration; (9) community involvement such as store window displays featuring a foreign country, or radio or television announcements of foreign language cultural events; (10) foreign language services in the community such as visits or performances at local service organizations, or displays at libraries or community centers; (11) government involvement such as letters to government agencies concerning the importance of foreign languages, or a request for an official's endorsement of language learning; and (12) career-related activities such as field trips to see foreign languages used on the job. The three specific activities highlighted include a university's French fair, a junior high school's Latin American evening, and a high school's language Olympics. (MSE)
