About the Session:

French teachers from each district/division will work collaboratively to aid in the creation of Indigenous Kits in the French language (similar to the ones developed in English).  Development of concept based lessons to broaden the scope of the kits will also be worked on as time permits. 

Once translation and lesson development have been completed, the kits will be assembled for use on a mutually agreed upon future date.
