UMFK students from Professor Katharine Harrington’s Teaching of French course recently completed a month-long French after school program "Fun with the French Language" at Fort Kent Elementary School. A weekly hour-long after school French class was taught by three different groups of students and offered to FKES students in grades 2 through 4. The program was based around the theme of "à la ferme" or "on the farm" and Harrington’s students were entirely responsible for creating the curriculum for their respective group. Taught entirely in French, the interactive activities in the after school program included basic conversation, reading, songs, games and arts & crafts.
