Outcomes expected for the participants – Enhancement of the learning of French through a cultural and fun learning experience

– Getting acquainted with different skills and meeting other educational needs through integration with the French: physical exercise, creativity and improvisation, different customs, good nutrition, instrument playing, singing, acting, etc. are all part of the learning experience as the themes of the songs are developed.

Evidence that outcomes were achieved Outcomes are evident as achieved in different ways during the presentation
– Voluntary and individual creative participation in gymnastics, dance improvisations, firm percussion, instrument playing, singing and gestures- Students with special needs are discretely favored to come up front and participate in activities (with their teacher if required)

– Creative individual and group activities are performed

– Individuals with a particular talent or interest voluntarily use their ability in the activities suggested by the themes

– Students collectively repeat French words placing the accents on proper syllables and are made aware of the similarity of words with the English language

– The musical performance with all the interactive themes result in a high level of student interest and motivation

– Crowd control is evident as the students are eager to go back to their designated places after each group activity

– Staff are visibly satisfied with the outcomes.

Strategies employed to meet the expectations in the presentations Pre-presentation activity : Song video preps on my web site: https://www.edmicha.com

Audience participation : each song (educational theme) is supported with visual props and accompanied by acting and student participation as the themes suggest (for example , with the song Frappe le temps some musical instruments are used by the students)

Post- presentation activity:

Activities available from the web site www.edmicha.com (free of charge) can be used as a follow-up to the shows as well.

I have successfully toured Canada for the past 35 years, using mainly a word of mouth referral system that is for me expedient and economical, thus allowing me to offer an acceptable Presentation cost. This system has also allowed me, with time, to be on the list of presenters of various Canadian provinces.
