When I was planning with my colleagues last summer we decided that we would do an Amazing Race competition for one of our level 3 and 4 units. We had all kinds of great ideas and we planned for hours to make what we thought was a great project, but when we put it into practice it was a major flop. I was ready to give up and throw in the towel second semester because I could not come up with a way to make the assignment interactive, engaging and easy to keep track of. One day my husband came to the rescue when he sent me a link to the blog Ditch That Textbook which is FULL of Google Apps for Education resources that can be used in a variety of ways, one of which is using Google Forms, Slides and Maps to create an interactive, self-run Amazing Race project. Hallelujah! You can see the post here, but this is what I ended up with.

Welcome to my blog where I share tips that I have learned as a young teacher with little to no resources seeking to create a relevant, rigorous French curriculum.

My name is Mme Probst and I am a French teacher who, after years of struggling to find resources without a text, decided to share my resources with the world so that other teachers didn't have to do the same.
