National French Week 2023: November 1-8, 2023
Theme: All around me, la francophonie!
The AATF is pleased to announce its organization of the twenty-first annual National French Week. This week-long celebration of all things French will take place in schools and communities and AATF chapters across the U.S. from November 1-8, 2023. We ask members and any other interested Francophones and Francophiles to take French out of the classroom and demonstrate all the reasons to learn French.
We have identified major themes for each day of National French Week, and we encourage teachers to celebrate as many of them as possible.
- Science, Technology, and Careers
- The Arts and Arts and Crafts
- Community Events
- Sports, Games, and Traditions
- Music and Dance
We encourage you to consult the index of the National Bulletin for Small Grant Reports and témoignages regarding success National French Week activities.
Teachers can choose the best time and day to hold the Trivia Contest, most likely during class time with their students, between 6:00 am CST on Wednesday, November 1st and 5:00 pm CST on Friday, November 10th, 2023 (dates may be adjusted slightly in the upcoming weeks). Your students play in class using the online platform Kahoot! Questions are about the Francophone world and are in English. This contest is for students in grades 6-12 and undergraduate university.
