|Chapter title||Reflections on a French linguistics co-creation project|
|Editors||de Medeiros, A.A. and Kelly, D.|
The following contribution is connected to a larger study – the Linguistics in Modern Foreign Languages Project (www.linguisticsinmfl.co.uk) – which investigates the potential to include Linguistics as a component of language teaching in British schools. It is based on the experience of working on a collaborative project between a number of universities and schools, which is funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council’s Open World Research Initiative, Language Acts and Worldmaking. The materials developed for this co-creation project were tailored to fit topics from the existing French A-Level (or ‘Advanced Level’, post-16 school-leaving qualification), but they take a novel approach built around linguistic analysis. Here, two academics and two teachers involved in the project reflect on how this collaboration has informed their views of what constitutes ‘French’, and how it has impacted on their own teaching and research.
