CAP SUR… and the 5 Cs

Communication

Communication is at the core of CAP SUR…’s pedagogical approach. The ultimate goal is for students to acquire communication skills, and CAP SUR… exposes students to real-life experiences that practice the three modes of communication: interpersonal, interpretative, and presentational.

Culture

Culture from around the French-speaking world is presented across the units. The family depicted in a continuing story reflects the diversity of Francophone countries and cultures. The father is Parisian and the mother is from Guadeloupe.

In the story, the family takes a trip during which they explore different French-speaking places and discover unique aspects of their cultures. Reflections on interculturality are a feature of each unit. This cross-cultural focus helps students become open-minded learners who make connections with other communities.

Connections

Students make connections with other academic disciplines and reinforce what they have learned. Mathematics, art, music, social studies, and science, and other subjects are all part of children’s experience when they learn French with CAP SUR…

Comparisons

The Cousteau family and friends introduce children to the diversity of the French-speaking world. Through these experiences, children develop a deeper understanding of their own culture and language while learning to value different French-speaking cultures and the variety within the French language itself.

Communities

CAP SUR… has been created for learners who will be part of multilingual and multicultural communities in a global society. Because of this, CAP SUR… offers activities that connect language learners with the world outside of the classroom.
