The FLENJ minigrant program provides financial assistance to support unique and creative initiatives that will have a direct impact on the development of language skills and cultural understanding in the classroom. We are proud to announce the winners for 2013:
Michele Schreiner of Egg Harbor Township High School created a program called French Art Jigsaw for which she purchased iPad minis. In groups, students used the iPads to research a type of artwork and then teach members of other groups about the type of art they studied and to make comparisons.
Christine Berg, a French teacher in Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School, also used her grant to purchase iPad minis. Students used the iPads to research topics that require them to use critical thinking and solution fluency as they define problems, research issues, and present information that reflects the perspectives of the target culture.
FLENJ is pleased to be able to reward the initiatives of our members and to provide much needed assets for the purchase of materials that enhance the world language programs in New Jersey schools. Congratulations to all of the recipients!
