2 GENERAL PRINCIPLES The objective of this MOU is to establish the terms of a cooperation concerning the development of a range of joint educational activities in order to: support the teaching, learning, and understanding of our respective languages, cultures and their contributions to history and contemporary issues; promote a better knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of our respective educational systems; provide students, teachers, and other educators and administrators with educational opportunities and resources, both linguistic and cultural, that prepare them for future personal, academic and professional success; and incorporate international dimensions and comparative approaches in teaching, learning, training and research, and the evaluation of these areas. The programs established as a result of this MOU and in both countries apply to all levels of education (preschool through secondary). Alignment with curriculum and current programs in both countries is a prerequisite, with the expectation of maintaining high academic standards for all students involved This agreement is to be maintained in accordance with all state and federal legislation and regulations in each country concerning personnel and students, such as confidentiality and safety. PROGRESS TO DATE ON AREAS OF COOPERATION The basic principles of cooperation between the Académie and OSPI will be implemented through the following means: 1. CONNECTIONS BETWEEN SCHOOLS OSPI and the Académie will create a process for connecting schools and school districts around specific pedagogical projects, sharing resources or findings, creating teaching materials, or other activities covering all subject areas, both academic and non-academic or technical. The individual schools will be responsible for carrying out the projects. Results to Date: Nine partnerships were established between schools in Washington state and Nantes, facilitated by Misa Bourdoiseau of the AATF Northwest (American Association for the Teaching of French). AATF provided a link to an application form on their website: See Appendix B for a list of schools. Some of the projects completed by the schools included: - Connecting for video conferences via Skype - Exchanging s and mail and communicating via Facebook - Exchanging messages with an English teacher in Nantes - Carrying out a penpal exchange - Sending a teacher to Nantes (Marci Bass from the Stillaguamish Valley school in Arlington, a homeschool program) to be hosted by a program at Jules Vernes in Nantes June, 2012 Page 2

3 2. CONNECTIONS BETWEEN EDUCATORS AND ADMINISTRATORS OSPI and the Académie will facilitate meetings or exchanges of teachers and educational administrators intended to improve the quality of education and encourage exchange of information, knowledge and educational expertise of common interest to both parties for the benefit of all. These meetings and exchanges will enable teachers, heads of school, and other personnel of the educational system to improve their skills through training in the state of Washington and the Académie de Nantes. The methods and objectives of such meetings and exchanges remain to be defined. Results to Date: Misa Bourdoiseau (AATF) organized and hosted a meeting of educators from many of the participating schools with the delegation from Nantes on December 6, See Appendix C for pictures and summary. 3. CONNECTIONS BETWEEN STUDENTS OSPI and the Académie will encourage increased proficiency in languages to enable the students to develop intercultural professional experience and abilities and to acquire a better understanding of the world they live in. Results to Date: Both Blanchet High School and North Kitsap High School were able to host students from Nantes during the school year. Northwest School was able to travel with students to France, as was North Kitsap High School. Several other schools are researching the possibility of hosting students from Nantes in their schools in the coming year. LOOKING TO THE FUTURE With the intention of resigning the MOU in 2012, these are some of the areas of future opportunity: Increasing the number of partner schools Hosting a Jules Verne Guest Teacher at one of the schools in Washington Hosting students from Nantes on brief (less than 3-month) visits in Washington Collaborating on professional development for language teachers through webinars on current best practices in language learning and teaching WEBSITES Information about the MOU and opportunities are found at: June, 2012 Page 3

Nous avons passe un week-end tous ensemble (Francais et Americains ) a Nantes. Nous avons etabli un programme solide et les francais vont faire tout leur possible pour venir l'annee scolaire prochaine (probablement en fevrier). Il n'ont pas beaucoup de moyens financiers mais ils vont essayer de frapper a toutes les portes. Nous avons passe 4 jours dans une auberge de jeunesse a Paris a la fin du voyage et avons fait beaucoup de choses...(c'est ma ville!). Grand merci Misa de nous avoir aide a mettre ce projet en route. Telephone-moi si tu veux plus d'informations. ( ). Je suis a Seattle jusqu'a la mi-juillet. Si tu as des idees pour les aider financierement envoie-nous les contacts. Bien amicalement Francoise Bien amicalement RE O avec Nantes To Misa Bourdoiseau From: Haveman, Lola Sent: Sat 6/25/11 6:37 PM To: Misa Bourdoiseau Bonjour Misa, Je suis très contente de tout ce qui s'est passé cette année entre notre lycée (North Kitsap High School) et Lycée Aristide BRIAND à Saint-Nazaire. Nos élèves se sont écrits par , par Facebook, et par lettre presque tous les mois depuis janvier dernier. L'année prochaine nous espérons accueillir nos amis français pendant deux semaines en février, et puis plus tard quand on sera à Paris pour les vacances de printemps on espère passer un jour ou deux à Saint-Nazaire. Bonnes vacances cet été, si vous en avez. Lola June, 2012 Page 12

13 From: To: Subject: RE: MOU with Nantes Date: Wed, 22 Jun :02: Chère Misa, Je m excuse. Ces derniers jours étaient vraiment comblés. Notre communication avec St. arie du port cette année fonctionnait pour le plupart de nous faire connaissance. ne classe d anglais à St. arie du port a envoyé des messages à mes élèves, et ils ont répondu. J ai échangé beaucoup de s avec le directeur adjoint, Olivier Brochard, et j ai expliqué l idée du partenariat à l assemblé de profs à Bishop Blanchet High School, explication suivie d un sondage pour déterminer l intérêt de tout le monde à participer dans l échange, soit de recevoir des élèves français dans leurs cours, soit de développer une leçon avec un professeur français, soit de voyager en France avec nos élèves. Le résultat était assez positif, et notre directrice est d accord de commencer les préparations pour recevoir 30 élèves chez nous en mars ( Et puis mon père est tombé malade, et il est mort il y a six semaines, et mes sœurs et frères et moi ont dû prendre soin, d abord de lui, et après, de ses affaires. Je vais bientôt recommencer mes efforts au sujet de cet échange.) Nos deux lycées comptent à trouver des moyens de communiquer et de travailler ensemble avant l échange. C est un de mes projets pour cet été! À part ça, je viendrai chez vous, merci, ce vendredi. À tout bientôt, Margaret Bonjour Misa! I ended up doing an penpal exchange with Saint Michel school in Annecy. They send their students here every spring through ANDEO and this year I started the exchange with one of their English teachers. We compile our students letters and them to one another. Many of our students have continued to correspond through Facebook. It was a great experience and we plan to start again in the fall with a new group of students. Tina L. Irish French Teacher Decatur High School 2800 SW 320th St. Federal Way, WA (253) June, 2012 Page 13

14 Hi Misa, Tina didn't end up doing the project with us, because we had just the right amount of students here. We set up a pen pal exchange and matched our students up with students at Lycee Jules Verne. Students wrote back and forth on paper and did two exchanges. Next year, I believe we will do it again, probably starting over since we will have different students. We used paper because getting addresses here was very complicated, which we did finally achieve, only to discover that the lycee in France has only one address for the whole lycee. Students enjoyed getting paper letters (it was quite a novelty!), and then often connected with their new friends through facebook or on their own. Thanks for providing us with this opportunity! Meghan Schumacher, Federal Way Public Schools Subject: RE: Partenariat ( MOU) avec Nantes- reunion 6 decembre 2011 Date: Fri, 2 Dec :13: From: To: CC: Greetings Misa: I have been working with Francis Bogue at Lycée Jean Moulin. We started by having students blog basic introduction information. My French students wrote in French and his students wrote in English. We gave each other pointers on colloquial American and French vocabulary and structures. Last year we also created a joint web pages based on a current issues. American students also created personal web pages. This year we have a number of projects in the works. Currently, we have sent introductions and the students in Angers have begun to create personal pages with blogs so students can comment and make suggestions for their work. I ve been a bit behind due to technical difficulties but I hope to have all of my English 10 students involved this year as well as my French language students. We also hope to publish student critical work on poetry and literature to open a dialogue about literature and arts. We will be revisiting our current issues assignments as well as sketches or dialogues of social situations. Currently, Francis is facilitating one of his students coming here to Okanogan for a three month stay in the spring. I have gotten the approval of my principal and I m currently working on a home stay situation. I hope to send a student to Angers next year but finances are the key obstacle in our impoverished area.

15 From Bishop Blanchet High School Bishop Blanchet has had the honor and joy over ten days time of welcoming 31 students, three teachers, and the principal from St. ary of the Port, a Catholic school in Les Sables d Olonne, France. 31 Bishop Blanchet families have opened their doors to give the French students a true immersion experience of Green-and-Gold hospitality. The French students share the life of their American hosts, going to classes with them and attending after-school activities. Our French guests are fascinated by our rich array of choices for extra-curricular participation. They ve watched play rehearsals, attended soft-ball practices, watched games and track meets, seen the choirs, the band, and the orchestra in operation. They ve compared notes, to find that each BBHS student s day is unique in some way. Mr. Michael Pierce picked up the French group from the airport in royal fashion Monday evening, arch 26, providing them with a big yellow bus, shining like a chariot, Bishop Blanchet emblazoned in big green letters on the side. Their BBHS host families streamed from the school to meet them upon arrival, matched up students, and hurried them along to what would be their home for the next ten days. Principal Kris Brynildsen-Smith welcomed the exchange students at an after-school party at the end of their first full day at BBHS. American and French students have quickly formed new friendships. Differences in language and culture turn into occasions for education and personal growth. With little effort, language skills grow and communication deepens. Nothing printed in a textbook or even recorded in the best inter-active language program can compare to actual person-to-person experience throughout the full expanse of everyday routines. In class, the French students learn firsthand the differences between their school day and ours, but they and we also discover the common human traits that provide great hope for future understanding and will work to dissolve walls of prejudice. Thanks in large part to parent help and generosity, the French students have spent their afternoons exploring Seattle history, arts, culture, and technology. Ed Foster and Mike Henshew led the group on tours of downtown Seattle, Seattle Center, the EMP, Pike Place Market, and on a ferry ride to Bainbridge. Blanchet teachers have taken the group by bus to Carkeek Park and to the Boeing Factory in Everett. Each host family has individually provided rich experiences for its guest, including a wide variety of local opportunities. Principal Dominique Duhamel of Sainte Marie du Port looks forward to welcoming our BBHS students to Les Sables d Olonne next spring, opening the bridge between our sister schools and making the big world just a little smaller.

16 Sister Schools: Nantes and Bellevue For fourteen years the private school St. Stanislas in Nantes and the International School in Bellevue have been cultivating a solid sisterhood/exchange program that has become a unique distinction and attraction for our schools overall. This relationship has certainly evolved over the years, but as teachers, students, and the program have changed, the foundation has remained strong and the bene-fits continue to grow. Now that we have an official relation-ship through our respective governments, we can also antici-pate more support in developing greater potential in our cross-continental relationships. Every year twenty-four students from Nantes and twenty-four students from Bellevue embark on a year-long adventure that fuels anticipation and excitement, contagious to all the students, staff, and families around them as whole communities play integral roles in the success of the program. By late fall the students have been carefully matched by the concerted efforts of the teachers at each school. From the moment students receive the name and contact infor-mation of their correspondents there is a flurry of exuberance as they exchange introductions, stories, shared interests, and photos via the Internet, now mostly Facebook. Suddenly twenty-four students along with their friends and families in America are curiously inquiring about twentyfour students in France and vice versa. Whole French classes are just as worked up about meeting the Frenchies as the lucky twenty-four students, planning adventures in which everyone can participate, reading their letters and collaborating on their correspondence. Since the Americans write in French and the French correspond in English, stories circulate frequently about what the French students write, for example, I hate to see you! (The direct translation J ai hâte de te voir!) We can only imagine the awkward translations on the other end! International School is first up for the three-week hosting experience beginning in late January, so our students do all they can to create the most memorable stay possible in winter with the intent to foster a long-term reciprocal rela-tionship. Of course the families are an integral part; the parents exchange s with each other and help orchestrate activities. Everyone wants to be gracious as hosts to cultivate a strong, trusting relationship in both countries so that all students have an enduring positive impression. Inevitably, the three-week stay ends too soon for everyone, but the anticipation for our trip in the spring is like an electric charge in our twentyfour students. Six weeks later we are off to France! Over the three weeks, one week is spent exploring and discovering as much as feasible, making the language and culture students have studied for years come vibrantly alive. But without fail, what the students find to be the definitive denouement is the two-week family stay. In these two weeks, we teachers become celebrities at the school as teachers and students alike rave about the American students. Everyone is impressed by their French speaking, touched by their enthusiasm and intrigued by their differences and similarities to themselves. Our students have the unique privilege of living as members of French families; from the meals to the bathrooms at home to the social life and school life; they see the world in a whole new way. When the time comes to leave our dear friends, not even the most stoic student can refrain from an emotional goodbye. This is a moment of profound joy for the teachers; to witness students living the target language and culture in a real-life friendship across continents. It is impossible to imagine a more relevant culmination of our students learning. Yet the potential is increasingly boundless. Following our own discoveries as teachers/learners in technology, such as the myriad of opportunities presented in the WAFLT/COFLT conference June, 2012 Page 16

17 only weeks ago, there seems to be no limit in possibilities to nurture student engagement and relevancy in the curriculum. While this may occasionally seem daunting and overwhelming, it is tremendously exciting to make learning more alive than it ever was for us in school. Most teachers today, as younger learners, used books to learn about francophone countries and cultures; today we can catch up-to-date news from Senegal, listen to the latest music happening in Martinique, and even drive vicariously St. Stanislas hosts a community gala dinner to welcome us to Nantes.
