Attend this workshop to develop your french immersion collection so your students can have "windows, mirrors and sliding glass doors" (Bishop, 2015). In this workshop we will share french immersion resources that are culturally and socially diverse and the appropriate grade levels. We will also discuss resources which have a francophone author and those that are translated. Primary focus is on resources for elementary french immersion.
