The course, taught in French, is geared to students with an intermediate level knowledge of French. It will give an outline of important dates in the period, present key figures of the era, the way of life, art, such as the chateaux de la Loire, literature, and music. Much of this will be accomplished through the use of pictures, and music from the Internet or PowerPoint presentations. Throughout the course, each participant will choose an important figure, a king, a peasant, a noble woman, an artist, among others, and tell us what they imagine their thoughts, fears, and hopes were at the historical time they were living. Students must have access to a good Internet connection. Lecture (plus questions). Facilitated Discussion. Listening to Music and Other Audio. Viewing Videos.
