The French Review
This article describes a project undertaken by a small group of advanced students in a French medieval literature class. The course used a project-based approach to teaching a canonical medieval text by asking students to produce a live performance of a medieval mystery play, Le jeu d’Adam. The article details unique features of the project, explains how those features address the main goals of Project- Based Learning, and draws conclusions about its potential for enhancing student learning and strengthening university language programs in a changing curricular landscape, all in the context of ACTFL’s Standards for Foreign Language Learning.
