When the Dynamique Duo of the French Department, Ms. Crowley and Mr. Porzadny, sat down to discuss what innovative/interactive/’make your colleagues’ classes look boring in comparison’ lesson plans they could come up with for Transition Year this term, short courses on ‘Great French Military Victories’ and ‘Parisian Metro Manners’ were mooted, but in the end they went with what we know the French really are best at: cooking.
And so was born Master Chef Français! And so, Ms. Crowley and Chefs Mark and Emerson recently led the Transition Years through two gruelling rounds of their Master Chef competition. No, ‘gruel’ was not actually on the menu but innovative versions of pizzas, omelettes, pancakes, salad and croquettes were! And it is not over yet: stay tuned for le grand finale!
