Are you a high school French teacher who has not yet explored the Télé-Québec platform in the classroom? Here are 6 reasons why you should start using it with your students today. 

"How can we help young people progress in learning French? How can we help them create Quebec cultural references outside the main social networks? With Télé-Québec en classe, French teachers have access to a world of possibilities. We offer them resources to help engage their students, as well as inspiring pedagogical activities to develop writing and oral communication skills," says Isabelle Grégoire, editor-in-chief of Télé-Québec en classe.

1- Resources relevant to the program

The contents proposed on the platform all have an educational value. They are carefully selected for their relevance to the Quebec school curriculum. It is therefore easy to create links with many elements of the curriculum. It is even possible to use the search engine to specifically look for concepts in the program: lexicon and spelling, agreement and conjugation, syntax and punctuation, organization and coherence of the text, genres of texts, etc. 

Some examples: 

  • Free zone This program offers a variety of examples to analyze argumentation in oral speeches.  
  • Lis T' Classiques This web series invites you to discover 10 classics of Quebec literature. 
  • Atalukan This podcast offers 6 encounters with Aboriginal storytellers with prolific imagination and faithful memory. 
  • Spread the word and Dis-moi pas, the little story of words from here Two series of short capsules that allow you to enrich your vocabulary, but especially to learn more about the etymology of words and expressions typical of the French language in Quebec. 

Moreover, the content is diversified. There are short video segments, longer ones, documentaries, short films and podcasts.

2- Current quality content

In addition to being educational, the proposed content is all likely to reach young people in their tastes and interests. Many of the videos are offered in short format rather than in full-length programs in order to encourage discovery and capture their attention. There is enough to make them want to consume more Quebec content!

In order to please them more and to allow them to learn while having fun, some series are created especially for them and made available exclusively on the platform. This is notably the case of the series The beginning of the fortsduring education complementary to the program The end of the weak (presented on Télé-Québec and available on Télé-Québec en classe), and SLAM!respectively dedicated to rap and slam writing.

Don't forget to come back often to Télé-Québec in class, as new content is added regularly. 

3- Various themes

To help teachers identify relevant content more easily, the Télé-Québec en classe team offers thematic lists. The content proposed in the lists can also be filtered according to grade level, program, subject or duration.  

Some examples of lists related to the teaching of French : 

  • Writing, reading, communicating (perfect for reviewing certain concepts!) 
  • The theater 
  • The novel 
  • The poetry 
  • The comic strip 
  • Documentaries to discover 
  • Aboriginal Stories, Literature and Tales 
  • The French language in the spotlight 
  • Book Club 
  • French expressions 

4- Turnkey resources

Some of the content is offered with pedagogical guides and inspiration to help teachers use the material in the classroom with their students. These guides are created in collaboration with school professionals and are linked to effective practices.

This is particularly true of the following series The beginning of the forts and SLAM!

This is also the case for : 

  • We talk about sex A web series that addresses a host of topics around the theme of sexuality that concern teens or pique their curiosity. With a general pedagogical guide for the series as well as more specific guides for certain themes, created in collaboration with Tania St-Laurent, sexologist.  
  • The booksellers fall for... Booktubes: Booksellers present 7 booktubes with different themes. In addition to discovering reading suggestions, these capsules offer examples of what constitutes the essence of the booktube: vivacity, contagious passion and quality advice. 

5- A powerful search engine

Teachers can explore the rich bank of content using the search engine. The search engine allows them to find content according to keywords, grade levels, reading lists, subjects, formats, etc.

Teachers can also quickly find their favorite content by saving it in their favorites, which can even be organized by creating personalized lists.

Tip: For even more discoveries, you should definitely explore a page all the way to the bottom to see the related content offered. (Like: You liked this, so you might like that!) 

6- Everything is free and without advertising

All of Télé-Québec en classe's content is free of advertising and completely free of charge for teachers, education professionals, and students in the public and private school systems at the preschool, elementary, secondary, adult general education and vocational training levels.

To access it, you simply create an account with a school email address provided by an institution or service center. The creation process is very simple and intuitive. Teachers and their students are invited to create an account to begin their exploration.
