We met Dang Truong, welcoming class teacher at the École Terre-des-Jeunes of the CSMB. He talks to us about educational differentiation, technology, patience and resilience, powerful levers for supporting children in their linguistic, social and educational integration.

In the reception class, the starting point for learning French is different from one student to another. Communication also takes place through means other than language, in particular through gestures, non-verbal communication and images. In this interview, Dang explains that to function during a school year, he can create subgroups and develop several separate plans. This ensures that each student can learn at a level that suits them.

Although he initially taught in a more traditional way, the arrival of digital technologies in his school caused Dang to adjust his pedagogy. Today, he uses technology as a universal language that he can use right from the start to communicate with his students.

Start from own experience

When Dang himself arrived in Quebec in 1983, more precisely in Amos in Abitibi, there was no reception class. It was after having gone through a year of virtual silence that he gradually began to express himself in French. The experience he lived, combined with the skills acquired at university, now helps him to better support his students.

We invite you to listen to the interview, shot on the occasion of CréaCamp Montreal on November 1, 2018, to discover how Dang adopts the growth mentality to develop his students.
