Letter for Host Teacher and Principal

Dear Host Teacher,

__________________________________ is presently enrolled in the course EDUC 1515, French as a Second Language Part 1, offered at Nipissing University. An essential component of this course is a practicum in which candidates are required to gain experience in an FSL classroom setting where they may observe, plan and teach the FSL curriculum. The intent of this practicum is to familiarize the candidate with the characteristics and needs of FSL learners, and to incorporate second language strategies into their teaching. With your support and guidance as a teacher/

mentor, we hope that candidates will benefit greatly from this learning opportunity.

We appreciate your willingness to welcome this teacher into your classroom. We hope that the experience of sharing your expertise and having an extra pair of hands in the class will be mutually beneficial. As the Dean of Education, I invite you to contact me if any questions arise during the practicum.
