I have been teaching language and culture in the US since 2002, experiencing a variety of different academic settings. What I find in all language students, beyond their cultural background and their ultimate academic goal, is the desire to engage and to play with new languages. I have found that bringing to class elements of culture, literature, film, theater and authentic readings, makes the learning experience meaningful and deep. I have researched and published on the use of film in the language class and I am working on a project considering the approach to the literary and cinematic texts from a multiple intelligence perspective. I am committed to bringing social media and new technologies into the learning environment, and extending the class community beyond the classroom walls. At Dartmouth I direct the French and Italian Language Program.
