[Saturday Seminars Coordinator's Report.] Seminars for Interested Students, Experimental Project, Department of Education, Planning and Research, June 15, 1973.
Fillion, Origene
Seminars were developed to give francophone students in rural areas intellectual stimulation and experience outside their normal study programs. The aim was to develop French education and to promote French culture for these secondary students. Subject areas were psychology, sociology, and comparative religion. Sixty-one students in grades 10, 11, and 12 from 5 school divisions in Manitoba participated. The seminars were conducted on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. till noon. The participants evaluated the seminars by (1) writing their reactions to the first sessions and (2) completing an evaluation questionnaire after the ninth session. Parents were also given an evaluation questionnaire. The overall student reaction was extremely positive and parents were satisfied. Some of the recommendations were: more dialogue should be included; the seminars should be extended to 1:30 p.m.; local administrations should participate more actively in diffusing information to students; and the project should be continued.
