Developing oral language
in primary school classes
Aurélia Onyszko is a co-author, along with Anne Larcher, Evie Laversanne, Adeline Michel and Séverine Walker, of the book entitled ‘Enseigner en Classe Flexible’ (Teaching in a Flexible classroom), published by Éditions Retz. She is also the owner of the ‘Maitresse Aurel‘ blog, via which she shares her thoughts, ideas, knowledge, and creations so that they can be useful to other education professionals.
Favouring inclusion in schools
Aurélia Onyszko has been teaching in a French P1 classroom for the past three years. She has occupied a wide range of different positions in the past, from the Special General and Vocational Education Section, to a multi-level classroom, and even headmistress. Ultimately, she has chosen to stay with P1 because it is a level which fascinates her and represents a crucial phase in a child’s schooling and development. She works in a school where certain pupils have just arrived in France and for whom French is not their native language (also referred to as an allophone). Along with the 25 students that comprise her class, she also welcomes children from her school’s ‘Localized Units for School Inclusion’ program for reading and writing lessons.
