gym class in autun, france 2007-05-21
After college, I spent a year in France as an English teaching assistant. It was a wonderful, eye-opening experience. While I was there, I did a small photo documentary of the French schools and their methods of teaching. This photo was taken during pre-school gym class. Each week, an entire afternoon was dedicated to teaching the elementary school children about physical fitness. In this photo, the pre-schoolers were learning to play together by pulling each other around on little scooters.
