As Director of French Language Instruction, Hannelore Jarausch is most interested in how students learn a language and what will motivate them to continue their study of French. After beginning her career focused largely on literature, her attention has turned to language pedagogy. She works closely with our graduate instructors, co-teaching our methods course, observing classes and guiding developing teachers. To put her work in language teaching into broader practice, she has co-authored two college-level textbooks, presents regularly at the meetings of the Foreign Language Association of North Carolina as well as at those of the American Council on Teaching Foreign Languages. Since she was fortunate enough to have two terms as resident director for our program in Montpellier, encouraging students to study abroad is also an important goal. Jarausch regularly directs Senior Honors Theses which allows her to return to her continuing love for literature and work with some of our amazing graduating majors and double majors.
