The internship research project focuses on the professional development needs of elementary Core French Teachers currently employed in Newfoundland and Labrador. A needs analysis was conducted in the form of a self-report questionnaire to identify professional development issues which should be investigated and addressed by the Department of Education, school district boards, the professional association and teaching staff. -- The primary conclusions realized upon completion of this project are that a need exists for professional development activities for elementary Core French teachers in this province, and that these needs relate both to teacher proficiency in French and to methodological issues. -- The recommendations of Chapter Five, which have their foundation in the literature reviewed and in the data collected, attempt to address the principal conclusions of the project. In addition, the recommendations are meant to include all of the partners in education so that they may work together to enhance the practices of the current teaching force with the aim of improving the Core French education of the province's elementary students.
