Mise en scene: Cinema et lecture uniquely motivates students to build and practice their French language skills through the study of film by balancing attention to content, culture, and communication. Using authentic films and readings created for French-speaking audiences, Mise en scene guides students to expand their capacity to use French as they engage independently with these materials and interactively with fellow students and native speakers.

About the author (2005)

Cheryl Krueger is associate professor of French at the University of Virginia, where she teaches courses on French language, literature, culture, and cinema. She is editor of Dix-Neuf, (Journal of the Society of Dix-neuviemistes), and has served on the AAUSC editorial board. Krueger is an elected member of the MLA's Nineteenth-Century French Literature Division Executive Committee. She is author of The Art of Procrastination: Baudelaire's Poetry in Prose (University of Delaware, 2007), and editor of Approaches to Teaching Baudelaire's Prose Poems (MLA, 2016). Professor Krueger is co-author of Mise-en-scene: Cinema et Lecture. Her articles have appeared in journals including: Dix-Neuf, French Forum, Foreign Language Annals, Literature/Film Quarterly, Modern Languages Open, NCFS, Romance Notes, and Women in French Studies. Her current research focuses on olfaction, perfume and smell culture, in relation to 19th-century French fiction. Krueger teaches a variety of courses in the undergraduate major, the MA, and PhD program. Her interest in helping students find their voice in French developed over the many years she served as Language Program Director at UVA. Her approach to teaching writing is informed by a combination of research in SLA and plenty of practice experimenting with new techniques and course design. While Taches d'encre is carefully designed to reach students who have completed approximately two years of French, she advocates the book's interactive, process-writing or writers at any level, from students just beginning to professionals writing for publication.
