I selected authentic articles dealing with current affairs/issues in France following the A Level textbook (Edexcel) guidelines. In this booklet you will find 3 articles with an exam style questions for each article! As they are authentic, they are challenging and I use them mostly for homework asking students to search new vocabulary (vocabulary highlighted in yellow needs to be searched by students before having a go at answering questions) The answers are given, you will have to remove the “(v)” that shows where the correct answers are before printing this file for your students. There is also a box where they can write (in English or in French) facts they have learned from these articles (as this could be used for their speaking exams). Reading authentic articles will also train them for their IRP

Escape Room activity - French Revolution

Escape Room activity - French Revolution

This was a very low tech escape room activity. I printed off slides 1 (key words), slides 4-7 for students (2 slides per page!). The locations are on the final slide. I hid the first code cracker under a beret on an unused desk, the next clue under a guillotine by our fire exit and the third (pair of codes) under a toy crown on my classroom shelves. As I didn’t have a suitable box I could padlock, I used a cardboard wallet, holepunched it and put the padlocks through the holes on there. I used one padlock with a 3 digit code (187 - slide 8 for the questions) and a key padlock. On the wallet, I wrote in French that they had to prove to me they had complete all activities. I gave prizes to the students to open the padlock first. I did this with an able Y10 group (small class) and it took virtually a double lesson (100 minutes). Please message me if you have any questions.

La France - Advanced French conversation questions about France

La France - Advanced French conversation questions about France

❖ La France - Advanced French conversation questions about France ❖ Part of our series of “discussions ciblées”. List of 35 vocabulary words related to the conversation questions about France. Includes 20 discussion questions. The questions are suitable for upper level and AP French or for middle and high school French immersion. The questions are fun and thought provoking, and interesting discussions will happen! Students probably won’t know the answers to a few of the questions, and when they find out they will know a lot more about French culture! You can print the list of words on one side of a page and the questions on the other side so that students can easily refer to the new vocabulary during their conversations. If you make a two sided copy everything will fit on one page. Also included is a set of speaking cards for students to use prior to using the discussion cards so that they can become familiar with the theme and many new words. The cards just need to be printed and cut out so that your students can use them in pairs or small groups. Each card says, “Décris le mot suivant en français et ton partenaire le devinera.” The vocabulary word is written both in French and English since many of the words will be new. This exposure to the vocabulary will make the discussion that follows flow easier. Students will still have easy access to the list of words on the other side of the photocopied questions. Don’t want to print? That’s ok! A PDF with just one card per page is included for easy projecting or for tablets.

Le 14 juillet - Fete nationale (French Bastille Day)

Resource used with my year 9 to teach key facts about the significance of the French Revolution and the meanings of the French Celebration of 14th July. It links in the GCSE Theme 1 (Customs) and it provides cultural awareness. PPT has 27 slides and covers two lessons with: 2 cultural starters Fact finder activity with worksheet (differentiated) and slides (to print out to display around the room) extension with a historical timeline to create. mini plenaries (short quiz, game, Q&A…) links to youtube videos: 1. historical fact recap (in English), 2. a fun song parody, 3. French TV of 14th July parade, 4. Extract of Les Miserables (English) and La vie en rose (French) a listening gapfill (teacher reading it out, differentiated worksheet) link to Studio 2 Vert (No screenshot due to copyright) This is probably more for lower set y9 or early KS3 due to the easy structures and input in English, but the videos are lighthearted to engage students.
