World Cup 2018 French authentic reading resource / quiz

World Cup 2018 French authentic reading resource / quiz

I have compiled ‘Fact files’ in French on 6 Francophone players (1 from each Francophone country in the World Cup.) I have also written a huge quiz based on these fact files, plus a list of the teams and the timetable of the knock out rounds. The documents should be copied and given out to students in groups of 3/4 and they can use the information to answer the questions. Most questions are in English, with 8 in French at the end. 80 marks in total! Should keep students quiet for an hour Students could then create their own fact file on players of their choice similar to these. All information is authentic - from yahoo.fr / French Wikipedia / L’Equipe online. All documents are in Word so can be edited. Answers included. Suitable for KS3 / KS4 French Please provide feedback. I’m charging a small fee as several hours of work went into these resources.

Charlie Hebdo - liberté d'expression - authentic materials - MFL - FRENCH

Charlie Hebdo - liberté d'expression - authentic materials - MFL - FRENCH

This can make up a series of lessons about the Charlie Hebdo attacks of 2015 in Paris. More suited to KS4 and possible a more mature Year 9 group given the nature of the topic and the vocab used. The first few slides are a selection of starters using authentic materials that get pupils responding to images in a similar vain to the GCSE photocard. The lessons get pupils looking at current affairs but also looks at grammar, genuine quotes, and an article amongst other activities such as opinion lines. My classes really found this topic interesting but it also pushed them in terms of language, vocabulary and grammar. Alongside this Powerpoint I have also used the French Netflix documentary « Je suis Charlie » https://www.netflix.com/watch/80079253?trackId=13752289&tctx=0%2C1%2C491adc434dd06655319d9ea4a3625e6e22127a0d%3A5b75458081903e484cb2dc14579e901ead7c8d6c%2C%2C WARNING: not all of this documentary is suitable for showing to students so make yourself aware of the sections that ought to be skipped before pressing play! Obviously as this is on Netflix it requires a subscription and for it not to be blocked on the school IT system. Notes to teacher: SENSITIVE SUBJECT MATTER: Please look through all powerpoint and be aware of sensitive nature of this topic and be mindful of your classes potential response before using.
