KS3/text level French Reading arrow-whole lesson introduction to reading strategies

KS3/text level French Reading arrow-whole lesson introduction to reading strategies

This tried and tested approach to reading provides a visual strategy which can be applied to a wide variety of texts in a second language or in English, improving not only language skills, but also general literacy. Particularly useful when exploiting authentic materials, it can equally be applied to more traditional texts and, once embedded, enables students of all ages to work successfully with more complex source materials than would otherwise have been the case. This resource models the strategy with a simple French text, however it can be applied to texts of a wide range of difficulty. It includes a ten slide teaching presentation to introduce the strategy, comprehensive teaching notes accompanied by thumbnails of all the materials, plus student sheets and the strategy arrow, which can be laminated for repeated use. The resource is also available modelled with a German text and with a Spanish text.

KS3/Beginners French Research activity - francophone countries

KS3/Beginners French Research activity - francophone countries

This resource can be used either as a stand-alone activity or as part of a unit of work, to develop both reading and research skills. It includes a teaching presentation and a 12 page resource which provides comprehensive teaching notes, accompanied by thumbnails of all the materials, plus the photocopiable pupil sheets. The activity is carefully staged to support pupils in developing independent reading, literacy and research skills. The reading and research aspects of the activity are presented separately, with the research building on the work completed in the reading. There is, in addition, scope for developing grammatical understanding of gender and prepositions, and presentation skills. The resource, therefore, could be used over a number of lessons and is suitable for use with a range of age groups.

Food Challenge Tasks

Food Challenge Tasks

A selection of 'Challenge Tasks' on the topic of food. These are based on authentic French resources (mainly infographs found on Pinterest) with comprehension questions added. I put these up on my 'Challenge Wall' in the classroom for the term and direct any students to them who finish their work early. To save photocopying costs I encourage students not to write on the sheets and to put them back on the wall when they're finished. I find that students get a huge sense of achievement from knowing that they are reading and understanding real French literature! As an extra incentive to try more difficult work I offer 'challenge stars' in return for tackling these tricky tasks. These are converted periodically into merits.

Year 8 settling activities

27 settling activities that I use with Year 8 more able students. I find that a settling activity on the board is really useful in ensuring a calm start to the lesson, whilst offering challenge from the first minute. These offer an easy means of revising vocab and grammar points that are not frequently covered and therefore easily forgotten!

L'écrivaine, Francine Christophe, raconte un petit miracle vécu à Bergen-Belsen

I stumbled across this extraordinarily moving and hopeful clip yesterday and feel that it deserves a wider audience. In clear, careful and beautifully articulated French, author Francine Christophe recounts a little miracle that was born of an act of kindness in Bergen-Belsen. I've done very little other than to put together a transcript of the story, with a link to a second, related clip and a bibliography of Christophe's work. I've also included a link to a version of the clip with English subtitles for any of your anglophone colleagues who may be looking for something for their history classes or Remembrance Day.
