A-LEVEL FRENCH La Haine Essay Writing Framework

A-LEVEL FRENCH La Haine Essay Writing Framework

This is a list of generic essay phrases that I have used in my many model essays on La Haine which I give to my students at the start of the year and encourage them to use when writing their own essays on the film. In this way, students are "trained" to write their essays in a structured fashion, following the Point-Evidence-Evaluation model. I call this the bones of the essay, and the meat on those bones comes from their own planning and ideas. I also encourage my pupils to add to this list should they come across any expressions that they like/use that aren't already on the list. Although students obviously aren't allowed any aid in the exam with them, by the final exam, some of these phrases will be embedded in their work by force of repetition. Students will naturally develop "favourites" and provided that these are used in the correct context, it will enable them to focus more on the content, i.e. gaining more marks for the critical analysis of the ideas they put forward.

A-LEVEL FRENCH Kiffe Kiffe Demain - KKD présente une image optimiste de la vie en banlieue (ESSAY)

A-LEVEL FRENCH Kiffe Kiffe Demain - KKD présente une image optimiste de la vie en banlieue (ESSAY)

This is an extensive 1043-word model response to the A-level French Paper 2 question on Kiffe Kiffe Demain « Ce livre présente surtout une image optimiste de la vie en banlieue parisienne. » Dans quelle mesure êtes-vous d’accord avec ce jugement ? The document also contains activities aimed at exploiting the model essay, including a phrase finder task for useful generic essay structures, a match-up synonym task of words/expressions found in the essay, a French > English translation task and a summary task which will require students to summarise what they understand from each of the paragraphs in the main body of the essay in English following the point, evidence and personal evaluation rationale in terms of structure. This template then serves as a basis for students to commence their own plan to attempt the same essay question.

A-LEVEL FRENCH La Haine - Le scénario et les événements importants  (1 lesson PPoint & handout)

A-LEVEL FRENCH La Haine - Le scénario et les événements importants (1 lesson PPoint & handout)

A PowerPoint and supporting Word document which will provide at least one lesson aimed at improving student's knowledge of the plot and order of events in La Haine, which is so often rusty even after viewing the film for the first few times. Tasks include matching summaries of key events to clips from the film, ordering events that take place in the film and writing a short summary against the clock to present verbally in pairs/to class. Key/tricky vocabulary in the summaries have also been highlighted, and pupils can be encouraged to use the context of what they have already understood and asked to build an understanding of these expressions.

Joyeux Noel (movie) Worksheet -- with answer sheet

Joyeux Noel (movie) Worksheet -- with answer sheet

Joyeux Noel is one of the greatest movies ever made, and I like to show it just before introducing a U.S. History segment on World War One. My wife, a French teacher, also shows it in her French classes. This worksheet has a variety of content-based questions requiring 1-3 sentence answers, along with a few that require outside research on the topics of international law and other issues. The questions are designed for a U.S. history class, but can be adapted for the cultural aspects of a French or German language class. Questions preceded with a “►” can be used as DBQs for longer 5x5 essays. – Thomas R. Eddlem
