Advanced French Reading & Essay Writing: Napoléon et Joséphine

Advanced French Reading & Essay Writing: Napoléon et Joséphine

Depuis le départ du premier consul pour la campagne de Marengo, où je le suivis, jusqu'au départ de Fontainebleau, où je fus obligé de quitter l'empereur, je n'ai fait que deux absences, l'une de trois fois vingt-quatre heures, l'autre de sept ou huit jours. Hors ces congés fort courts, dont le dernier m'était nécessaire pour rétablir ma santé, je n'ai pas plus quitté l'empereur que son ombre. MÉMOIRES DE CONSTANT, Introduction. About The Author Louis Constant Wairy was a personal servant of Joséphine Bonaparte, and later Napoléon Bonaparte. As Napoléon’s ‘premier valet de chambre’, he was at the emperor’s side for fifteen years. Incredibly, he wrote an account of his experiences, offering the curious reader interesting insights about the famous couple’s personalities and habits, and also relating anecdotes and offering descriptions that bring the time and places of Napoléon’s rule to life. Whether you admire the self-proclaimed emperor – or not – you are sure to find this selection of texts entertaining, for the descriptions of historical events, fashions, battles, palaces, daily life and people. Contents & Instructions Here are 27 excerpts from the diaries of Constant, suitable for advanced students who are ready to improve their French through a generous amount of reading. Each text is two to three pages long. The student should begin by reading the excerpt. Unfamiliar vocabulary should be copied into the blank list provided for each section (or a separate notebook), and translated with the help of a dictionary. If it is easier for the student to make notes in the margins of the text they may do so. Large margins have been provided for this purpose. Having read the excerpt, the student must now exercise their research and writing skills. Choose what type of essay you will write before your begin reading the excerpts (or have a teacher choose for you). Refer to the ‘Essay Writing’ section and follow the instructions to write either a snythèse de texte, commentaire de texte, or dissertation.

Unification of Italy, 1830-1870: Garibaldi's Expedition to Sicily

Unification of Italy, 1830-1870: Garibaldi's Expedition to Sicily

A full lesson on Garibaldi's expedition to Sicily in 1860. This was used as part of a (successful!) interview lesson; the content is part of the Edexcel AS unit: Italian Unification, 1830-1870. Included is a lesson plan that details the structure of the lesson and possible questions to ask students. The starter activity involves students cutting and sticking the cards to the relevant places on the map (chronological order); they can then go back and highlight key details. Then, as the teacher goes through the PowerPoint presentation, students should be adding in further details to their sheets. Finally, a primary source has been included to relate all of this back to the exam. I have also included some teacher notes for further detail on some areas.
