Crise d'identité (Un jeu inspiré par Hedbanz®)

Crise d'identité (Un jeu inspiré par Hedbanz®)

En posant des questions fermées (des questions qui suscitent un “oui” ou un “non”), un(e) étudiant(e) essaie de deviner le nom de la personne ou du personnage imaginaire écrit sur la fiche au tableau noir / blanc derrière lui.This activity is designed to motivate your students to ask questions in French. Because popular icons engage even reluctant learners, I've put a heavy emphasis on popular culture in this set of 130+ personality cards. But you can tailor the game to almost any topic by incorporating the political, historical or literary figures you are currently studying.

Learning Intention and differentiated outcomes (SMSC). Starter: Pupils' receive crime cards to which then then decide individually upon the most fitting punishment this will link in later with the lesson when the guillotine and how it was used during the 'Terror' is explained. Pupils can compare justice and crimes fitting the appropriate punishments. Pupils will consolidate with a video regarding how the Revolution became extreme though the September Massacre as a case study.Pupils' then compete in groups to complete a literacy relay regarding the 'Terror' to increase their knowledge of the events which took place and the main forces involved.

I recently used this lesson for a mixed ability KS3 class. Pupils will learn about the storming of the Bastille during the French Revolution. The main task is literacy relay where pupils will work in teams to answer the questions related to the different interpretations of the Storming of the Bastille. Pupils are then to form a judgment regarding which sides' story of events they trust more, either Historian's version of events of that of the 3rd Estate. Pupils will then answer their leveled judgment question. I have also included a modern day link to how Bastille day is celebrated today along with an opportunity to learn beyond. Videos are embedded into the presentation, however I have also provided the links for these as well. Differentiation though outcome and a peep sheet to help with the main task. SMSC question included to encourage further discussion points. Many thanks.

Remembrance day - French vocabulary on emotions

Remembrance day - French vocabulary on emotions

Pupils are given a copy of the vocab list on last slide of powerpoint.They are then shown a series of images with a choice of 3 emotions and asked to show red/amber/green card to show which emotion they think is shown in the images. (Our pupils' planners have RAG pages - they could use different coloured pens / objects instead?) Later slides offer no choice of emotions, but encourage pupils to write an emotion on a whiteboard instead. Depending on ability of class pupils could be encouraged to write whole sentences rather than single words.
