French election Final round Macron VS Le Pen / Les elections françaises 2eme tour.

The French have voted for their 2 favorite candidates for the presidential elections. It is now quite hard to tell the future and if you are teaching French you may find it hard to explain the programs of each of the candidates. This resource will help you teach about the elections by putting the results into the French context and by explaining the birth of each political party. This resource is aimed at intermediate-advanced level students. This resource contains a PPT with 24 slides with different activities. It also contains a booklet for students so that they can keep a track of their learning. All the activities are corrected to save you time. Here's what you will get:1. a matching up activity with the 5 main political parties that were competing (texts with main ideas and political trends)2. a true/false activity about the political campaign3. a reading with questions about Marine Le Pen and her program4. Two video clips: Students need to answer questions about her political trends and main concerns for the voters of the Front National5. A mini-biography to reorder about Marine Le Pen6. A reading about the history of the FN and how it is presented now7. A text about Emmanuel Macron and his program with questions8. A brainstorming about what students may know about him9. A video clip with questions10. a mini-biography to reorder about Emmanuel Macron11. A text giving some insight about his Party En Marche12. The results as a conclusionEnjoy. I am sure it will help you teach about the elections and their importance not only in France but also on the international scene. I suggest you also use this resource that gives you a clear idea of the political system in France.Check here French election Process
