Research project (Motivational triggers) for KS3 French - Bon voyage  (Holidays) (AQA new spec)

Research project (Motivational triggers) for KS3 French - Bon voyage (Holidays) (AQA new spec)

This is a research project lesson (or two lessons really) that I created for my year 7 French students. The writing example can be easily adapted if more structures are to be added. The idea is to promote independent learning via research. Students have to research information about the place that they would like to visit (any place in world really but I encouraged to visit France). Students decide on the task and start researching relevant information about the chosen location using their iPads/ Chromebooks. At the same time they create a poster or a travel brochure with pop-up images (!!!) about the chosen location. During the second lesson they distribute the writing task bullet points in-between the members of the group and complete a piece of writing as per success criteria and model answer. In the end they stick their written notes (or attach them) to their poster /travel brochure. The whole process takes about 2 lessons and is perfect for the end of the topic as you can incorporate all of the structures / vocabulary learned during the term! Note: the writing example is oriented on the revision of tenses studied this year, holidays, weather and location vocabulary. Please let me know if you have any other ideas on how this project can be implemented. If you still have some time left you can enjoy few games I have inserted to simply have fun during the (possibly) last lesson of the year.

French Writing Journal

French Writing Journal

Bulletin Journals are a creative and fun way to engage students in writing. Taking inspiration from Pinterest, I put together these four sheets which cover topics such as : Food/drink, chores, school subjects, daily routine, holidays (past and future) then a more creative sheet where students fill their 'Happiness Box' (with nouns) and list the things they would like to learn (using verbs). I plan to use this as a Writing Assessment. There is scope for all levels of ability in this task. The pages can be used individually or as a booklet. I plan to use the 'Ma Vie' sheet as the 1st page and the ' Boîte à Bonheur' sheet as the back page with the other two sheets in the middle. I have now added the assessment sheet to accompany the journal.
