No et moi * Aidons-nous du film * Booklet + MS * New A-level * NEW!!

No et moi * Aidons-nous du film * Booklet + MS * New A-level * NEW!!

No et moi * Aidons-nous du film * Booklet + MS * New A-level * NEW!! A complete study guide of the first 26 chapters of the book No et moi using the film as a support. Ideal to help your student have a clear chronology of the book in their head with the help of visuals from the film. These resources include: - Two starter activities with appealing worksheets to approach the movie - A study booklet for students with pictures from the movie to guide them through the chronology of the book. (students need to make precise references to the book with quotes) - A worksheet with titles linked to the student booklet - An answer booklet which can be used as a complete study booklet of the first 26 chapters of the book. All the quotes and references you need to teach are written for you. References to specific pages are also given. (You will need to have 'Le Livre de Poche' version of the book) Teaching tips: I gave this booklet to my students at the end of Year 1 of the French A-level after having studied the first 26 chapters with them. I noticed that some of them were struggling with the chronology and the precise order of scenes in the book or where to find quotes. This booklet has helped them greatly to have a clear vision of the book and they now have all the references that they need to write their essay. You will need about 4 hours to complete this booklet with your students but they can be given some questions to answer at home and the first half of the movie to watch at home too to save time in class. I will create a second booklet soon to cover the second half of the movie and the book! Keep checking my shop for new updates! :-) Plenty more resources on No et moi in my shop!

This is a homework that I set my class last year; however it can be used as a starter, plenary or just as something to pass time. The sound clip is attached to the pp but as sometimes technology does let you down, I have attached the original audio clip to this also.
