An example of an Individual Research Project - Complete study - New A-level (2017) FRENCH

This is a complete example of an Individual Research Project (IRP) with a completed log book. The title of the research is based on the following topic: Titre de mon sujet : Le rap français dans les banlieues Problématique : Le rap pour Supreme NTM est-il une échappatoire pour ces jeunes banlieusards français ? Comment arrivent-ils à dénoncer une société qui va mal à travers ce genre musical? This resource includes: - A completed log book by a student with all the steps and tips to guide and help your student. - All the sources that go with the project (an analysis of one of the sources to show students how to get the most out of their sources) - An EDITABLE log book for your students to complete on their laptop. Teacher tip: I actually gave this sample to my students before the summer and asked them to come back in September with a topic they want to research and start selecting a few sources so they can formulate a specific question or area of study in September. Please check my other resources on the IRP and do not forget to check this resource for regular updates! :-) I will soon add an audio tape of a sample oral to go with this project. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/individual-research-project-complete-student-teacher-study-guide-new-a-level-2017-new-update-11653960 I hope you will enjoy my resources and if you have a question on a particular slide or activity, please do not hesitate to contact me or leave me a message.

Midi 20,  Grand Corps Malade - Practising understanding the time with a song.

Midi 20, Grand Corps Malade - Practising understanding the time with a song.

I created this resource for my Year 12 ab initio class, after we learnt to tell the time in French. The purpose of this activity is to get students used to recognising simple sentences/words in a text spoken at normal speed, as well as revising key vocabulary linked to activities and daily life. The video clip also helps students associate words with visuals. At the end, there is a creative activity aimed at getting students to use the time in French, as well as what they learnt in the song, to produce a piece of creative writing. Grand Corps Malade is a famous French slammer (slam is spoken poetry with music) and his diction is very clear, making his songs ideal to work on with students. My students really loved this song and went on to downloading it for themselves later on. It could also be used with a GCSE/MYP group.

L'amitié à travers les chansons

L'amitié à travers les chansons

This worksheet looks at 2 very different songs, both on the topic of Friendship: Les copains d'abord (Georges Brassens) and L'Itinéraire (Bénabar). It is an excellent opportunity to develop the use of French slang (argot) and colloquialism, while looking at two different approaches to the concept of friendship. The first song may require some level of explanation as there are many cultural references that can be quite obscure to students but it is an absolute classic. Originally created for my year 12 French B Standard and Higher Level class, but can be adapted to AS/A levels, possibly even advanced (I)GCSE. I have included a suggested markscheme for the questions at the end of the document.
