I rarely use textbooks and I prefer to create my own SoW and my resources, using current material, such as songs, videos and news articles.

L'Étranger, Albert Camus - Workbook

(1)
I created this workbook when I studied L'Étranger with my Year 13 French B Higher Level class. The aim of this workbook is to provide a variety of activities to help students understand the novel, the style and philosophy of its author. There are comprehension exercises, writing tasks, grammar activities (use of tenses in the novel) and one interactive oral activity. It is geared towards French B Higher Level students, but could easily be used for A-level students. Working through this workbook would take 3 to 4 weeks.

Les clauses avec 'si' --> Grammar worksheet linked to the topic of the Environment (Standard Level)

(0)
This worksheets offers students the opportunity to revise the formation of the imperfect, the simple future and the conditional, which they often confuse. It then explains 3 structures with 'si': - Si + present + future: Si le gouvernement ne met rien en place, les températures vont continuer d’augmenter. - Si + imperfect + conditional: Si le gouvernement ne mettait rien en place, les températures continueraient d’augmenter. - Et si + imparfait? : Et si les températures continuaient d'augmenter? There are 2 practise exercises (gapfill and fairly substantial translation exercise) for students to practise. Examples and exercises are all based on the topic of the environment and therefore provide students with the opportunity to revise the basic vocabulary on this topic. It can be used along with the same worksheet I have uploaded for Higher Level if you wish to differentiate the lesson.

La presse en France - Vocabulary building

I made this lesson as an introduction to my unit on the media and the press. The text is about the press in France and the difference between newspapers and magazines, dailies, and weeklies, etc. It is an excellent opportunity to revise or introduce some key vocabulary related to this topic (hebdomadaire, mensuel, la Une, la police, les faits divers, etc.). There is a vocabulary exercise, as well as a comprehension task, and a gap-fill summar of the text at the end.

Le Petit Prince, Antoine de Saint Exupéry - Feuilles de travail

(1)
This is a series of activities to guide the reading of Le Petit Prince. Each worksheet goes in pairs: the students' sheet and the teacher's notes. The focus of these worksheets is to help students understand the book, but also to develop their vocabulary and ability to write creatively in French. There is some literary analysis of the text to give students the opportunity to transfer the skills developed in English. There are also a few grammar exercises, based on the text (irregular plural of nouns and adjectives, adjective agreements and pronouns). This represents 3 - 4 weeks worth of work with students. At the end, I chose to show them the animation movie which came out in July 2015. I created this resource for my Year 12 French B Higher Level group, but I have also used it (with modifications) with my Year 11 advanced IGCSE group.

Les clauses avec "si" --> Grammar worksheet linked to the topic of the environment (Higher Level)

This grammar worksheet starts with a brief revision of the imperfect, the future simplet and the conditional tenses/modes, which students often tend to confuse. It then introduces the 3 different types of "si" clauses: - Si + present + future --> Si nous continuons de gaspiller l’énergie, nous aurons de gros problèmes. - Si + imperfect + conditional --> Si nous continuions de gaspiller l’énergie, nous aurions de gros problèmes. - Si + pluperfect + conditional past --> Si nous avions continué de gaspiller l’énergie, nous aurions eu de gros problèmes. The explanation is followed by 2 fairly difficult exercises on the topic of the environment. I have created and used this worksheet with my French Higher Level group in Year 13. It could also be used for a French SL able group or for differentiation purposes (see worksheet on 'si' clauses for Standard Level)

Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain - Booklet + guide to writing a film review

(0)
Here's a guided worksheet to complete as you watch the movie. It focuses mainly on developing vocabulary and enhancing comprehension but can be supported by class discussion. The second worksheet is a follow-on from the booklet and gives students the opportunity to read a film review for 'Amélie', look at how to write a film review, and plan their own review. The level of difficulty is A2/B1, accessible for students who have been learning French for 2-3 years at least. It is a great opportunity for students to gain an insight into French culture. Watching the movie and completing the booklet would take up to 5-6 hours. The film review worksheet would take about an hour to complete and the review can be set as an assessed task or a homework.

I created this resource for 3 of my year 10s who are much more advanced than the rest of the class. It is designed so that students can work independently and introduces new vocabulary and grammar, but also includes a reading comprehension task and some opportunities for speaking. This should represent about 7 or 8 hours of work for a student, providing they take the time to learn the vocabulary, take notes and practise the grammar. This is also ideal to set as cover and it can be given to students up to year 12 as thorough revision. I have also included an answer sheet for all the activities.

It covers regular, irregular and reflexive verbs in the following tenses and modes: - infinitive - Pluperfect - Imperfect - Perfect - Recent past - Present - Future with 'aller' - Simple future - Conditional It can be given as a task to complete in class (in which case you will have to wipe it clean).
