Le Petit Prince - French literary texts, analysis and study

Le Petit Prince - French literary texts, analysis and study

*Notebook Files ONLY - No Powerpoint available* This is a set of introductory lessons to Le Petit Prince (literature). I have created and used those resources to use with our more able year 11 students who have already done their French GCSE. They have thoroughly enjoyed the lesson. As they are planning to carry on with French at A-Level, this constitutes a perfect introduction to approach literature in a foreign language. This also serves as a trial for our next year's GCSE group and curriculum. Lesson 01 focuses on the cover and the characters with various activities around the cover, the inside cover, the characters and the author's drawings. Lesson 02 is about the dedication and has been split into two parts. The first part focuses on the importance of the dedication and the vocabulary for feelings. The second part focuses more the topics of the books presented in the dedication and a quick revision about plurals based on the dedication. Lesson 03 is about the first encounter between the narrator and the Little Prince. It focuses on the loneliness of the narrator as his plane breaks down in the middle of the desert. It starts with a multiple choice questionnaire to ensure the students got the gist of the extract. It moves on to studying the solitude of the narrator and the impact it has on the story, making links with the dedications. The last part focuses on the feminine form (basic/general grammar) and a plenary, students have to rewrite an extract of the text in the "she" form, while also making other agreements (adjectival, pronouns, verb endings...). Lesson 04 Lesson 04 picks up where lesson 04 left off. It focuses on the encounter between the Petit Prince and the narrator. It starts by looking into the loneliness of the narrator as a refresher. It then moves on to analysing the effect of surprise. The next part deals with the role of the reader in the extract with the use of the second person plural and the impact it has. There are two more stand alone parts (as my group is exceptionally able, they go through it very quickly): one is about the human senses and the second one is about the sound effect and the impact on the text. As a plenary, you look at the the character and the nicknames given by the narrator about the petit prince, looking into the etymology of the nouns. UPDATE: Lesson 05 Lesson 05 focuses on the relationship between the little prince and the rose. A brief summary is offered to sum up what happens in between and to facilitate the study of this passage (if you are not focusing on the whole book). The first activity is the simple comprehension activity on very large piece of literary text (63 lines). with multiple choice answers to question in the target language. The second activity focuses on lexical items about the description of the rose, divided between qualités & défauts of the rose.
