French Speaking Countries Project

How much do your learners know about Francophone countries? Invite pupils to research different countries and teach one another about the different regions though a brochure and presentation. French language learners can work together or with a partner to research a  country, put together a brochure with images and words, and present the information to the whole class. Useful materials are included.

Core French Rubrics

Use these eight rubrics to inspire and grade eight different French projects that incorporate composition and presentation, and sometimes illustration. Each rubric includes a brief description of the project and project requirements. French language learners are graded for written work and oral presentation skills on a scale from developing (not yet within expectations) to strong (exceeds expectations).

Ah, Impressionism, one of the most studied genres of art. High schoolers study the works of the major French Impressionist painters: Renoir, Monet, Degas, Gauguin, Seurat, ToulouseLautrec, Utrillo, Pissarro, Cassatt, Morisot, and Caillebotte. They create products for presentation and use reading and writing strategies in various activities.
