French 1: Friday March 1 2013 Lesson Plan

Note: CAH at State Debate! Mme. Durst runs the show! Tenez-vous bien! Soyez sages!

DUE:  Vocab 6.1 Writing and Drawing Practice!
  • Write all vocab phrases in Exprimons-nous p. 185, Exprimons-nous p. 187, and Entre copains p. 189 four times.
  • Write all vocab words and phrases in the pictures on pp. 184–185 three times.
  • Include la crêpe! French students must know the word crêpe!
  • Alongside all of the nouns for foods and table things, draw or paste a picture that clearly depicts each noun!
  • Do all words and phrases in the order presented on pp. 185–189, not the incomplete alphabetical list on p. 213! 
[15 minutes] Oral Warm-Up!
  • Mme. Durst leads students in reading and repeating of all vocab words and phrases on pp. 185–189.
  • Then students pair up, quiz each other over all words on Vocab List 6.1.
  • Mme Durst checks homework for completion at this time. There should be around 59 separate entries! (TA may do this check in White 3 and White 4, allowing Mme Durst to focus on individual pronunciation assistance.)
[45 minutes] Mega-Conversation Practice 
  • Mme Durst begins by asking each student what he she likes to eat for breakfast. Students should be ready for follow-up questions! (Alternate between teacher and TA in White 3 and White 4.)
  • Then Mme Durst reviews past oral questions from Semester Oral Exam and our recent Chapter 5 oral quiz.
[30 minutes] Introduce New Grammar: the partitive! p. 188
  • We know that de can be used as a preposition meaning "of" or "from."
  • New: we can also use de to express the idea of "some":
    1. Je prends du café: "I'm having some coffee."
    2. Mireille prend de la confiture: "Mireille is having some jam."
    3. Nous prenons des crêpes!: "We're having some crepes!"
  • Note that if you're not having any 
  • Practice in class with pp. 189–190 Exs. 8 and 9.
Les Devoirs: Write ten original sentences using the partitive and terms from Vocab 6.1.
  1. Each sentence should have a different subject (i.e., a different person eating or having or wanting something) and a different direct object (a different food being eaten or had or wanted).
  2. Pay attention to whether you need du, de la, or des.
  3. Write two sentences in the negative, saying the subject doesn't want any of whatever you're talking about.
