French 1: Thursday February 14 2013 Lesson Plan

DUE: Les Devoirs:
  1. Finish your travel slideshows, be prepared to present Thursday
  2. Write 8 French mini-dialogues of this form:
    • "Are you going to do X?" (use aller + infinitive for futur proche!)
    • "I just did X." (use venir de + infinitive for passé récent!)
    • Each dialogue must use a different verb for "X" (chanter, étudier..., faire...).
Let's review those slideshow criteria:
Present a slideshow depicting your ideal travel itinerary for the year... tout en français!. Minimum six slides:
  1. First slide: Your name, plus a title.
  2. Second slide: Spring destination, weather, and two activities
  3. Third slide: Summer destination, weather, and two activities
  4. Fourth slide: Fall destination, weather, and two activities
  5. Fifth slide: Winter destination, weather, and two activities
  6. Sixth slide: Summary of trip
  • All slides must have images and French text (at least five words, but no more than ten)!
  • When you talk about talk about the weather and the activities you are going to do, phrase them in the futur proche (p. 166): e.g., for your summer trip, you may say, Il va faire beau. Nous allons aller à la plage (allons aller means "we're going to go")For your winter trip, you may say Il va neiger (note use of infinitive form neiger instead of conjugated for neige). Nous allons faire du snowboard.
  • DUE today, Feb. 12: text of slides.
  • DUE next time, Feb. 14: slides to present in class!

[25 minutes] Student slideshows: Les vacances super! En français!
  • CAH grades on meeting the above criteria (no English on slides or out of mouth!), plus pronunciation and preparation (knowing what you are going to say, being able to talk to us instead of staring at your own slides).
[25 minutes] Grammar Practice: venir! p. 168
  • Students pair up: Student 1 asks one of the questions that Student 1 wrote in the future (using aller + infinitive!) for the homework; Student 2 answers with a sentence like the homework asked for saying so-and-so just did the action Student 1 asked about (venir de + infinitive!). Go back and forth this way through as many of the 8 questions on each student's homework as time allows.
  • CAH checks homework during this time.
  • Then each student writes one of her/his mini-dialogues au tableau! Review together!
[25 minutes] Oral Quiz Practice!
