French 1: Thursday April 11 2013 Lesson Plan

  1. Do p. 229 Exs. 14 & 15. (As always, write complete sentences!)
  2. Write descriptions of two ideal outfits, two outfits that you like to wear.
    • Each outfit must include five items of clothing from Vocab List 7.1.
    • You must describe each item of clothing with an adjective.
    • Each outfit must go with a different season.
    • Use phrases like Je porte..., je voudrais porter....
[10 minutes] Vocab/Grammar warm-up! Translate the following commands, using imperative forms of porter:
  1. Wear your jeans! (tu)
  2. Wear your suit! (vous)
  3. Let's wear our boots!
  4. Wear your scarf! (tu)
  5. Wear your sunglasses! (vous)
  6. Let's wear our parkas!
  • All students write down translations; then pick six to write translations au tableau.
  • CAH checks homework during this time.
[20 minutes] Oral conversation practice: Students read their outfit sentences aloud; CAH asks questions, students respond.

[20 minutes] Grammar review: interrogative adjectives (quel): Students read p. 229 Exs. 14 & 15 aloud, compare sentences.

[20 minutes] Oral grammar practice with ce and quel:
  • CAH asks Quel/Quelle/Quels/Quelles ___ préfères-tu?
  • Students respond Je préfère ce/cet/cette/ces ____.
  • At halfway mark, switch order! Let students ask me quel.
Les Devoirs: 

  1. Étudiez comme fous pour l'examen de vocabulaire 7.1, pp. 222–225 lundi, le 15 avril!
  2. Then translate the following sentences:
  • Which vest is Mr. H. wearing? 
  • Quel gilet est-ce que Monsieur H. porte? 
  • He's wearing that purple silk vest.
  • Il porte ce gilet en soie violet.
  1. Which blouse do you prefer?
  2. I prefer this white silk blouse.

...and don't use Google Translate. I've already checked; they come out with all sorts of errors that you don't want to make. Use Vocab List 7.1 and your brain.
