French 2: Tuesday April 16 2013 Lesson Plan

DUE: Les Devoirs: Geographical Vocabulary/Grammar Practice! [Juniors gone last Friday for D-STEP are exempt from this assignment.]
  1. Pick ten countries from Vocab List 10.1 (don't forget the extra countries on page R21!).
  2. Grab a world map (without any labels on it!) from the Web and hand-label (i.e., use your pen/stylus) the ten countries you have chosen with their names in the French spelling.
  3. Along with those labels, write a sentence for each country saying what you will do (future tense!) in that country.
[10 minutes] Speaking Practice: students partner up, read each other their travel stories, partners translate out loud back to English.

[20 minutes] Pratiquons la géographie!
  • Students go to SmartBoard with partners. One reads sentences, other points to and labels countries on world map (see also this version) as student reads.
[25 minutes] Grammar Practice: Future Tense! Translate the following sentences into French (we'll go over them together in class today!):
  1. I will speak with the English girls.
  2. Will you finish your conversation with the German boys?
  3. The Italian boy will go to summer camp.
  4. We will see the Portuguese women.
  5. Will you travel abroad this summer?
  6. The Italian ladies will do some windsurfing.
  7. I will go hiking.
  8. Will you take a guided tour in New Zealand?
  9. The Spanish guy will go mountain-climbing in Switzerland.
  10. We will visit Russia.
  11. Will you be in Norway in June?
  12. My friends will visit their grandmother in Brazil by boat.
[15 minutes] Face-to-face vocab drill!

Les Devoirs: 
  1. Study for Vocab Quiz 10.1 (pp. 346–348 + countries on page R21!) jeudi, la prochaine fois!
  2. Write 20 original sentences in the future tense—i.e., saying somebody will do something!
  • Ten sentences must use je as the subject (I will...).
  • Ten sentences must use a different subject.
  • Every sentence must use a different verb! (I would suggest starting with the Chapter 7 Vocab List on p. 265, using all the verbs there, then working backwards through our other vocab lists!)
