You do not have to master the ‘conditionnel passé’, but many of you have been trying to communicate complex thoughts in your conversations and some practice will help you to be clearer and more confident taking risks in class 🙂
Be prepared to participate in conversations tomorrow using the 10 questions that you created in class today and the vocabulary/activities seen in the Martinique videos
Read up to the end of Chapter 17 & be ready to contribute to the conversations about chapter 16 – 17
Groups who are leading the discussion on these chapters must be ready at the beginning of class. You will only have 5-10 minutes to discuss with your group before we begin. Remember to bring the focus of the discussion back to the novel and the development of the story. Students who are guiding discussions are not required to use the unit package…Be creative, personalize and plan the discussion in a way that would engage YOU 🙂
For tomorrow, everyone should be prepared to contribute to the conversation about Chapter 15.
As discussed in class today, each group will be responsible for guiding the class discussion on a specific chapter of the novel. Each group must be present and prepared to participate on the day that we discuss the assigned chapter. Each one of you is also expected to continue to contribute to conversations each day.

As discussed in class, I will not be collecting your packages at the end of this unit. The true/false questions are designed to guide your comprehension. Use your own discretion to decide if they are helpful to you. More time reading and learning new vocabulary may be more beneficial. Consider keeping a list of personal questions you have about the story and its meaning.
Be prepared to share your answers in class tomorrow
Finish reading Chapter 9, but leave questions for tomorrow in class
As discussed in class today, Le Petit Prince exposes us to a complex variety of tenses. The story is told by the narrator in the past tense (using the literary passé simple instead of passé composé) and often tells the little prince’s story from before they met.
