To prepare for tomorrow’s evaluative conversation, think about how you will talk about the following:
Compare your life in the 21st century to the lives of young people in the Middle Ages. What are the differences? Are there any similarities? In your opinion, how do time and place affect our personal identities?
Think about chores, education, entertainment, food, housing, the lives of girls/boys, the choices that are available to you and the possibilities for jobs. You might also consider the lifestyles of nobles vs. peasants.
Be prepared to incorporate the language we’ve been learning around personal histories and life in the Middle Ages. Also, be prepared to use language structures like comparisons and both past tenses.
To prepare for tomorrow’s writing activity, review your Castles booklet, especially vocabulary around: food, entertainment, the people who lived and worked in the castles, and the kinds of people who attended feasts. You won’t be allowed to have your booklet with you while you’re writing.
Also, be comfortable describing actions and events in the past (using both the passé compose and the imparfait) and making comparisons.
Be prepared for your evaluative conversations tomorrow on the topic of “mes projets”. You will be drawing on vocabulary that we’ve been learning around our personalities, interests, les métiers, education, hopes and aspirations.
To be able to talk about plans, hopes and wishes, you’ll need to be comfortable using the future simple, the conditional and the subjunctive.
