All Students, complete the following before your next class on Monday or Tuesday:
Read & review p 2-3 of your new unit package
Read chapters 1 & 2 of Au revoir l’Acadie
Complete the quick ‘Who is it?’ p 4 of unit package
Review discussion questions on p 5 & be prepared to talk on Monday
To make up for the missed discussion in class today, please do the following by Tuesday:
Watch the film by Frédéric Back, Crac!
Watch the film, La Chasse-Galérie
Do research, if necessary, to learn about the significance of the stories
Write a one page essay, in English, to show your understanding of the cultural and historical context of Le chandail de hockey, Crac! and La Chasse-Galérie
***If you were away today, please come and see me to receive your last unit package & novel so that you are prepared for class next week
***There will be quick learning check ins (oral, interpretive and written assessments) throughout the next two weeks. You can be prepared by staying focused, and completing the reading & novel work assigned each day
Watch the short film version of Le Chandail de Hockey here
You may need to watch it more than once for comprehension
Next, start working through the vocabulary and questions handed out in class
It would be beneficial for you to read at least the first 2 pages of the story as you learn the vocabulary & answer the questions. If you have time & want to extend your learning, go ahead and try to read the whole story.
You will have some time tomorrow to finish up, but there will be another short film and some reading to do in the morning as well. Plan your time accordingly!
You have a series of tasks to work through this morning!
1.Listen to this song
Then, work through the lyrics on p 66-67 of your unit package
Notice the tense!
2. Next, work through the Level Up writing task on p48-49 of your unit package to practise writing on the topic of travel. You might even be able to incorporate some of your new airport/airplane vocabulary in your work 😉
3. Lastly, start planning your trip! You will orally share your trip plans on Mon/Tues next week with two partners. Please see this document to help you to prepare Le voyage – conversation
You may choose to have screen shots on your phone of the places you will visit on your trip. It is not required, but may help some of you to better describe and explain. Only choose this option if you feel it will be helpful
No need to memorize all of the information. You may have notes in English of your trip plans.
Review the expressions on p58 that are always followed by le subjonctif
Make notes in English if there are any expressions that you do not understand
Study the endings & how to form the subjunctive – including irregulars on p59!
The irregulars are very commonly used in daily speech! Memorize them 🙂
3. At the bottom of the page, write 10 sentences using the language chunks from p58.
Make sure to use the correct subjunctive in the second part of the sentence.
Remember that the language chunks that start with ‘il’ are impersonal. You don’t change the ‘il’ to any other subject. For example: You cannot say Elle faut que… or Je faut que …. that doesn’t make any sense!
4. Go to the Questions Pour Madame channel and reply to the conversation
5. All students will orally present country infographics and ask/answer questions next class
