Les Actualités means "News" or "Current Events" in French. This page provides you with important information for the unit we are currently studying. For more detail, you can go to the Assignments or Class Notes sections.
Beginning Monday, March 13, we will be learning how to talk about and describe family members. Grammar concepts include adjective agreement, possessive adjectives, and a review of AVOIR. Students will check their understanding on a vocabulary and grammar quiz before taking a Unit Test before April vacation. This will be our last test before our final exam, and so the format will mimic that of the exam so as to provide a sort of "run through."
Beginning Tuesday, January 17, we will be studying vocabulary related to school: classroom objects, courses, etc. We will learn a couple of new verb conjugations, how to tell exact time, and how to describe where things are. A main theme of this unit is asking and answering questions, both written and à l'orale.
Thursday, February 2: Reading Comprehension quiz
Friday, February 10: Vocab Quiz (Leçons A + B)
Friday, February 24: Question and Answer Test (includes oral component)
Though we'll use some food vocabulary as a way to practice some reading comprehension skills, we will begin Unit 3 in earnest after the Thanksgiving holiday. In this unit, students will learn how to have a short conversation with and invite a friend to a restaurant, where s/he will be able to order and pay for a meal. Additionally, we will study regional French cuisine and make time to have a celebratory and instructional meal. The summative assessments for this unit are:
Cuisine Project: Thursday, December 22
Recorded Conversation: Monday, January 9
Unit Test: Thursday, January 12
Additionally, there will be two "checkpoints" on December 7 and December 20. These checkpoints will serve as a time for students to consolidate their learning and get feedback on how they are doing.
Beginning Monday, October 3 and continuing until Thanksgiving, we will be studying Unit 2: "Qu'est-ce que tu aimes faire?" This unit is all about telling what you like (and don't like!) to do, and inviting friends to join you to do certain things. Following are the dates of major assessments:
Thursday, October 13: Vocab recognition quiz
Tuesday, October 25: Verb conjugation quiz
Thursday, November 10: Skit drafts due.
Thursday, November 17: Skit performances.
