Syllabus cont. Content Overview: Bienvenue au niveautrois! This year students will explore different French-speaking countries through vocabulary, short films, articles, grammar, and selections of literature. Along with intensive review of previously learned grammar, students will learn the pluperfect and subjunctive tense, demonstrative pronouns and adjectives, as well as other select new grammatical structures. Classes will be conducted primarily in French. Students will be expected to complete homework on an almost nightly basis, as well as participate in discussion, give oral presentations, and create meaningful projects. Students will be evaluated by the “5 C’s” standards of foreign language learning.
The “5 C’s” • Communication – communicate in languages other than English • Cultures – gain knowledge and understanding of other cultures • Connections– connect with other disciplines and acquire information • Comparisons– develop insight into the nature of language and culture • Communities – participate in multilingual communities at home and around the world
Syllabus cont. Classroom Expectations: As a general rule, you should always come to class on-time and prepared and respect your materials, peers and teacher. I encourage flexibility and a positive attitude – we are all going to make mistakes and occasionally sound funny as we’re learning a new language – it’s normal! Let’s encourage each other! Participation and active engagement in activities is also essential for success. Note: Absolutely NO ONLINE TRANSLATORS are permitted for use on any and all assignments.
Expectations continued • Speak French whenever possible – with the teacher and each other • Keep binder and work neatly organized • Ask questions! Don’t wait until it’s too late! • Take notes… you will review them often • Try to take your bathroom breaks during passing period • Please save side conversations for after class – class time is work time • Be flexible…
