The World Language-French course is a semester course for students in Grade 8 designed to introduce students to the French language and culture and is aligned with the New Jersey Student Learning Standards in World Languages. The course focuses on the development of communicative competence in the target language and understanding of the culture(s) of the people who speak the language. Students communicate about themselves and develop the ability to interact with one another using the four communication skills: listening, reading, writing and speaking. Major areas of focus include: vocabulary, geography, cultural aspects of the language, films, pictures, magazines, class projects, interactive speaking activities presented through various websites or social media sources, Google classroom, etc. In addition, the course will focus on the three levels of the World Language, (i.e. Interpretive, Interpersonal and Presentational), infusion of diverse technology such as Kahoot, Quizlet, Quia.com, Youtube, GoFormative, EdPuzzle, etc.
The course will engage students in using 21st century skills to understand, address global issues, learn from one another and work collaboratively with other students representing diverse cultures and lifestyles. Students will explore and study the different themes including “All About Me,” “School Days,” “Home, Sweet, Home,” “Going Green,” etc. Students will engage in a variety of developmentally appropriate learning activities with other students in other classes or countries using electronic tools where necessary.
Focus on student learning and teacher’s pedagogy will be based on classroom assessments and the Assessment Design Format. Student grades are based upon class participation, tests, quizzes, French journal entries, flipped culture lessons, homework, research projects, performance based assessment/activities based on the three levels of World Language (Interpretive and Interpersonal Presentations), Marking Period Assessments, Classwork, and teacher observations.
