Possible learning experiences

Levels 3 and 4

Although links between specific key competencies and achievement objectives have been provided for each example, language students can be developing all of the key competencies as they work towards the core achievement objectives.

Selecting and using language, symbols, and texts to communicate – students understand and produce information and ideas.

Managing self and relating to others – students express and respond to personal interests.

Reading, writing, presenting

  • Using their knowledge of French in understanding and constructing simple texts, students write about animals.
  1. Each student chooses five animals and finds out what they are called in French, keeping their choices secret from the rest of the class. Everyone draws their five animals and swaps drawings with another student, who has to label the animals, using a dictionary or word list if necessary.
  2. Each student selects one or more of these animal drawings and makes a poster featuring at least three things liked and disliked by the animal(s).

Selecting and using language, symbols, and texts to communicate – students understand and produce information and ideas.

Managing self and relating to others – students express and responds to personal needs and interests.

Participating and contributing in communities – students use cultural knowledge to communicate appropriately.

Reading, listening, writing, speaking, viewing, performing

  • Understanding and constructing simple texts using their knowledge of French and describing aspects of their own background and immediate environment, students create and produce a role play.
  1. Students listen to, read, and/or watch on DVD interactions between people introducing themselves and others and talking about others, for example, people who are at the airport to meet an exchange student.
  2. In their role play, students use idiomatic expressions appropriate to the person they are talking to and the context.
