CURRICULUM PROGRAM: Virtual School Program
COURSE TITLE: French III
CALENDAR YEAR: 2014-2015
GRADE LEVEL: 9-12
COURSE LENGTH: 36 weeks
SUGGESTED PREPARATION: French I, French II
This third year of French is a continuation of the first two years. The student will continue to improve listening; speaking, reading and writing skills through activities that are based on pedagogically proven methods of foreign language instruction. Throughout the course, students learn to express themselves using ever-increasing vocabulary, present-tense verbs, past-tense verbs, articles, and adjectives.
Grammar is introduced and practiced in innovative and interesting ways with a variety of learning styles in mind. Culture is embedded throughout the course in an attempt to help the learner focus on the French-speaking world and its culture, people, geographical location and history.
By the end of Level III in secondary school, students comprehend an expanded range of vocabulary, more complex conversations, narratives, and recorded material within familiar contexts, including high-frequency idiomatic expressions. They identify main ideas and some details on a number of topics, such as those presented in the target culture’s TV, radio, video, or live and computer-generated presentations. Students communicate oral and written information about familiar topics with sufficient accuracy that listeners and readers understand most of what is presented. When interacting on familiar topics in present time, they express their own thoughts using sentences and strings of sentences. They are able to meet practical writing needs, such as short letters and notes, by recombining learned vocabulary and structures, demonstrating full control of present time and some control of other time frames such as the future and the past. When preparing oral and written presentations on familiar topics, they use a range of sentences and strings of sentences primarily in present time, but also in past and future time. Students demonstrate increasing cultural knowledge in oral and written presentations. They demonstrate control of an expanding number of familiar words and phrases and of a limited number of idiomatic expressions. Students may be understood by sympathetic native speakers who are used to dealing with foreigners.
