French 3

Le Programme des Études: Français 3 (2015-2016)

Description Having attained novice level basic skills, students in level 3 will enrich their knowledge of French through the exploration of the cultural and literary history of France, ranging from prehistoric cave paintings and the guillotine to love stories and comic theater. Students increase their skills in listening, oral expression, reading, writing, and grammar. In addition to the text, students prepare reading, research, oral, and cultural projects. Level 3 is an intense intermediate course requiring mature study skills and motivation. A grade of 75 or above in French 2 basic skills or consent of the instructor is highly recommended.

Expectations In accordance with the language proficiency guidelines established by ACTFL (the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages), students will develop their basic language skills of speaking, listening, reading, and writing to NOVICE-High-INTERMEDIATE-Low-Mid. Students are able to expand basic communicative exchanges by asking and answering questions with some spontaneity. They can read consistently with increased understanding. They can write short simple paragraphs and compositions showing some evidence of organization. Speech and writing are understandable to linguistically sympathetic speakers.

Class Website All daily activities and assignments will be posted on the website. Many assignments will be sent to your Google Drive French folder.

Homework Assignments In this class, students will have homework on a nightly basis. All homework assignments will be collected and graded. No late work will be accepted unless I have given prior permission. Therefore, if you are going on a field trip or to a sporting event, make sure that you hand in your homework AND pick up the next day’s assignments before leaving. If you have done an assignment on time AND it is returned to you with a grade of less than 65, you may (and should) fix the errors and resubmit the assignment the next day for a passing grade.

Quizzes and Tests Quizzes will be given throughout the year and will be announced. Tests will be given at the end of each lesson. There are 12 lessons. Therefore, math tells us that we should have approximately 3 test per marking period.

Plagiarism and Machine Translation Do not use online translators. I will be able to tell. You will receive a zero and the administration will be notified. Do your own work. If you need help, come see me.
