6th Grade French Class<br />Bonjour Parents!<br />1<br />
Bienvenue/Welcome to:6th Grade French!<br />Learning a second language and culture <br />is a life-long advantage which will <br />benefit the children both <br />academically and cognitively<br />2<br />
About me…<br />Background<br />I grew up in Paris, France and moved to the US in 1992.<br />I attended Berkeley College and Montclair State University.<br />Experience<br />I taught French in an innovative French/English bilingual school in Bergen County for over two years.<br />3<br />
Communication and Culture<br />In this class, we will learn French and study the cultures of francophone countries, their similarities and their differences. This will include personal and social topics.<br />My goal is to have children engage in meaningful conversation and be able to read and write simple words and phrases in French by the end of the year.<br />We will do comparative cultural studies that will help students participate in home and global communities (such as internet and movies).<br />4<br />
Cultural<br />Personal Identity<br />Experiences that occur within one’s family, one’s community and the other culture (such as self, friends, family, pets, physical/personality descriptions, school, likes/dislikes, and pastimes).<br />5<br />
Cultural<br />Cultural Authentic Activities<br />Getting familiar with different cultural products and practices (such as authentic celebrations, songs & dances).<br />6<br />
Cultural<br />Healthy Eating Habit and Fitness Practices<br />Variation between different cultures (such as foods, shopping, eating in/out and wellness practices).<br />7<br />
Field Trip<br />Since we are going to study the French painters during the last quarter of the year, a field trip will be organized to the Museum of Modern Art in New York along with the Art Teacher.<br />All detailswillbediscussedprior to taking the trip… chaperoneswillbewelcome to join us.<br />8<br />
Homework<br />Students will bring homework on a regular basis on topics that have been previously studied in class. <br />Over the year children will be asked to work on special projects that will require access to internet/library. These assignments will enhance their creative and technological experiences.<br />Homework assignments will be graded.<br />9<br />
