3 Qu’est-ce que c’est qu’un monstre?
This workshop will outline how to adapt the Monster Unit from our old program to better suit CEFR “l’approche actionnelle” and the revised curriculum with an emphasis on oral interaction and integrating language structures in a practical, fun way. la thème: Qu’est-ce que c’est qu’un monstre?

4 Le but d’apprentissage
Nous apprenons comment employer nos ressources dans une façon plus communicative.

5 Bev’s background over 20 years experience teaching Core and Immersion French - applied and general and academic, mostly secondary, some elementary department head, facilitator,Special Assignment Westdale is a semestered school - 75 minute periods program used: Sans Frontières & stuff I borrow & adapt & share Co-author of Tu Parles 1, RK Publishing

6 l’approche actionnelle
Action-oriented and communicative approaches to teaching FSL focus on meaning over form; emphasize meaningful interactive activities; centre on communicative language needs; and, when possible, highlight authentic tasks within the context of a classroom environment. While the communicative approach centres on communicating in the target language, the action-oriented approach requires students to perform a task in a wider social context. (pg. 31 Ontario Min. of Ed. FSL revised curriculum, elementary, 2013)

7 Vision and Goals for French as a Second Language Core, Extended, and Immersion, Grades 1 to 12 (Ontario Min. of Ed. FSL revised curriculum, elementary, 2013) Vision Goals In all French as a second language programs, students realize the vision of the FSL curriculum as they strive to: Use French to communicate and interact effectively in a variety of social settings Appreciate and acknowledge the interconnectedness and interdependence of the global community Students will communicate and interact with growing confidence in French, one of Canada’s official languages, while developing the knowledge, skills, and perspectives they need to participate fully as citizens in Canada and in the world

8 Life-long language learning
One of the 7 enduring ideas of revised FSL curriculum: Authentic Oral Communication: Reception, Production, and Interaction (pg.10 Ontario Min. of Ed. FSL revised curriculum, elementary, 2013)

9 La lecture (la Compréhension écrite)
Sans Frontières: Les Monstres à travers les siècles - photocopied - pre-reading discussion, then used 3 colours of highlighters - one for words that resemble English, one for words that you already know in French, and the third for words that you will need to look up in dictionary.  Checked dictionary words (wrote definitions on side of page), then read in groups and answered questions orally.  Talked briefly about how monsters reflect the fears of society.

10 Sans Frontières listening activity/handout - Le rêve du monstre - followed by speaking/writing - questions  reading/speaking activity/handout: Les monstres, ça t'amuse? écoute - des descriptions des monstres - Finished handout in groups - vocabulary development écoute - Le loup à la porte & Les dents de la mer – formative assessments écoute: la Lagune noire - assessed

Le Bossu de Notre-Dame (Est-ce que Quasimodo est un monstre?  Qui sont les "monstres" de cette histoire?) (Twilight) …Etc…

35 Additional ideas proposed during the workshop on March 29, 2014
Students make short trailer (about one minute) for a monster film (own ideas or adaptation of a real film) then take on roles of director, lead actors, etc. Do a “red carpet walk” with interviews by the media. Can research real Canadian directors and actors for this. Scaffolding required. Reading: find film critiques on-line in French. Read for comprehension and also can use in a group speaking activity to decide what film they would like to see. Add constraints such as the rating and preferences to make the task more “l’approche actionnelle”
