The language classroom in the U.S. has been transformed in the last 20 years to reflect an increasing emphasis on developing students communicative competency.
1.Students learned about the language (grammar) 2.Focused on isolated skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) 3.Coverage of a textbook 4.Using the textbook as the curriculum 5.Only teaching language 1.Students learn to use the language 2.Focus on the three modes: interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational 3.Backward design focusing on the end goal 4.Use of thematic units and authentic resources 5.Using language as the vehicle to teach academic content
6. Use technology as a cool tool 7. Same instruction for all students 8. Artificial situations from textbook 9. Confining language learning in the classroom 6. Integrating technology into instruction to enhance learning 7. Differentiating instruction to meet individual needs 8. Personalized real world tasks 9. Seeking opportunities for learners to use language beyond the classroom
10. Testing to find out what students dont know 11. Teacher-centered class 12. Students turn in work only for the teacher 10. Assessing to find out what students can do 11. Learner-centered with teacher as facilitator or collaborator 12. Learners create to share and publish to audiences more than just the teacher
5 Step Communicative Lesson Plan (adapted from SWLP) 1.Setting the Stage: Short exploratory activity, prompt, video, etc. that focuses students attention before the actual lesson begins. 2.Comprehensible Input Introduction: Teacher presentation of contextualized language functions (vocabulary, language structures), skills, and concepts the teacher will impart to the students in context what the students need to know in order to be successful. Student comprehension is periodically assessed by comprehension checks, which help the teacher adjust the presentation to ensure acquisition of language.
5 Step Communicative Lesson Plan (adapted from SWLP) 3.Guided Practice: Guiding, scaffolded activities that help students analyze and discover vocabulary and grammar and internalize the comp. inputs material. 4.Independent Practice (Application/Extension): Activities in which students integrate what they have learned to generate their own language, i.e. communicate. Students spread their wings with much less, if any, formal scaffolding. 5.Assessment Plan/Evaluation: Determines and provides convincing evidence as to whether the objectives of a lesson have been adequately achieved by students. Is both ongoing and formative (steps 2, 3, 4), helping to adjust instruction Step 5: Is cumulative/summative: combines all components and learning in a contextualized format so as to demonstrate learning. (final test, project, etc.)
Food and Hunger French I: (Targeted Proficiency Level – Novice Mid) AP theme: Global Challenges Topic: Food and Hunger
Learning Scenario Students will consider personal connections with food. They will consider the type of food that they and others eat and will indicate their likes and dislikes. They will be able to say why they eat/dont eat certain foods, describing their tastes and commenting on how healthy or unhealthy certain foods are. They will be able to explain the number of calories needed to sustain life and will analyze the number of calories they consume with regard to the US and other food pyramids. Finally, they will consider why hunger exists, where it is prevalent and how various organizations are helping. As a class students will work individually and in groups to draw attention to hunger issues.

Hunger Map 2012
Find out where and explain why hunger exists in the world. Hunger is a complex issue, but some of the main reasons for hunger include poverty, natural disasters (drought, earthquakes, typhoons), poor agricultural managements and infrastructures, over- exploitation of resources and human conflicts.
Students will be able to: say why they make good / poor food choices Vocabulary: I eat well because … to be healthy, to avoid cancer, obesity, energy, healthy, unhealthy
Why people make good / poor food choices Youtube: Planning for good eating–Cartoon: =58eFNxlLr5s
Healthy eating I eat well because … to be healthy, to avoid cancer obesity energy healthy unhealthy
Health: Eating Well is a Luxury 1. Rich people do not eat as well as poor people % of the population of France is considered to be poor. 3. Poor people eat too many French fries. A recent study (*) shows that the poorest people eat poorly and putting their health at risk. A major problem in our country where one in ten are considered poor. Today, buying a chocolate bar, chips or a can of ravioli cost less money than a kilo of oranges, a piece of cheese or fish or meat. Investigators interviewed 1,164 people in Paris, Marseille, Dijon and Seine- Saint-Denis. All benefit from food aid: they are given food because they have not much money. Of these, only one out of 100 eat enough fruits and vegetables to get enough vitamins and fiber. And fewer than one in 10 eat enough cheese to get enough calcium. For these people, health risks are of concern: obesity, heart problems, cancer, behavioral problems. Given the gravity of the situation, food aid should perhaps provide more fresh produce, like fruits, vegetables, cheese. This is what the authors suggest that the survey noted that the less well-fed do not buy themselves fresh. How could they? Half of them spend less than 5 euros per day for food.

Summative Interpersonal Assessment You are attending a student United Nations event. The topic is food and hunger. You will represent one country and interact with others from other countries. Have a conversation where you ask and answer questions to discuss: Where you live Food likes and dislikes Foods that you eat in your country Healthy and unhealthy behaviors Hunger issues where you live
Interpretive Students will read short authentic texts that provide information on food and hunger. They texts will be excerpted from Copain du Monde. Students will be given key English words and asked to find the French equivalent. They will be given statements and will indicate which statements provide information that is shared in the reading. They will also watch a brief youtube clip and state the main idea of the clip in English.
Interpersonal Students will have completed various activities based on visuals throughout the unit. For the interpersonal assessment, students will be given random images and will be expected to ask and answer questions about food choice, likes and dislikes and diet. They will discuss hunger based on the setting of the images.
Presentational Students will create a public service announcement to address nutritional and / or hunger issues in their community.
