8Then and NowThe language classroom in the U.S. has been transformed in the last 20 years to reflect an increasing emphasis on developing students’ communicative competency.
9Then and NowStudents learned about the language (grammar)Focused on isolated skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing)Coverage of a textbookUsing the textbook as the curriculumOnly teaching languageStudents learn to use the languageFocus on the three modes: interpersonal, interpretive, and presentationalBackward design focusing on the end goalUse of thematic units and authentic resourcesUsing language as the vehicle to teach academic content
10Then ....... and ....... Now 6. Use technology as a “cool tool” 7. Same instruction for all students8. Artificial situations from textbook9. Confining language learning in the classroom6. Integrating technologyinto instruction to enhance learning7. Differentiating instruction to meet individual needs8. Personalized real world tasks9. Seeking opportunities for learners to use language beyond the classroom
11Then and Now10. Testing to find out what students don’t know11. Teacher-centered class12. Students “turn in” work only for the teacher10. Assessing to find out what students can do11. Learner-centered with teacher as facilitator or collaborator12. Learners create to “share and publish” to audiences more than just the teacher
125 Step Communicative Lesson Plan (adapted from SWLP) Setting the Stage: Short exploratory activity, prompt, video, etc. that focuses students’ attention before the actual lesson begins.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.
135 Step Communicative Lesson Plan (adapted from SWLP) Guided Practice: Guiding, scaffolded activities that help students analyze and discover vocabulary and grammar and internalize the comp. input’s material.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.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 instructionStep 5: Is cumulative/summative: combines all components and learning in a contextualized format so as to demonstrate learning. (final “test”, project, etc.)
14Food and Hunger French I: (Targeted Proficiency Level – Novice Mid) AP theme: Global ChallengesTopic: Food and Hunger
15Learning ScenarioStudents 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/don’t 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.
16Standards Goal 1: Communication Standard 1.1- Interpersonal Communication: Students engage in conversation, provide and obtain information, express feeling and emotion, and exchange opinions.Standard 1.2 – Interpretive Communication: Students understand and interpret written and spoken language on a variety of topics.Standard 1.3 – Presentational Communication: Students present information, concepts and ideas to an audience of listeners or readers on a variety or topics.Goal 2: CulturesStandard 2.1 – Practices and Perspective: Students demonstrate an understanding of the relationship between the practices and perspectives of the culture studied.Standard 2.2 – Products and Perspectives: Students demonstrate an understanding of the relationship between the products and perspectives of the culture studied.Goal 3: ConnectionsStandard 3.1 – Knowledge of Other Disciplines: Students reinforce and further their knowledge of other disciplines through the foreign language.Standard 3.2 – Distinctive Viewpoints: Students acquire information and recognize the distinctive viewpoints that are only available through the foreign language and its cultures.Goal 4: ComparisonsStandard 4.1 – Nature of Language: Students demonstrate understanding of the nature of language through comparisons of the language studied and their own.Standard 4.2 – Culture: Students demonstrate understanding of the concept of culture through comparisons of the cultures studied and their own.Goal 5: CommunityStandard 5.1 – Beyond the School Setting: Students use the language both within and beyond the school setting.Standard 5.2 – Life-long Learners: Students show evidence of becoming life-long learners by using the language for personal enjoyment and enrichment.
17Setting the Stage Hungry Planet: What the World Eats in a Week Peter Menzel describe the weekly food purchases and costs, showing photographs of the family at home, and these portraits of the entire family surrounded by a week’s worth of groceries.Youtube: Hungry Planet
18Understanding Essential Questions Food is necessary for life. Hunger is everywhere.Essential QuestionsHow do we eat well?Why does hunger exist?
26Tu aimes la ratatouille? La ratatouille est un plat typiquement du Sud, composé de légumes, mijoté, et qui sent bon le soleil. Accompagné de viande ou de céréales comme le riz, le quinoa, le blé, la ratatouille est un plat plein de vitamines. Simple à préparer et économique, la ratatouille chatouille les papilles grâce au mélange subtil des parfums.Pour 4 personnes:3 courgettes1 petite aubergine1 petit poivron vert1 petit poivron rouge1 petit poivron jaune4 tomates bien mûres2 oignons2 gousses d'ailSel, poivreHuile d'oliveBouquet garni
34Guided PracticeFind 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.
36Guided Practice Why people make good / poor food choices Youtube: Planning for good eating–Cartoon:
37Healthy eating I eat well because … to be healthy, to avoid cancer obesityenergyhealthyunhealthy
38Health: Eating Well is a Luxury 1. Rich people do not eat as well as poor people.2. 10% 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.(*) Study Abena, 2004/2005ACTFL Webinar - Laura Terrill
39Summative Interpersonal Assessment Application /ExtensionSummative Interpersonal AssessmentYou 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
40Assessment 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.
41Assessment 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.
42Assessment Presentational Students will create a public service announcement to address nutritional and / or hunger issues in their community.
