French Second Language


Grade 10-12, 15 Days – 73-minute lessons
Unit Overview:
In this unit we will be exploring the topic of senses and feelings. We will be exploring general emotions and feelings of which
the students can use to describe themselves and others. Afterwards, we will focus on the sense of taste and the emotions that are
included in that. We will explore food and be able to explore some of the francophone culture by exploring foods from many
francophone countries. In these discussions we will discover and work with phrases using opinion, so that the students can talk
about their preferences when it comes to food, as well as expressions of giving advice, and negative expressions. This will move into
French restaurants where we will be working towards reading and creating our own menus. We will then use the menus in our final
assessment which will be a presentation of a restaurant scene. Students will have to order and take orders in French using the
menus they have already created.

Unit Rationale:
The reason we are starting with this unit is because I did a survey and this is what the students wanted to start with in terms
of topic from the program of studies. Students should have a say in what they learn. It is important for students to be able to talk
about their senses and express their feelings in a foreign language or else they just sound like robots. We will be studying grammar
concepts included in the program of studies that I feel relate best to this topic and what will be asked of them in their assessments.
This unit also gives the students a chance to learn more about and explore the francophone culture. They will have the opportunity
to learn about and practice situations that they will very likely experience if they ever go to a French speaking place. This unit will
give them many opportunities to use the language in authentic communicative ways which will help them develop their own identity
in the French language.
