Language and Section: French 11/ SP 12
Class theme/topics discussed: Pets and animals
Goal of the class: learn the extended vocabulary of animals and create a debate about it
Structure of the class (unless you attach your lesson plan below):
-Conversation about the animals possessed by the students (10 minutes)
-Reading and commenting the vocabulary of animals in the handout (20 minutes). What are the symbolic animals you know?
-First debate between the “cat” team and the “dog” team. What animals do you prefer and why (15 minutes)
-Second debate, who is the strongest? The elephant or the rhinoceros? (15 minutes)
What technology, media or props did you use? (satellite tv, internet resources, playmobiles, etc.)
-Animal vocabulary handout.
What worked well in this class? What did not work?
-Some students really own crazy animals. They loved the class. But commenting the vocabulary paper was a bit “dry”.
How could this class be improved/ modified?
-Maybe using a video including animals (the jungle book?) would have been stimulating.
