Bonjour chers élèves,
Here is a little post to help you with your French project (20% of your Summer exam mark) and its presentation in class (20% of your Summer exam mark).
Create a project on any topic you would like, as long as there is a link with France, the Francophonie or the French culture.
- Think of a topic you are interested in and bring it to your teacher who will let you know if this is ok to work on. Examples of past project: Les voitures Peugeot, PSG, La tour Eiffel, Les croissants, etc. – due by the 26th of April
- Your project should be divided in 6 sections:
- Table of contents (What is present in your project with page numbers – 1 page).
- Presentation about yourself (In FRENCH – 1 page).
- Introduction of the project (Introduction to your theme AND the reason you picked this project – 1 page).
- Your research and written work about your topic divided in several sections (6 to 10 pages maximum).
- Conclusion of the project (Conclusion to your theme AND What did you learn through this project – 1 page)
- Sources/Bibliography (Any information/websites you have used to create your project – 1 page).
- The format of your project can be one of the following one:
- A digital presentation (Powerpoint, Prezi, etc.)
- A handwritten scrapbook with collage.
- A typed document (using Microsoft word, Open officem, etc.) printed into a folder or made into a ring binder or other physical form.
- Make sure your work:
- Is well organised.
- Uses colours (if possible).
- Integrates pictures/charts/drawings/etc. that fit your theme.
- Has a “Breathable” and “appealing to the eye” layout.
- Remember, this should be YOUR work hence no copy and paste from website/books/etc. YOU are the creator of YOUR work. You can use quotes of course but sources need to be added at the end of your project/presentation.
- Proof read it and have someone else proof read it for you before your print it or share it with your French teacher.
- Project should be brought to your teacher by Tuesday the 15th of May. If you decide to create a presentation make sure it is sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org before the due date.
