This project is a curriculum unit based on the theme Le Journal to be used in conjunction with the prescribed texts Tous Ensemble for the high school French program. The project contains various detailed lesson plans and directed learning centres where students will ultimately create their own newspaper in French. Not all lessons or centres need to be completed. The person who implements this unit can choose and adapt selected activities. The unit may also be adapted to the objectives of other grade levels. -- The first chapter discusses the importance of the Core French program in Newfoundland and Labrador. The learning of a second language can be very stimulating in areas of intellectual development and attitudes. This chapter promotes Core French as integral to the general education of students. -- Chapter Two explores the communicative language approach to teaching French as a second language. This approach has as its aim communicative competence and the development of procedures for teaching the four language skills, listening, speaking, reading and writing. The review of this philosophy is the basis on which I have developed this unit. -- The third chapter provides a rationale for using the newspaper as a resource which contributes to a multidimensional curriculum in the second language classroom. -- The final chapter includes the curriculum unit. The unit is divided into several sections including lesson plans and directed activities for stations where students work in groups to create their own newspaper.
