This assignment is the assignment file that I update each year to have students give presentations on current events.
Students are asked to follow a week's worth of news through French language media sources. This is the handout I distribute in word format including what I ask kids to focus on. I have students scheduled for each week of the semester to summarize French current events articles in French to present the Tuesday following their assigned week. Emphasize that this project will take dedication to complete the week they are assigned to. Ask some stronger students to start the first few weeks prior to asking kids to volunteer and they usually set the bar pretty high. Other kids have seen what to do and have risen to the challenge for me.
Replace the grading box with your own standard and my name Mme Gratte in the two places it appears with your own.
I can't believe what this project has done for the credibility of my French program!
