Overview: Presentational speaking task focusing on describing one's self.
Objective: Describe yourself in speaking and in writing by making a collage about yourself and presenting it to the class.
Estimated Time: 2 to 3 weeks preparation time; 3 to 5 minutes presentation time
Suggested Teaching Sequence:
1. Discuss the instructions provided with the students. Add your own due date and project weight percentage in the blanks provided.
2. Assign as an out-of-class project or devote class time to completion.
3. Grade speaking portion of rubric on presentation day. Examine product more closely later to grade the rest of the project using the rubric.
Notes: This is usually the first presentational speaking task that I assign my French 1 students. Therefore, I have them present 2 or 3 times in small groups instead of in front of the entire class. This helps lower the anxiety of the first class presentation in French!
