This activity corresponds to the video "À quoi ça sert les primaires" on 1jour1actu.com. First, there is a pre-reading activity that asks students to predict answers to basic questions about the election process based on pictures from the video Next, I have transcribed the text from the video, deleted key vocabulary, and illustrated the text with screen shots. I have highlighted important vocab and included it in a vocab box. Finally, as a post-viewing activity, I ask the students to fill in a T-chart that compares the French and American presidential elections.
This video fits perfectly into an intermediate level unit about LEADERSHIP.
The web address [http://www.1jour1actu.com/info-animee/a-quoi-ca-sert-les-primaires/] for the video is also printed on the handout.
