PowerPoint animations bring movement and sounds to calligrams.After a brief inductive reasoning about calligrams and a short introduction to Apollinaire, students will see examples of calligrams in pictures, than of French words presented with animations and/or sound (i.e. the word "disparaÃ®tre" that disappears from the screen, the word "trembler" that shakes). Students will write/illustrate their own calligrams with the words provided, then will create a PowerPoint or poster with several words in a calligram. I have based the presentation on the unit 1 of Imaginez Â© 2008, Le franÃ§ais sans frontiÃ¨res, Cherie Mitschke, Southwestern University, but it is easily transferable. 17 slides. In French.
