Product Description
Infographics are a visual representation of information using multiple formats (graphics, charts, timelines, photos, diagrams), creative use of color, and a distinct message or objective. They have already become an important way for companies and organizations to disseminate a message, or convey a great deal of facts, to a general public that is under constant information overload. With infographics, the intended audience can use the organization of the information, the well-chosen color-blocking, and the brevity of the text to find, read, and understand what he/she seeks.

Given that infographics in any language are now a part of our daily life, it is important for students to know how to navigate them as they would any other authentic text.

This reading activity for Intermediate to Advanced learners of French allows students to choose their own infographic from a selection I have collected in my Pinterest board Infographies. Of course, the teacher can choose any French infographic online or in print that fits with the students' abilities and interests.

Once students have chosen their infographic, they analyze both the format and content through the questions that cover the following topics:

a) le titre (title)

b) le format comme un organigramme? une explication? une comparaison? une photographie? (design elements such as flowchart, explanation, comparison, photo)

c) le sujet ou message principal (topic or main message)

d) la catégorie comme la santé, l'éducation, la technologie, l'environnment (Category to which it belongs based on the themes I made sure to collect, such as health, education, technology, and environment)

e) le public cible (target audience)

f) l'objectif principal (main objective of this infographic)

Lastly, the students are asked to indicate one new fact or idea that they have learned from this infographic.

Teacher Notes are included, as are some helpful websites for creating one's own infographics.
