This is a great graphic organizer to help students summarize an article from lemonde.fr as an activity or project. Le Monde has many cultural topics, so its an easy way to tie in a cultural project to what you're currently working on!
It is a Word document, so you may change wording/language to better suite your class. Most of my directions are in French, with all of the responses needed in French. I used this for French III, 11th graders. I used this as a project and it was worth 42 pts, each section is based off of points so there is no need for a rubric!
A student example is given with a link to the article.
